Feb. 22 (UPI) -- A new lightweight wideband manpack radio with enhanced data rates has been launched by the Harris Corporation.
The system is designated the Falcon III RF-300H and Harris says it dramatically improves high-frequency tactical communications by transmitting high-level security images, maps and other large data files from beyond-line-of-sight environments in a compact, lightweight package.
"The new Harris RF-300H manpack radio provides more security and enhanced wideband HF than any other radio in the marketplace," said Chris Young, president, Harris Communication Systems. "The RF-300H delivers an advanced solution for warfighters facing today's complex environment."
Harris said the new equipment replaces its U.S. Type 1 AN/PRC-150(C) radios, delivering data up to 10 times faster in a package that is 20 percent smaller and lighter. The radio is backwards compatible with the Harris Falcon II HF product line and comes with either a commercial GPS or a Selective Availability Anti-Spoofing Module.
