Falcon family grows [ES2016D1]

13 June 2016

Harris Corporation (Hall 5, Stand B547) has introduced the Falcon III RF-7850S advanced wideband secure personal radio (SPR), providing modern-day warfighters with secure networked voice, data and situational awareness in a single, lightweight, easy-to-use platform. More than 2,000 have been sold since its release in March this year.

The RF-7850S is the successor to the globally fielded RF-7800S SPR Team Radio and provides increased power as well as greater waveform and spectrum flexibility.

The new radio expands Harris’ next-generation Falcon III radio family, which now covers every tier of the battlefield, from handhelds at the tactical edge to vehicular and airborne communications.

“We can now offer our customers a common user experience across each tactical tier of the battlefield,” said Matt Nearpass, director, product management, Global Networking Products, Harris Communication Systems. “Leveraging our product family approach and the interoperability it provides offers tremendous value to our customers – one platform, seven products.”
