Harris Corporation has received a $78 million order from a nation in central Asia for the next phase of an integrated tactical communications system that provides armed forces with enhanced command and control capabilities.
The nation is expanding its Harris Integrated Tactical Area Communications System (ITACS), which delivers a fully integrated tactical Internet to the mission area. The system provides a range of advanced tactical communication services, including Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), teleconferencing, messaging and email, as well as battlefield management and common operational picture applications.
“The Harris ITACS enables this nation to make a rapid transition to modern, flexible and modular IP-based tactical communications,” said Brendan O’Connell, president, International business, Harris RF Communications. “This system dramatically improves situational awareness by creating a mobile tactical Internet that delivers voice, data and video across the battlefield.”
ITACS includes a private tactical cellular service provided by Harris Fusion 4G LTE (long-term evolution) base stations and ruggedized subscriber terminals. The Fusion system enables users to make mobile calls and access data services securely.
ITACS also includes the RF-7800W High-Capacity Line-of-Sight Radio, a quick-to-deploy solution for long-range data communications, and the RF-7800M Multiband Networking Radio, which provides soldier- and vehicle-based mobile ad hoc wideband networking.
Harris Corporation has successfully completed the next in a series of interoperability tests for the Falcon III AN/PRC-117G multiband manpack radio hosting the Mobile User Objective System (MUOS) waveform. MUOS is the next-generation US Department of Defense military communications system for delivering satellite-based voice and data communication services through secure tactical radios
Harris Corporation has won a contract worth $133 million from US Navy to provide shipboard terminals that give crews access to high-bandwidth voice and data communications. Under the agreement, Harris will provide up to 120 terminals in addition to the 70 terminals already delivered since 2008 under the indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity Commercial Broadband Satellite Program (CBSP) Unit Level Variant (ULV) contract
Harris Corporation has been awarded two indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contracts to supply the US Army with Soldier Radio Waveform (SRW) vehicular appliqué systems. Harris is among three other companies - Exelis, General Dynamics and Thales that were selected to compete for orders on the contracts, estimated $988 million

ViaSat has completed demonstrations of the upgraded Small Tactical Terminal (STT) KOR-24A in combination with the Harris' high-band power amplifier for extended air to ground range operation of both Soldier Radio Waveform (SRW) and Adaptive Networking Wideband Waveform C (ANW2C). The two-channel STT provides simultaneous 63-watt Link 16 and 50-watt SRW communications in a software-defined radio
Harris Corporation has received a $15 million order to provide Falcon III vehicular radio systems for the US Marine Corps AN/MRC-145 program. The order will help Marine Corps to expand its wideband tactical networking capabilities
Harris Corporation has won $770 million worth contracts to provide geospatial data services for the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency for up to five years.
