US Department of Defense orders more Harris Corp Falcon III wideband tactical radios

ROCHESTER, NY, January 23, 2012. Harris Corporation (NYSE:HRS) has received $4.8 million in orders from the U.S. Department of Defense for Falcon III® AN/PRC-152A handheld and AN/PRC-117G manpack tactical radios.

This is the first time the DoD has acquired both the AN/PRC-117G and AN/PRC-152A in a single order. The two radios were recently deployed together at the Army's Network Integration Evaluation. In that exercise, the radios extended wideband communication capabilities across an area in excess of 3,200 square miles.

The AN/PRC-117G and AN/PRC-152A are software-defined radios that provide secure voice, video and data communications, enabling network-enabled missions through applications such as streaming video and collaborative chat.

More than 16,000 AN/PRC-117G manpack radios have been shipped to date. The new AN/PRC-152A serves as a complement to the AN/PRC-117G, providing wideband networking and legacy voice in a lightweight, portable handheld form factor.


Wideband networking capabilities will initially be provided by the Harris Adaptive Networking Wideband Waveform (ANW2). The JTRS Soldier Radio Waveform (SRW) to be added to the radio later this year. The AN/PRC-152A also hosts SINCGARS, VHF/UHF Line-of-Sight (VULOS), HaveQuick, IW for tactical satellite communications and other combat net radio waveforms.
