Harris has won a $100 million follow-on contract to supply additional multiband handheld and high-frequency Falcon manpack tactical radios to the Australian Department of Defence (DoD).

Harris has supplied Falcon III AN/PRC-152 handheld radios and vehicular adapters as well as Falcon II AN/PRC-150(C) high-frequency manpack radios to the Australian Defence Force (ADF) as part of its work on Joint Project 2072. This order forms part of the latest phase of this modernisation project.

Brendan O’Connell, president, International Business, Harris RF Communications, said: ‘This order extends the longstanding relationship between Harris and the Commonwealth of Australia and demonstrates their continued trust in our tactical communications solutions. We deeply value our partnership with the Australian DoD as it embarks on its long-term goal of creating a next-generation wideband tactical communications network.’

The Falcon III AN/PRC-152 is a Joint Tactical Radio System (JTRS) software communications architecture-certified multiband, multimode handheld radio. The radio provides line-of-sight and beyond-line-of-sight communications capabilities. The Falcon II AN/PRC-150(C) high-frequency manpack is a Type-1 HF radio that provides secure, reliable, long-range beyond-line-of-sight communications on the battlefield.

Harris is providing long-term support for the Australian military forces through its Asia-Pacific headquarters in Newstead, Brisbane and the Harris Communications Logistics Centre in Pinkeba, Queensland. The Logistics Centre provides service and support to test and integrate communication systems into various platforms.
