Harris Corp.’s RF Communications division in Rochester has received a $24 million contract to design, deploy and maintain a radio system for public safety personnel in Durham, Ontario, Canada.
The contract includes portable and mobile radios, and dispatch consoles.
The 19-site system will allow communications across the region’s agencies and for Durham-based users with neighboring public safety agencies, the company said.
“Because our legacy radio system is nearing the end of its usable life, we are ready to implement a system that will give all of our public safety and support users the latest in communication standards and features,” said Superintendent Joseph Maiorano, project leader for the regional municipality of Durham, in a statement. “Our … process pointed to Harris because they are able to provide our various users with the best mix of capabilities, as well as the coverage, reliability and flexibility needed to serve Durham’s 640,000 residents.”
RF Communications employs some 2,200 local workers.
