Harris Corporation Receives $15 Million Order from U.S. Air Force for Falcon III AN/PRC-117G Multiband Manpack Radios

MELBOURNE, Fla. & ROCHESTER, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Harris Corporation (NYSE:HRS), an international communications and information technology company, has received a $15 million order from the U.S. Air Force for additional Falcon III® AN/PRC-117G multiband manpack radio systems. The AN/PRC-117G will provide Air Force personnel with next-generation tactical communication capabilities for a range of applications, such as precision air support. Harris received this order in the first quarter of fiscal 2012.

"The AN/PRC-117G manpack provides Air Force personnel with enhanced voice, video and wideband data communications,’’ said Dana Mehnert, group president, Harris RF Communications. “This radio delivers assured access to command and control resources, supporting new applications such as fires coordination and close air support. Combat proven and upgradeable, the AN/PRC-117G is the solution to the Air Force’s current and future needs — on the ground and in the air.”

The AN/PRC-117G is deployed by all branches of the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) and provides unprecedented situational awareness on the battlefield by delivering critical real-time information to warfighters on the move. Software-defined and upgradeable, the radio enables mobile ad-hoc networking, voice and high-bandwidth data applications supporting applications such as streaming video, collaborative chat and secure network connectivity.

The AN/PRC-117G is a NSA Type-1 certified wideband manpack radio system. With its fully integrated and NSA-certified High Assurance Internet Protocol Equipment (HAIPE) networking encryption, the AN/PRC-117G provides the highest level of information assurance connectivity to tactical units.

More than 16,000 AN/PRC-117G radios are deployed by all branches of the U.S. Department of Defense, federal agencies, and key allies such as the United Kingdom, Canada, Germany, other NATO countries and Australia. The development of the AN/PRC-117G manpack radio has followed the U.S. Joint Tactical Radio System (JTRS) program’s Enterprise Business Model (EBM). The EBM encourages companies to develop next-generation solutions in tactical communications using their own investment capital. In doing so, the EBM encourages competition, increases innovation, reduces costs and speeds development of important capabilities.
