WAYNE, N.J., Oct. 5 (UPI) -- A new line of networking radios designed for U.S. military use has been launched by BAE Systems.

Called the Phoenix-SC, the radios are jam-resistant and operate the Wideband Networking Waveform and the Soldier Radio Waveform for multiple configuration use and are interoperable with other joint tactical radio systems already in use.

"The Phoenix family of radios offers the most complete MNVR solution for battlefield communications," said Joseph Senftle, vice president and general manager of Communications and Control Solutions at BAE Systems.

"With decades of experience in software-defined radio technology, BAE Systems developed the Phoenix radios with affordability, reduced size, weight, and power, as well as robust anti-jam capabilities, as top priorities."

BAE said the Phoenix was produced in response to a U.S. Army request for a non-developmental, mid-tier networking vehicular radio system meets or exceeds Army specifications.
