WASHINGTON, May 15 (UPI) -- A new U.S. combat radio with greater coverage area and enhanced audio clarity for intra-squad communications has been introduced by Motorola Solutions Inc.

The SRX 2200 combat radio is the next-generation system of the company's AN/PRC-153 Integrated Intra-Squad Radio. Motorola said it is already deployed with the U.S. Marines Corps and is compatible with all Motorola mission-critical radio systems.

"The SRX 2200 Combat Radio is an easy-to-use, rugged device that was designed specifically for military operations," said Paul Mueller, vice president, U.S. Federal Government Markets Division, Motorola Solutions, Inc.

"The SRX 2200 has a full set of tactical voice and data capabilities, including encrypted voice and texting, which makes it an ideal grab-and-go radio for squads in distributed operations as well as for on-base personnel."

The radio system features an 80 dB receiver, is built on commercial-off-the-shelf solutions and meets military and governments standards for encryption and waveform.

"For more than 80 years, Motorola Solutions has provided the U.S. government with field-tested communications equipment that helps troops stay safe and successful, wherever the mission takes them," said Brenda Herold, corporate vice president, Subscribers and Infrastructure, Motorola Solutions, Inc.

"The SRX 2200 is based on Motorola's APX line of advanced portable radios and provides powerful performance in a COTS solution that is an affordable alternative to purpose-built radios."
