ROCHESTER, N.Y., /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Harris Corporation, an international communications and information technology company, has received a $27 million order to supply additional JTRS-approved Falcon III® AN/PRC-152(C) multiband handheld radios and AN/VRC-110 vehicular amplifier adapter systems to the U.S. Department of Defense for use in Mine Resistant Ambush Protected All-Terrain Vehicles (M-ATVs). Harris radios are installed in the majority of M-ATV vehicles deployed to Afghanistan.

The AN/VRC-110 is a fully integrated, high-performance multiband vehicular radio system, consisting of an amplifier adapter and two Falcon III® AN/PRC-152(C) multiband handheld radios, which serve as handheld transceivers. The AN/VRC-110 enables warfighters to maintain communications in dismount operations by allowing the AN/PRC-152(C) handheld radios to be quickly removed from the vehicle while remaining powered on and connected to the network. The combat-proven AN/PRC-152(C) is the most widely-fielded JTRS-approved handheld radio with more than 100,000 units deployed.

The Falcon III® AN/VRC-110 and AN/PRC-152(C) were developed by Harris following the U.S. military's Joint Tactical Radio System (JTRS) Enterprise Business Model. Both radios operate on the JTRS Software Communications Architecture. By adhering to the DoD's open-standards approach to radio technology, Harris Falcon III® tactical radios and related systems give customers a future-focused platform that easily integrates pre-planned upgrades and new capabilities while offering compatibility with legacy radios.
