Harris Corp. - Falcon III(TM) AN/PRC-152(C) Compliance

Harris Corporation : 06 September, 2007  (Company News)
Harris Corporation, an international communications and information technology company, has announced that its Falcon III(TM) AN/PRC-152(C) handheld radio has become the first JTRS-approved radio to be certified as compliant without waivers with the Software Communications Architecture (SCA) of the Joint Tactical Radio System. The certification, from the Joint Program Executive Office of the JTRS program, validates the advanced level of technology in the Falcon III multiband handheld radio, which enables easy upgrades and adaptability to new waveforms.
The operating environment of the Falcon III(TM) AN/PRC-152(C) has been certified as fully compliant with version 2.2 of the SCA of the Joint Tactical Radio System (JTRS). The SCA provides the overall blueprint for building JTRS software defined radio systems. The operating environment -- along with the radio's waveform software application -- synchronizes hardware, firmware, and cryptographic components and controls the radio's transmission of voice and data.

The SCA-compliant designation is based on comprehensive test results and a recommendation from the Joint Tactical Radio System Test and evaluation Laboratory (JTRS JTEL.) The operating environment of the Falcon III AN/PRC- 152 (C) previously was certified as SCA-compliant with waivers.

'This certification represents an important accomplishment for the Harris JTRS program and the U.S. government,' said George Helm, vice president and general manager, U.S. government products for Harris RF Communications. 'With this certification, U.S. military agencies can continue to acquire Falcon III AN/PRC-152(C) radios with complete confidence that they not only meet existing standards, but will be able to handle future JTRS applications. It is a true testimony to Harris JTRS technical leadership, and further demonstrates the benefit to opening the JTRS market to competition.'

Rapidly deployable, the Falcon III AN/PRC-152(C) multiband handheld radio and its vehicular adapter, the AN/VRC-110, offer capabilities well beyond legacy single-mode SINCGARS radios. In addition to SINCGARS capabilities, Falcon III radios provide ultra-high frequency (UHF) ground-to-ground line-of- sight communications, close-air support, and tactical satellite communications. The radios also support programmable encryption, and software upgrades using the JTRS SCA. There are more than 17,000 AN/PRC-152(C) radios in use around the world.
