Philippines: Harris Corporation has been awarded a USD 18 million initial order to provide the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) with Harris Falcon III tactical vehicular radios and intercom systems. The Philippine Army will acquire the radios for its tactical communications modernisation programme. The order was received during the first quarter of fiscal 2015.
Harris will modernise the Light Armored Division of the Philippine Army with the latest Falcon RF-7800V Combat Net Radio integrated into the RF-7800I Intercom Systems. The comprehensive solution for in-vehicle voice and data communications delivers secure tactical network connectivity. "This order will accelerate tactical radio modernisation for the Philippine Army by providing soldiers with enhanced command and control and situational awareness for real-time decision-making. The embedded encryption will provide secure interoperability with more than 13,000 Harris Falcon radios currently fielded within the AFP,” said Brendan O'Connell, President, International Business, Harris RF Communications.
