Harris Corporation Adds Broadband Satellite Data Mode to JTRS-Approved Falcon III(R) AN/PRC-117G Multiband Manpack Radio
Date:10/5/2009

Software Upgrade Extends Range to Beyond-Line-of-Sight Communications Through Integration with Harris RF-7800B Broadband Global Area Networking (BGAN) Terminals

WASHINGTON, Oct. 5 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- (AUSA Booth #1439) -- Harris Corporation (NYSE: HRS), an international communications and information technology company, today announced the addition of broadband satellite data capability to its JTRS-approved Falcon III(® )AN/PRC-117G wideband networking radio. The software upgrade adds significant new features that will facilitate global, high-data-rate communications between senior military commanders and personnel at the tactical edge.

Integration of the AN/PRC-117G radio with the Harris RF-7800B family of ruggedized Broadband Global Area Network (BGAN) satellite terminals provides warfighters with unique end-to-end, Type-1 secure beyond-line-of-sight (BLOS) network communications connectivity. The Falcon III AN/PRC-117G is the first JTRS-approved tactical radio to offer Type-1 secure access to high-bandwidth applications such as streaming video, reconnaissance information and biometrics--in addition to narrowband legacy waveforms.

"The integration of the AN/PRC-117G with our BGAN terminals provides customers with a powerful solution for distributing information to the connected battlefield," said Steve Marschilok, president of Department of Defense Business, Harris RF Communications. "Our integrated system delivers BLOS data and intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance communication links from the first tactical mile to strategic infrastructure, providing users at all levels with a more thorough, common operational picture."

Customer-Focused Technology: Falcon III AN/PRC-117G

The AN/PRC-117G now delivers advanced wideband line-of-sight voice and data networking capabilities through the Harris-developed Advanced Networking Wideband Waveform (ANW2). The ANW2 waveform provides warfighters with secure streaming video, biometrics, classified Internet access and other data intensive intelligence applications.

The new software upgrade will allow users to extend the range of ANW2 data to beyond-line-of-sight by linking the AN/PRC-117G 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, end-to-end Type-1 encrypted IP data across an extended battle space.

The addition of BGAN data mode to the AN/PRC-117G also will provide global over-the-horizon "reach-back" capability, connecting operators with senior commanders. This capability allows for faster and more informed decision-making, improved mission efficiency and troop safety. Harris has developed both a Class 2 Land Portable BGAN terminal for dismounted applications and a Class 10 Land Mobile BGAN terminal for vehicles on the move. Both terminals use the Inmarsat-4 BGAN satellite constellation. They are available to domestic and international customers.

The Falcon III AN/PRC-117G radio is certified by the Joint Interoperability Test Command (JITC) as compliant with Demand Assigned Multiple Access (DAMA) military standards and upgradeable to access the Mobile User Objective System (MUOS), both for transmitting high-bandwidth voice and data over tactical military satellites. The radio also has received certification for Type-1 information security from the National Security Agency.
