28 Mar 02. Harris Corporation (NYSE:HRS), has been awarded a $13.2m contract by the Lithuanian Ministry of Defence (MoD). Under the terms of the contract, Harris will supply high frequency (HF) and very high frequency (VHF) radios from its Falcon(tm) II family of tactical radios.
Harris will provide Lithuania’s Army with RF-5800H and RF-5800V radio systems, which can be configured for vehicular, manportable, and base stations, providing secure, reliable voice and data communications for a variety of mission situations. Deliveries are expected to be completed by June 2003. This order continues the modernization of the Lithuanian Army’s communications systems and significantly bolsters its interoperability with NATO.
This project will include assembly and final test of the RF-5800V radio at Elsis in Kaunas, Lithuania. The Elsis facility already works with Harris to provide in-country Level-III maintenance for RF-5800V radios for the Lithuanian Army, and is key to the Lithuanian Army’s operational readiness posture.
