RF Communications wins $38M in orders from Air Force

Rochester Business Journal

Harris Corp.’s RF Communications division in Rochester has received $38 million in orders for tactical radios that will expand deployment of wideband tactical communications across the U.S. Air Force.

Harris will supply the Air Force with additional multiband manpack and multiband handheld tactical radio systems. The radios will accelerate the rollout of Joint Tactical Radio System wideband networking capabilities to para-rescue, combat communications and other Air Force personnel, the company said.

“Harris’ Falcon III radios provide secure voice communications and enable operators to send and receive images, video, emails, text messages and even participate in teleconferences,” said George Helm, president of RF Communications’ U.S. Department of Defense business, in a statement.

RF Communications employs some 2,100 workers.
