For third consecutive day, RF Communications announces big radio order

Rochester Business Journal
September 19, 2012

The orders keep coming this week for Harris Corp.’s RF Communications division in Rochester. Today the unit received a $7.2 million order to supply a nation in the Middle East high-frequency manpack radios.

The undisclosed nation is acquiring the radios to provide security forces with high-performance line-of-sight and beyond-line-of-sight tactical communications, the company said.

The news follows a $10 million order RF Communications announced Tuesday to supply the Polish Ministry of National Defense with its multiband manpack radios and high-frequency manpack radios. On Monday, the firm said it had landed a $25 million order from a government in the Middle East for its tactical radios as part of a military communications modernization program.

RF Communications employs 2,200 local workers.
