Harris Corp.’s RF Communications business in Henrietta has received a $6.5 million order from the U.S. Air Force for its multiband, multimission handheld radios.
The Air Force is acquiring the radios to provide line-of-sight communications to civil engineering teams for ground-based missions, such as fire and emergency management and explosive ordinance disposal, the company said.
“The (handheld radios) will provide Air Force civil engineers with high-performance voice communication capabilities for a wide range of tactical missions,” said George Helm, president of RF Communications’ Department of Defense business, in a statement.
RF Communications employs roughly 2,300 workers.
