Category: Contracts

ROCHESTER, NY, -- Harris Corporation has been awarded a competitive procurement contract to supply the U.S. Marine Corps' MBMMR (Multiband, Multimission Radio) Standardization Program with its combat-proven Falcon® II AN/PRC-117F(C) radios. The first delivery orders of $67 million have been awarded as part of a multi-year $205 million blanket purchase agreement. Deliveries of the new MBMMR systems will begin in the company's second fiscal quarter.

"We have had the opportunity for the past several years to provide the U.S. Marine Corps with advanced HF and multiband tactical radios and support. The selection of the Falcon II AN/PRC-117F(C) as the MBMMR standard is a strong validation of the operational performance and reliability of our radios," said Dana Mehnert, vice president and general manager of U.S. Government products, Harris RF Communications Division. "We are extremely pleased to further strengthen our partnership with the Marine Corps and to support its mission-critical communications requirements for many years to come."

Under the contract, Harris will supply its AN/PRC-117F(C) manpack and AN/VRC-103(V) vehicular systems. The Harris AN/PRC-117F(C) is an advanced multiband radio covering the entire 30 to 512 MHz frequency spectrum. Its embedded COMSEC has NSA certification, ensuring compliance with secure U.S. Government Type-1 encryption algorithms. In addition, the radio is JITC certified for operation over military standard satellites. The AN/VRC-103(V) vehicular product is a fully integrated, compact communications system that includes the Harris AN/PRC-117F(C) tactical radio and the Harris AM-7588 Multiband Power Amplifier. This system also covers the entire 30 to 512 MHz frequency range, offering 50 watts PEP transmit power, embedded COMSEC, SATCOM, and ECCM capabilities.

The radios will be used to upgrade and replace the Marine Corps' active duty and reserve components' legacy tactical radio systems, and also will be used for other USMC programs such as Target Location, Designation, and Hand-Off System (TLDHS), Counterintelligence/Human Intelligence (CI/HUMINT), and Assault Breacher Vehicle (ABV).
