Harris transmitters selected for Iraq rebuilding effort

Transmitters and related radio equipment from Harris Corporation will be used to help rebuild the communications infrastructure of Iraq, bringing listeners news and entertainment programming from the Broadcasting Board of Governors (BBG) Radio SAWA, Radio Free Iraq, and Voice of America broadcast services.
The contract, awarded to Harris under the auspices of the BBG International Broadcasting Bureau, includes Harris Quest-1 1kW FM radio transmitters, Z10FM 10kW FM radio transmitters, and Z5FM 5kW FM radio transmitters, along with accessories and additional equipment from Orban, Inc. for various sites in Iraq, including the city of Baghdad.
Harris recently created an Iraq Initiatives Office that pools the products and resources of its five communications businesses to address the business opportunities related to the rebuilding of Iraq.
"Harris offers a broad spectrum of innovative, assured communications products that are ideally suited for rapid deployment and infrastructure development," said Howard L. Lance, chairman, president and CEO of Harris. "Our products have been deployed in developing nations around the world, and we are addressing the specific needs of Iraq where infrastructure development is lacking or nonexistent."
