L3Harris Supplies Radios, Infrastructure to Michigan Public-Safety Users
Wednesday, May 19, 2021 | Comments
The state of Michigan selected L3Harris Technologies to provide critical communications for more than 100,000 local, state, federal, tribal and private users on the second largest trunked radio system in the world.

L3Harris will supply Michigan’s Public Safety Communications System (MPSCS) with portable and mobile radios, as well as L3Harris Project 25 (P25) infrastructure and dispatch consoles. The company has five dedicated service channel partners available to support all regions of the state.

“This partnership will continue to improve interoperability and information sharing among public-safety agencies across Michigan and bordering states,” said Nino DiCosmo, president, public safety and professional communications, L3Harris. “Our state-of-the-art technology is designed to meet the rugged needs and high-reliability demands of the MPSCS.”

MPSCS connects more than 2,000 agencies and spans 59,415 square-miles, from the Ohio and Indiana borders to the shores of Lake Superior. The system includes 291 radio towers and more than 119,000 radios.

A L3Harris spokesperson said that the company will not be the sole provider of radios for the system. Motorola Solutions is also a supplier for the MPSCS. 

“The MPSCS plays an important role in providing our state’s public-safety partners with a reliable and sound lifeline,” said Brad Stoddard, director of the Office of MPSCS. “Teaming up with L3Harris continues to provide additional technology choices for all first responders across Michigan. Allowing the public-safety community to move throughout an area without concern of their ability to communicate and having a dependable and easy-to-use system has always been our mission. Our continued focus of partnering with manufacturers testing and validating their technology for use benefits public safety in Michigan while also other states that look to us for our leadership in this area.”

L3Harris’ public safety and professional communications is a leading supplier of communications systems and equipment for public safety, federal, utility, commercial and transportation markets. The business has more than 80 years of experience in public safety and professional communications and supports more than 500 systems around the world.
