Harris Corporation Awarded U.S. Army Order for Side Falcon Soldier Radio Waveform Appliqué Systems
Harris Corporation (NYSE: HRS) has received an initial order to provide the U.S. Army with Harris Side Falcon (SRW-SF) Soldier Radio Waveform appliqué systems. The order, via the GSA, FAS Assisted Acquisition Services, is in support of the Army's Network Integration Evaluations (NIE) at White Sands Missile Range.
The Harris Side Falcon integrates the Falcon III® AN/PRC-152A handheld radio with a small-form factor wideband power amplifier for increased range and reliability. Side Falcon systems will be installed in vehicles to address Army requirements for a vehicular single-channel radio that operates the JTRS Soldier Radio Waveform. The appliqués will be deployed to move voice and data seamlessly between dismounted soldiers, their command centers and higher headquarters.
The Harris Side Falcon supports SRW as well as the Harris Adaptive Networking Wideband Waveform (ANW2.) In addition, Side Falcon also operates SINCGARS, VHF/UHF Line-of-Sight, HaveQuick, IW for tactical satellite communications and other combat net radio waveforms, making it fully interoperable with existing DoD radios — providing the Army with maximum flexibility in combat.
