Harris Corporation Demonstrates APCO P25 Interoperability

Harris Corporation : 13 December, 2006  (Application Story)
Harris Corporation Demonstrates APCO P25 Interoperability with Its Falcon(R) III AN/PRC-152(C) Handheld Radio
ROCHESTER, N.Y., Dec. 13, 2006 -- Harris Corporation (NYSE: HRS), an international communications and information technology company, demonstrated a new software-programmable waveform that enables its Falcon(R) III AN/PRC-152(C) to interoperate with the commercially available APCO P25-based radios. This waveform allows communications interoperability among military users, civil authorities, and first responders. The AN/PRC-152(C) will be the first tactical radio to use the APCO P25 waveform.

The Harris AN/PRC-152(C) radio, now deployed by the U.S. military, provides Type-1 secured SINCGARS, Havequick II, HPW, VHF/UHF, and MIL-STD-188-181B UHF SATCOM communications capabilities. It is a Software Communications Architecture (SCA)-based, Software Defined Radio (SDR) with an optional embedded GPS module. The radio is also part of the AN/VRC-110 system that is used by U.S. forces to provide vehicular communications.

The Association of Public Safety Communications Officials International, Inc. (APCO International) is dedicated to the enhancement of public safety communications and has been working to provide interoperable communications through its APCO P25 initiative.

'The addition of the APCO P25 waveform to tactical radios enables military and agency users, including the National Guard and Reserves, the FBI, and FEMA, to communicate with first responders,' said Andy Adams, vice president of Product Line Management, Harris RF Communications. 'The addition of this new waveform validates the flexibility of the AN/PRC-152(C) SCA-based architecture and demonstrates the Harris commitment to continually add features to the Falcon III family.'

The production version of the APCO P25 waveform will be available by summer 2007 in new AN/PRC-152(C) radios or as an optional software upgrade for fielded units.
