RF Communications secures $21 million radio order

Rochester Business Journal
January 13, 2014

Harris Corp.’s RF Communications division has received $21 million in orders from an undisclosed NATO country for its multiband tactical radios.

The nation is acquiring manpack and handheld radios that will provide special forces and Army soldiers with wideband networking capabilities, as well as line-of-sight, ground-to-air and tactical satellite voice and data communications, company officials said.

“Harris radios provide leading-edge capabilities in wireless tactical communications for unprecedented situational awareness on the battlefield,” said Brendan O’Connell, president of international business at RF Communications, in a statement.

RF Communications ranked third on the most recent Rochester Business Journal list of manufacturers with 2,100 local workers.

Harris shares (NYSE: HRS) were trading midday at $68.27, down 1 percent from Friday’s close.
