Harris Corporation Receives National Security Agency Certification for Falcon(R) III Multiband Manpack Radio


Strict Standards: Only variables should be passed by reference in /home/defensef/public_html/components/com_zone/handleHTML.php on line 623
Harris Corporation
: 07 January, 2008  (Application Story)
Harris Corporation, an international communications and information technology company, has received certification from the National Security Agency (NSA) for its Falcon(R) III multiband, multimission manpack radio.
The Falcon III AN/PRC-117G(C), which was known as the RF-300M-MP during development, is the first wideband networking radio to utilize the Software Communication Architecture (SCA) and receive NSA Type-1 certification for the protection of voice and data traffic up to the TOP SECRET level. First deliveries will be made immediately.

The Falcon III AN/PRC-117G(C) is a manpack companion radio to the JTRS- approved Falcon III AN/PRC-152(C) multiband handheld and AN/VRC-110 vehicular radios. The Falcon III family of software-defined tactical communication equipment is designed to advance the U.S. military's vision of network-centric warfare.

'Certification was a critical requirement for fielding the Falcon III AN/PRC- 117G(C), which is the first Type-1 secure tactical radio with wideband networking waveforms,' said George Helm, vice president and general manager, U.S. Government Products, Harris RF Communications. 'Type-1 certification ensures that our customers will have the highest levels of information security for their emerging network-centric communications. The programmable Sierra(TM) II encryption technology used in the Falcon III manpack provides this level of security for wideband networking waveforms as well as narrowband legacy waveforms and will host new security algorithms as they are developed.'
