US: Harris Corporation has received an order valued at more than USD 50 million from a nation in the Middle East to deliver a secure, integrated tactical area communications solution using Falcon III wideband tactical radios.
As part of this Integrated Tactical Area Communications System (ITACS) solution, the nation is acquiring Harris' software-defined radios to provide mobile, net-centric capabilities to its armed forces. The solution supports the latest wideband and narrowband networking waveforms and enables country-wide voice and data capabilities for critical missions. This will allow forward-deployed teams to stay in constant communications with commanders at operating bases and headquarters.
"The Harris ITACS enables this nation to make a rapid transition to modern, flexible and modular IP-based tactical area communications. The system dramatically improves situational awareness by creating a mobile tactical Internet that delivers voice, data and situational awareness across the country,” said Brendan O'Connell, President, International Business, Harris RF Communications.
