MELBOURNE, Fla. & ROCHESTER, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Harris Corporation (NYSE:HRS), an international communications and information technology company, has received $20 million in orders from the U.S. Army’s Project Manager-MRAP via the GSA, FAS Assisted Acquisition Services (AAS, Region 2) to provide Falcon III® AN/PRC-117G multiband manpack radios and associated AN/VRC-114 vehicular amplifier adapters for use in Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicles.

PM-MRAP is acquiring the AN/PRC-117G radios and related vehicular systems to provide the ability to upgrade to MUOS satellite communications as directed by Army G3/5/7 LANDWARNET. Currently, the majority of the U.S. Army MRAP vehicles are equipped with the Harris Falcon II® AN/PRC-117F. The acquisition of AN/PRC-117G radios provides SATCOM on-the-move capability to MRAP vehicles and could expand capabilities available to crew members to include streaming video, simultaneous voice and data feeds, collaborative chat and connectivity to secure networks.

The field-proven AN/PRC-117G, deployed by the U.S. Army and U.S. Marine Corps, provides unprecedented situational awareness on the battlefield by delivering critical real-time information to warfighters on the move. Software-defined and upgradeable, the radio enables mobile ad-hoc networking, voice and high-bandwidth data applications and support a growing number of network-enabled missions. The radios also provide access to beyond-line-of-sight tactical satellite communications through implementation of the Demand Assigned Multiple Access (DAMA) and Integrated Waveform (IW).

The AN/PRC-117G is the first JTRS Software Communications Architecture-certified and NSA Type-1 certified wideband manpack radio system. With its fully integrated and NSA-certified High Assurance Internet Protocol Equipment (HAIPE) networking encryption, the AN/PRC-117G provides the highest level of information assurance to tactical units.

Harris has shipped more than 16,000 AN/PRC-117G radio systems to the U.S. DoD and allies such as Canada, the United Kingdom, Germany, other NATO nations and Australia. The radio was developed following the JTRS program Enterprise Business Model (EBM). The EBM encourages companies to develop next-generation solutions in tactical communications using their own investment capital to integrate JTRS waveform software. In doing so, the EBM stimulates competition, increases innovation, and reduces costs through software re-use.
