[Via Satellite 12-23-2014] Harris Corporation has received an $18 million order for Harris Falcon 3 tactical vehicular radios and intercom systems from the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP). The company plans to integrate the Falcon RF-7800V combat net radio with the RF-7800I intercom systems for the Philippine Army’s Light Armored Division for the military’s modernization program. Harris Corp’s solution provides secure tactical in-vehicle voice and data communications.
“This order will accelerate tactical radio modernization for the Philippine Army by providing soldiers with enhanced command and control and situational awareness for real-time decision-making,” said Brendan O’Connell, president of international business at Harris RF Communications. “The embedded encryption will provide secure interoperability with more than 13,000 Harris Falcon radios currently fielded within the AFP.”
