Falcon III AN/PRC-152(C) handheld radios and accessories for the U.S. Air Force


Strict Standards: Only variables should be passed by reference in /home/defensef/public_html/components/com_zone/handleHTML.php on line 623
Harris Corporation
: 23 July, 2009  (Application Story)
Harris Corporation has been awarded $44 million in orders to provide JTRS-approved Falcon III AN/PRC-152(C) handheld radios and accessories to the U.S. Air Force. The
radios will support the changing communication needs of the entire Air Force enterprise, including Security Forces, Special Operations, Combat Engineers and Air Mobility Command (AMC).
The Air Force is acquiring AN/PRC-152(C) radios along with vehicle
adapter amplifiers, base stations, and repeater systems for use as core
elements of a modern adaptive communications system. The system offers
mounted and dismounted forces, secure and reliable extended range
communications links among team members and back to the Mission Command
Post or Tactical Operations Centers.

'Air Force personnel are taking on additional duties outside the wire,
and as a result are in need of advanced communication capabilities that
are smaller, lighter and more mobile,' said Dana Mehnert, group
president, Harris RF Communications. 'Harris is pleased to be the
supplier of choice. More than 80,000 JTRS-approved, multiband,
multi-mission Falcon III AN/PRC-152(C) radios have been deployed around
the world. This radio addresses the interoperability needs of today's
warfighter and is fully upgradeable to address changing technical
standards and mission requirements.'

The AN/PRC-152(C) offers users a wide range of capabilities such as
SINCGARS interoperability, APCO P25, ultra high-frequency (UHF)
ground-to-ground line-of-sight communications, HAVEQUICK II, Close-Air
Support and programmable encryption. The AN/PRC-152(C) also serves as
the handheld-based transceiver of the Falcon III AN/VRC-110; a
high-performance, multiband vehicular system that serves as an improved
alternative to legacy SINCGARS radios. The radio has been certified as
fully compliant with version 2.2 of the JTRS Software Communications
Architecture and certified Type-1 compliant by the National Security
Agency (NSA).
