The award was presented to Harris at the SDR'09 Technical Conference and Product Exposition this month in Washington, D.C.

'We're extremely pleased the Unity XG-100 was recognized by The SDR Forum, especially because the award is selected by its members,' said Dana Mehnert, group president, RF Communications Division, Harris Corporation.
