MELBOURNE, Fla., July 25 (UPI) -- The U.S. National Security Agency has given Harris Corp. Type-1 certification for use of the Soldier Radio Waveform in its Falcon III AN/PRC-117G radios.

SRW was developed by the U.S. Department of Defense's Joint Tactical Radio System program for enhanced voice, data and mobile ad-hoc networking capabilities.

Harris said the certification ushers in the first fielding of Type-1 radios using SRW.

"Harris is proud to deliver the first Type-1 certified implementation of the JTRS Soldier Radio Waveform," said Dana Mehnert, group president, Harris RF Communications.

"This is a major investment that underscores our ongoing commitment to open-standard wideband waveforms that enable networking at the tactical edge.

"SRW's availability in the Harris AN/PRC-117G broadens the radio's interoperability with current radios and ensures compatibility with future radio platforms operating JTRS waveforms."

Harris said it used its own funds to port, integrate and validate SRW for fielding through the JTRS program Enterprise Business Model, which encourages companies to invest their own capital to develop next-generation solutions in tactical communications using JTRS waveform software.
