May 3/11: The US Defense Security Cooperation Agency announces [PDF] Iraq’s official request for various radios and communication equipment to equip its Federal Police Force, as well as associated equipment, parts, training and support.

Harris Corporation in White Plains, NY would be the contractor, for up to 750 of their 50-Watt Vehicular Multiband Handheld Radio Systems, 900 of their 5-watt Multiband Handheld Radio Systems, 50 of their 50-watt Multiband Handheld Base Stations, 50 of their 20-watt High Frequency (HF) Base Stations, and 100 of their 5-watt Secure Personal Role Handheld Radio Systems, along with the other items mentioned above. Security features will be lower than the USA’s full military gear, but it will provide Iraq with updated frequency-hopping capabilities (SINCGARS) as well as a digital data capability.

If a contract is signed, the cost is estimated to be up to $67 million. Implementation of this proposed sale will require 6 Harris personnel to travel to Iraq for operator & maintenance instruction (4 weeks each) and installation support (6 increments, for 2 weeks per visit). ISF Order of Battle author DJ Elliott says that “This is part of the retraining, re-equipping, and re-designation program transferring the provincial Emergency Police to the Federal Police.”
