The US Navy has awarded a contract to Harris to deliver Falcon III and Falcon II tactical radio systems.

Under the $13m order, Harris will deliver its radio systems to naval expeditionary forces, which handle ground-based missions including ordnance disposal.

The radios will provide line-of-sight and beyond line-of-sight communication capabilities for various missions.

Falcon III is the next generation of radios that support the US military’s joint tactical radio system (JTRS) requirements, and worldwide network-centric operations.

Harris Department of Defense business president Brendan O’Connell said the radios were software-defined and adaptable to meet emerging requirements and changing mission standards.
