RF Communications gets $297M order from Navy

Rochester Business Journal
October 2, 2012

Harris Corp.’s RF Communications division in Rochester has received a $297 million order for tactical radio systems from the U.S. Department of the Navy.

The five-year contract, awarded by the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command, enables the Navy to acquire Harris Falcon tactical radios and accessories for ground personnel and small craft tactical requirements.

“Harris is the leading global provider of tactical communications to the Department of Defense and allies around the world, with the broadest portfolio of solutions,” said George Helm, president of RF’s Department of Defense business. “This contract enables the Navy to deploy… radios for applications in high-frequency, very-high frequency, ultra-high frequency, line-of-sight and satellite communications.

“Our products are fully interoperable with all U.S. and coalition forces.”

RF Communication employs some 2,200 workers here. Harris stock (NYSE: HRS) was trading midday Tuesday at $51.08, up 23 cents from Monday’s close.
