Harris’ tactical communications system portfolio includes its industry-leading Falcom III 7800 tactical radio family. Brunei’s military service will get different types of industry Falcon III tactical radios which will not only help the department to boost its voice and data communication services but also solve mission critical issues by providing logistical and customer field support.
