Harris to provide radio systems for US Air Force

Communications and IT company Harris has received a $23.5m (£15.6m) order from the US Department of Defense for JTRS-approved Falcon III AN/PRC-152 multiband hand-held radio systems and accessories.  

The order was awarded by the Joint Program Executive Office of the Joint Tactical Radio System (JTRS), on behalf of the US Air Force.

The AN/PRC-152(C ) is an integrated multiband, multimission hand-held radio that provides war fighters with advanced capabilities for portable line-of-sight and beyond-line-of-sight tactical communications.

The radio also serves as the demountable transceiver in the AN/VRC-110 vehicular amplifier adapter system.
