Harris Corporation (NYSE:HRS), an international communications and information technology company, has received $61 million in orders to enable the Poland Ministry of National Defense to better communicate with coalition partners.
Poland is acquiring Harris Falcon III® AN/PRC-117G manpack and AN/PRC-152A handheld radios for the next phase of its tactical radio modernization. The Harris radios will provide Poland's armed forces with secure wideband combat net radio, tactical satellite and ground-to-air communications.
Both radios are equipped with the Harris Adaptive Networking Wideband Waveform (ANW2), which enables military forces to leverage advanced battle management applications such as collaborative chat, streaming video and intelligence collection.
"Our Falcon III(r) radios will enable Polish military personnel to communicate seamlessly with U.S. and NATO forces during joint warfighting missions,'' said Brendan O'Connell, president, international business, Harris RF Communications. "Our radios unite the forces by making it easier to exchange voice, data and situational awareness, even while on the move.''
Harris has deployed more than 40,000 AN/PRC-117G and AN/PRC-152A radios worldwide. They are in use by all branches of the U.S. Department of Defense and more than 15 allied nations.
