Harris Corporation Receives a $35 Million Delivery Order For Falcon II Radios from U.S. Marine Corps
ROCHESTER, NY, August 17, 2006 — Harris Corporation (NYSE:HRS) today announced that it has received a delivery order totaling $35 million from the Marine Corps Systems Command (MARCORSYSCOM). Under the contract, Harris is supplying the Marines with high-frequency (HF) AN/PRC-150(C) Falcon® II radio systems for tactical, secure, and joint communications applications.
“Harris is fully committed to supporting the U.S. Marine Corps,” said Dana Mehnert, president, Harris RF Communications Division. “We are proud to be able to offer rapid delivery of these secure tactical radios and to provide the technical field support that will help to enhance the effectiveness of the Marine Corps missions.”
The AN/PRC-150(C) manpack and AN/VRC-104(V)3 vehicular systems will be used to modernize the legacy MRC-138s and GRC-193s high-frequency tactical radio systems of the Marine Corps active duty and reserve components and also will be used for other USMC programs.
The Harris AN/PRC-150(C) HF manpack radio, which provides the Marines with secure, long-range voice and data capabilities even in the harshest conditions, has become the long-range combat net radio of choice for U.S. forces. Its embedded information-security features enable secure, ground-to-ground and ground-to-air communications in all HF modes and in fixed-frequency modes with SINCGARS radios.
The Harris AN/PRC-150(C) is an advanced, high-frequency radio covering the 1.6 to 60 MHz frequency spectrum. The AN/PRC-150(C) is the only HF radio with embedded communications security that has been certified for transmission of U.S. classified information. The AN/VRC-104(V)3 vehicular product is a fully integrated communications system that includes the Harris AN/PRC-150(C) tactical radio and 150 watt high-frequency power amplifier. This system also covers the 30 to 60 MHz frequency range offering secure Type-1 interoperability with the Marine Corps’ AN/PRC-117F(C) multiband multimission radios (MBMMR).
