Army boosts value of RF contract by $847 million

Rochester Business Journal
October 22, 2013

The U.S. Army has increased the ceiling value of a tactical communications contract with Harris Corp. RF Communications by $847 million. The initial contract was awarded in 2011. 

The increase allows the U.S. government to continue to acquire the firm’s tactical radios to assist international partners of the Department of State and Department of Defense, the Rochester-based RF Communications said.

The company did not disclose the original value of the contract and did not immediately respond to inquiries.

The contract is part of the Foreign Military Sales program, which supports coalition building and interoperability through sales of defense equipment, training and services.

The contract includes the entire Harris Falcon family of tactical radio solutions and accessories, including manpack and personal equipment.
