RF Communications gets contract worth up to $397 million

Rochester Business Journal

Harris Corp.’s RF Communications division in Rochester has been awarded a contract with a potential value of $397 million to continue providing its handheld tactical radio systems to the Department of Defense.

The two-year contract, awarded by Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command on behalf of the Defense Department, allows U.S. forces to acquire radios from the company’s handheld radio family, along with accessories and training. The contract includes two additional one-year options that, if exercised, could boost the potential value to $712 million, the company said.

“The new (contract) provides the government with important new flexibility in meeting the emerging needs of warfighters for tactical communications,’’ said George Helm, president of RF Communications’ Department of Defense business, in a statement.

RF Communications employs some 2,200 local workers.
