New York-based Harris Corporation has received a $12-million order for tactical vehicular radios, intercom systems, and handheld radios for the communications modernization program of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP).
Harris will provide the Light Armored Division of the Philippine Army with the 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. Harris also will provide the Falcon RF-7800V handheld VHF Combat Net Radio for general use by the army.
“These radios will provide soldiers in the Philippine Army with advanced command and control, and real-time situational awareness capabilities,” said Brendan O?Connell, president for tactical communications at Harris Communication Systems.
“They also will have secure interoperability with more than 15,000 Harris Falcon radios currently fielded within the AFP.”
