Under the $12m contract, the company will provide Harris Falcon III vehicular and handheld radios to the AFP.

Harris will provide the Light Armoured Division of the Philippine Army with Falcon RF-7800V combat net radios, which will be integrated into RF-7800I intercom systems for in-vehicle voice and data communications.

"They also will have secure interoperability with more than 15,000 Harris Falcon radios currently fielded within the AFP."

The RF-7800I systems allow vehicle crew members to communicate with each other, and can integrate with other vehicular and handheld tactical radio systems.

Harris will also provide the Falcon RF-7800V radio for general use by the AFP.

Weighing 1.1kg, the lightweight radio is fully interoperable with Falcon II radio family. It is suitable for time-critical battle management systems (BMS) due to its integrated GPS receiver and Harris’s new BMS waveform architecture.
