Harris Introduces the First Soldier "Smart Radio"

Harris Corporation introduces the first soldier “smart radio,” the RF-7800S-LR Leader Radio, embedded with GPS, encryption and Personal Digital Assistant. 

The RF-7800S-LR provides unit leaders with communication and computing capabilities in a single, lightweight device for enhanced mission flexibility.

This new radio has a built-in computer to deliver voice, wideband data and networking and supporting applications including messaging, video transmission and mapping tools. The Leader Radio is able to connect external devices servicing as the core of the Harris FalconFighter easily integrated into C4 devices.

“The Leader Radio provides commanders more capabilities in a smaller and lighter radio, while maintaining the impressive range offered by the RF-7800S team radio,” said Andy Start, president, International Business, Harris RF Communications.  “With the RF-7800S-LR, commanders are connected to every member of their team via secure, digitized voice and data communications.  By combining various technologies into a single device, the RF-7800S-LR dramatically reduces the soldier’s load.  It is the smallest, lightest and most integrated soldier communication and computing device available on the market today.”
