MELBOURNE, Fla. & ROCHESTER, N.Y.,--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Harris Corporation (NYSE:HRS), an international communications and information technology company, has received a $10.7 million order to supply tactical radio systems and software to a country in the Middle East. The radios and software will provide the nation’s armed forces with tactical line-of-sight and beyond-line-of-sight communications and situational awareness capabilities.
