JTRS Battlefield Networking Technology on Falcon III(R) Manpack Radios

Harris Corporation : 08 October, 2009  (Application Story)
Harris Corporation has demonstrated the exchange of high-bandwidth voice, video
and text over a Falcon III AN/PRC-117G radio network using wideband waveforms developed by the Joint Tactical Radio System (JTRS) program. The demonstration took place at the annual Association of the U.S. Army (AUSA) Meeting and Exposition Oct. 5-7 in Washington, D.C.
'Our demonstration illustrates the capability of the AN/PRC-117G radio to form robust communication networks that provide interoperability among air, ground and satellite assets. This radio is compliant with the JTRS Software Communications Architecture and adheres to the DoD's open-standards approach to radio technology,' said Steve Marschilok, President, Department of Defense Business Unit, Harris RF Communications.

Through these networks, which will operate advanced wideband and legacy
narrowband waveforms, the AN/PRC-117G connects commanders and their
deployed personnel in numerous ways so they can take advantage of
critical new applications just now reaching the battlefield.

The demonstrations involved a local area network of AN/PRC-117G radios
operating the JTRS Wideband Networking Waveform (WNW), JTRS Soldier
Radio Waveform (SRW) and the already fielded Harris Advanced Networking
Wideband Waveform (ANW2). During the demonstration, Harris used the
waveforms to demonstrate capabilities at various levels of the battlefield. They included transmitting and receiving streaming live video, chat-room applications and the Tactical Ground Reporting System, or TIGR.

The demonstration was made possible through the JTRS Enterprise Business
Model. Harris ported the WNW and SRW waveforms from the JTRS Information
Repository into the AN/PRC-117G and developed them into a demonstration
state in about five months.
