Harris Corporation Unveils the GR-100 Wireless Location System to Track First Responders Inside Buildings

Situational Awareness System Links First Responders with Command to Enable Enhanced Personnel Tracking and Emergency Response Coordination

CHICAGO, IL, August 27, 2010 (IAFC 2010, Booth 4450) - Harris Corporation (NYSE:HRS), an international communications and information technology company, today introduced the Harris GR-100 System, a wireless location solution that tracks and transmits the location of firefighters and first responders while they are inside buildings, enabling on-scene commanders to better coordinate efforts and monitor personnel.

The Harris GR-100 uses unique accuracy-enhancing algorithms, in addition to inertial sensors and GPS (Global Positioning System) capabilities, to provide position information more precisely and reliably than other solutions available today. This gives incident commanders and safety officers accurate location information on first responders who are inside buildings.

"The compact, personnel-mounted Harris GR-100 System provides pinpoint location data in three dimensions, thus meeting a long standing critical need of first responders for in-building location awareness," said Steve Shanck, president, Harris Public Safety and Professional Communications. "Utilizing Harris' more than 80 years of radio expertise, the Harris GR-100 System gives first responders a reliable wireless link between personnel inside the building and the commanders outside."

The Harris GR-100 System is a complete solution for the fire service. It includes a Tracker Module unobtrusively mounted to the firefighter's SCBA (Self Contained Breathing Apparatus) frame, a network radio system to communicate location information to incident commanders outside the building, and a Commander Unit display on a ruggedized tablet computer for the incident commander and safety officer. Location information in three dimensions is updated from interior personnel positions every few seconds.

The Harris GR-100 System will be demonstrated in the Harris Corporation booth (#4450) at FRI (Fire Rescue International) 2010 in Chicago, August 27 and 28, 2010. FRI 2010 is the premier show for the International Association of Fire Chiefs, attended by fire chiefs from all over the world.
