Harris Corp.’s RF Communications division in Rochester has received $15 million in orders from an undisclosed nation in Latin America for public safety and tactical radios and accessories.

The equipment will be integrated into the country’s new wireless digital voice and data network for national security applications, the company said.

“These new Harris tactical and land mobile radios will enhance the capabilities of this nation’s forces to coordinate their efforts to provide safety and security to its citizens,” said Brendan O’Connell, president of RF Communications’ international business unit, in a statement.

RF Communications employs some 2,200 local workers.
