RF Communications gets $78M order for communications system

Harris Corp.’s RF Communications division in Rochester has received a $78 million order from an undisclosed nation in central Asia for the next phase of an integrated tactical communications system that provides armed forces with enhanced command and control capabilities.

The nation is expanding its Harris Integrated Tactical Area Communications System, which delivers an integrated tactical Internet to the mission area, the company said.

The system provides a range of advanced tactical communication services, including Voice over Internet Protocol, teleconferencing, messaging and email, as well as battlefield management and common operational picture applications.

“This system dramatically improves situational awareness by creating a mobile tactical Internet that delivers voice, data and video across the battlefield,” said Brendan O’Connell, president of RF Communications’ international business, in a statement.
