General Dynamics completes demonstration of MUOS-based communications on JTRS HMS Radio

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. Feb., 18, 2012. Using the Joint Tactical Radio System (JTRS) Handheld, Manpack, Small Form Fit (HMS) two-channel networking radio (AN/PRC-155), General Dynamics C4 Systems recently completed a demonstration of secure voice and data communications via the Mobile User Objective System (MUOS) satellite-communications waveform.


The demonstration used an AN/PRC-155 manpack radio – running the MUOS waveform software – to transmit encrypted voice through a MUOS-satellite simulator to the MUOS ground station equipment that will soon be deployed in Sicily.

MUOS is a military satellite communications system. Development of the MUOS waveform remains on track for completion in the third quarter of 2012. By year-end, the MUOS capability will be available on the AN/PRC-155 manpack radio, the first MUOS terminal that will be available to soldiers.

General Dynamics C4 Systems is the prime contractor of the JTRS HMS radio program, which includes the two-channel PRC-155 networking radio, the PRC-154 Rifleman Radio and several other small form fit networking radios. The JTRS HMS program stipulates that two qualified manufacturers compete for full-rate production contracts. General Dynamics and Thales Communications, Inc. will manufacture the PRC-154 Rifleman Radio. The PRC-155 will be manufactured by General Dynamics and Rockwell Collins.
