Harris, an international communications and information technology company, has won a $15 million contract to supply tactical communications equipment and accessories to the Polish Ministry of National Defense.
Harris will provide Falcon II RF-5800H and RF-5800M manpack radios, vehicular installations, accessories and spare parts to the Combat Net Radio program of the Polish Armed Forces. The contract from the Ministry of National Defense was awarded through Military Communications Works (MCW) No 2, located in Czernica, Poland.
According to the company, the Falcon II RF-5800M transceivers are software-programmable digital radios supporting continuous VHF/UHF operation across the 30 to 512MHz bandwidth. Each transceiver has numerous ECCM modes available to defeat enemy-jamming systems in a single compact and lightweight package.
The Harris RF-5800M claims to meet the military and civilian ground-to-air and ground-to-ground requirements, and includes Harris Quicklook 1A, which allows for compatible operations with other Harris ECCM radios.
Jerzy Surma, president of MCW No 2, said: Through this contract, Harris will continue the standardization of the RF-5800H and RF-5800M radios in the Polish military. Our radios will allow Polish peacekeepers to use state-of-the-art tactical communications systems to complete their missions in deployed areas.
