Harris Corp. has demonstrated its tactical radio systems for the U.S. Army’s new vehicular-based radio networking program.
Soldiers connected to command headquarters through email, chat and file download services using the Falcon III AN/VRC-118 mid-tier networking vehicular radio, Harris said Tuesday.
“This successful demonstration represents a very important step for the Army in fielding a critical mid-tier solution that will enhance the robustness of the tactical network,” said George Helm, president of the Defense Department business at Harris RF Communications.
The MNVR program is also intended to apply the Warfighter Information Network–Tactical services to terrestrial network.
Falcon III AN/VRC-118 is designed to provide two channels of voice and data functions.
The radio system is scheduled for delivery in June following the demonstration at Fort Bliss, Texas.
