Category: Contracts

ROCHESTER, NY -- Harris Corporation, an international communications and information technology company, has received an $11 million order to provide the U.S. Air Force and the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) with Falcon III multiband handheld radios and vehicular amplifier systems.

The U.S. Air Force is acquiring the Harris Falcon III AN/PRC-152(C) multiband, multimission handheld radios to provide line-of-sight and beyond-line-of-sight tactical communications. The AN/PRC-152(C) is the most widely fielded NSA Type-1 certified, JTRS SCA-certified handheld radio, with more than 130,000 units deployed worldwide.

The DoD also is acquiring Harris Falcon III AN/PRC-110 systems for use in multiple variants of the Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicles. The AN/VRC-110 is an amplifier adapter that includes two AN/PRC-152(C) radios, which serve as handheld transceivers.

"We continue to deliver Falcon III radios to the Air Force and provide airmen with secure tactical communications, which is vital to success in a wide range of mission areas," said Brendan O'Connell, president, U.S. Department of Defense business, Harris RF Communications. "The AN/PRC-152(C) and its vehicular adapter are also widely deployed by all branches of the U.S. Department of Defense and key U.S. allies. The AN/VRC-110 is installed in the majority of the DoD's MRAP vehicle fleet, providing both line-of-sight and beyond-line-of-sight communications."

The Air Force and DoD are acquiring the AN/PRC-152(C) radios and AN/VRC-110 systems via the Consolidated Single-Channel Handheld Radio (CSCHR) contract through the Joint Program Executive Office for the Joint Tactical Radio System (JTRS). The AN/PRC-152(C) was developed using the JTRS Enterprise Business Model (EBM). The EBM encourages companies to develop next-generation solutions in tactical communications using their own investment capital to integrate JTRS waveform software. In doing so, the EBM stimulates competition, increases innovation, and reduces costs through software re-use.
