Harris Corp.’s RF Communications division in Rochester has received a $23 million order from an unnamed country in the Middle East as part of its tactical communications modernization program.

The company is to provide the country with radios, accessories, software, service and support as part of a wideband tactical communications system. The system provides battlefield forces with greater command and control and situational awareness by transmitting tactical voice, video and data, RF Communications said.

“Harris is helping customers transition legacy tactical communications to modern networked wideband systems,” said Brendan O'Connell, president of RF Communications’ international business, in a statement. “These systems provide security forces with critical real-time tactical information in all forms.”

RF Communications employs some 2,100 local workers.
