Harris Tactical Communications is the leading global supplier of secure radio communications, tactical communication networks and embedded high-grade encryption solutions for military, public safety, government and commercial customers.
Tactical Communications serves the U.S. Department of Defense, international militaries and government agencies with a comprehensive line of secure radios and systems. The Falcon® family of software-defined tactical radio systems encompasses manpack, handheld and soldier-worn vehicular applications. Falcon III® is the next generation of radios supporting network-centric operations worldwide. The newest Falcon III radio – the Harris AN/PRC-117G(V)1(C) multiband manpack radio – is the only system that is bringing true wideband networking capabilities to the battlefield today. These systems, along with the Falcon III handheld and vehicular radios, give customers unprecedented situational awareness capabilities, including streaming video to the tactical edge of the battlefield.
Internationally, Harris Falcon radios form the foundation for high-performance system solutions that address comprehensive requirements in command and control, homeland security, disaster relief, narcotics interdiction and other applications. For instance, the new RF-7800S Secure Personal Radio acts as the hub in Falcon Fighter, a newly introduced soldier system.
We have received numerous testimonials from warfighters telling us Harris tactical radios are changing the way they conduct their missions, and are saving military and non-combatant lives on the borderless battlefield.
Underpinning the success of our Tactical Communications segment is its commercial business model, which fosters the agility to innovate and introduce new solutions faster than our competitors.
