TAMPA, Florida. U.S. Army officials awarded Harris Corp. in Rochester, N.Y., a five-year, $12 million IDIQ contract to provide high-frequency (HF) tactical radio antennas. Harris officials made the announcement today during MILCOM 2015 in Tampa, Florida.

Under the contract, Harris engineers will provide the Army with the company's RF-3134 HF full-loop antennas, which may be used for fixed installations or on vehicles, enabling HF communication on-the-move. The RF-3134 interfaces with the Harris Falcon series of HF radios. It is lightweight and has a low physical profile.

"The HF full-loop antenna provides a combination of high bandwidth and signal efficiency," says Chris Young, president, Harris Communication Systems.
