(NASDAQ: CAMP), a leading provider of wireless products, services and solutions, today announced its alliance partner, Harris Corporation, has been selected by the State of Oregon as the radio system and service provider for the Oregon Wireless Interoperability Network (OWIN). As a member of the project implementation team, CalAmp will provide its Dataradio base stations and mobile radios for the wireless data portion of this multi-phased project.
