Falcon III RF-340M multi-channel manpack radios, which provide enhanced command-and-control, have been ordered from Harris Corporation by the U.S. military.

"This is our second order for the RF-340M, demonstrating the growing interest in Harris' next-generation, two-channel solution for mounted and dismounted tactical communications," said George Helm, president, Department of Defense business, Harris RF Communications. "The RF-340M's ability to send and receive voice and data over multiple networks simultaneously significantly enhances a warfighter's situational awareness and mission command capability.

"This is the DOD's radio of tomorrow, delivered today."

Harris said each of the system's two radio channels host all required U.S. government wideband and narrowband waveforms -- including the next-generation narrowband Mobile User Objective System waveform -- without the need for add-on hardware modules. The system also supports multi-channel cross-banding.

Harris did not disclose the value of the Department of Defense contract nor the number of RF-340M systems to be delivered.
