ROCHESTER, N.Y. Officials with the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) ordered Falcon III tactical vehicular radios and intercom systems from Harris Corp. under an $18 million initial contract. The Philippine army will use the radios for its tactical communications modernization program.

Harris will upgrade the communications capability of the Philippine army's Light Armored Division with the latest Falcon RF-7800V Combat Net Radio integrated into the company's RF-7800I Intercom Systems to provide secure tactical network connectivity. The embedded encryption in the radios will enable secure interoperability with more than 13,000 Harris Falcon radios currently used by the AFP."
