|Harris Corporation's Widely Fielded Falcon III AN/PRC-152(C) Receives SCA-Certification from the JTRS Joint Program Executive Office|
Harris Corporation (NYSE:HRS), an international communications and information technology company, has announced that the Software Communications Architecture (SCA) of its Falcon® III AN/PRC-152(C) has been reviewed and tested by the Joint Program Executive Office of the Joint Tactical Radio System Test and Evaluation Laboratory (JPEO JTEL) and certified with waivers by Mr. Dennis Bauman, the Joint Program Executive Officer of the Joint Tactical Radio System (JPEO JTRS). All JTRS radios must use the SCA software operating environment as the basis to run the radio's waveforms
With over 3,000 AN/PRC-152(C) multiband handheld radios in service today and over 17,000 expected to be in service by summer 2007, the AN/PRC-152(C) is the first widely fielded tactical radio to receive SCA certification.
"We are very happy to see the Falcon III radio now SCA- and NSA-certified," said Mr. Bauman. "I am committed to removing JTRS market entry barriers and creating a competitive environment within the JTRS family. Products like the reprogrammable, SCA-compliant Falcon III will permit faster and cheaper means to upgrade the radio capabilities and implement crypto modernization. Our goal is to provide our Joint Warfighters with a family of interoperable, secure, affordable software-defined radios. I welcome Harris into the JTRS family."
"Fielding JTRS technology this early is a great win for the JTRS program and the government, and shows the true power of JTRS standards," said Mr. Dana Mehnert, president, Harris RF Communications Division. "The AN/PRC-152(C) was internally developed by Harris and implements key JTRS requirements: the SCA operating environment, and Type 1, software-programmable encryption. By leaving the doors open to competition, the government can significantly benefit from commercial technology and accelerate getting new capabilities to the warfighter faster."
The AN/PRC-152(C) and its associated vehicular adapter amplifier, the AN/VRC-110, are examples of commercial technology providing new capabilities to the warfighter. In service today, the AN/VRC-110 fits into a standard SINCGARS vehicular communications mount, but unlike the dedicated-use SINCGARS radio, the multimode AN/VRC-110 supports multiple waveforms: SINCGARS, Havequick I/II, VHF/UHF AM & FM, and MIL-STD-188-181B.
