Falcon III(R) RF-7800M multiband manpack radio gets broadband capability

Harris Corporation : 08 September, 2009  (Application Story)
A software upgrade has extended the range to beyond-line-of-sight communications via integration with Harris RF-7800B Broadband Global Area Networking (BGAN) terminals. The addition of a broadband satellite capability to its Falcon III(R) RF-7800M wideband networking radio that will enable global-area high-data-rate communications between senior military commanders and personnel at the tactical edge.
Falcon III(R) RF-7800M multiband manpack radio gets broadband capability

Integration of the RF-7800M radio with the Harris RF-7800B family of ruggedized Broadband Global Area Network (BGAN) satellite terminals provides warfighters with a unique end-to-end secure beyond-line-of-sight network connectivity.

'The integration of the RF-7800M with our tactical BGAN terminals creates a powerful system that will provide our customers with capabilities they cannot get anywhere else,' said Hal McDougall, vice president and acting general manager, International Business, Harris RF Communications. 'Our integrated system provides high-speed, secure communication links between the first tactical mile and strategic infrastructure, providing voice relay, ISR (intelligence, surveillance
and reconnaissance) data and a common operating picture.'

The RF-7800M currently provides advanced voice and data wideband line-of-sight networking capabilities through the Harris-developed Advanced Networking Wideband Waveform (ANW2). The ANW2 waveform provides warfighters with secure voice transmission, as well as streaming video, biometrics, classified Internet access and other intelligence applications.

The new software upgrade will allow users to extend the range of ANW2 data to beyond-line-of-sight by linking the radio to the BGAN network through the RF-7800B. The combined system offers throughput rates of up to 2 Mbps over the BGAN network when using embedded TCP/IP acceleration and compression, thus reducing INMARSAT costs. It is the only integrated, military-rugged, wideband SATCOM on-the-move system capable of seamlessly maintaining high-speed encrypted IP data across an extended battle space. The RF-7800M is available to international customers.

The integrated system will allow global top-to-bottom connectivity which will improve communications and safety at all levels.
