ROCHESTER, N.Y. — L3Harris Technologies (NYSE:LHX) has been awarded $176 million in orders for multi-channel handheld and vehicular radio systems by the U.S. Marine Corps to enable interoperability across U.S. Department of Defense, Special Operations Command and key allies.
The orders are the first under a recently awarded 10-year, $750 million IDIQ contract for the L3Harris Falcon IV® family of manpack and handheld radios. The Falcon IV family has also been broadly adopted by the U.S. Army, U.S. Special Operations Command, U.S. Air Force and a growing number of key allies.
“The battle-proven radios to be delivered within these orders will extend Marines’ speed and agility by providing secure and resilient communications to meet their unique mission needs,” said Chris Aebli, President, Tactical Communications, L3Harris. “Our multi-channel handheld radios are the most advanced systems available today, offering true resilience against peer adversary threats and enabling Joint All-Domain Command and Control.”
L3Harris Multi-Channel Handheld Radios provide a wide range of secure communications waveforms as well as simultaneous integration of voice and data communications, network routing, and gateway functions. Software-defined communications architectures enable enduring value while consistently meeting rigorous requirements for performance, size, weight and power, and security, including the NSA crypto-modernization standards –all critical to achieving the Marine Corps’ vision for Force Design 2030. In addition, the flexible software-defined architecture enables Marines to quickly add new waveforms and enhanced capabilities to address evolving requirements.
