SOCOM Orders Radios from Harris Corporation
USSOCOM is improving its communications ability with the purchase of additional radios. It has just presented Harris Corporation with a contract of $18 million in additional wideband tactical radios - more Falcon III AN/PRC-117G and AN/PRC-152A radios. The radios, among other purposes, will deliver tactical Internet capability to the battlefield. Applications will run on the radios (and network) that provide collaborative chat, biometric enrollments, video conferencing, and video ISR.
