Harris expands RF-7800T ISR capabilities
Harris Corporation is expanding the capabilities of its RF-7800T Situational Awareness Video Receiver (SAVR) with the Small Unmanned Aerial Systems Digital Data Link (SUAS-DDL) waveform. According to the company the addition will address growing requirements for secure wireless digital intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance video at the tactical edge.
With SUAS-DDL, the RF-7800T is now able to receive Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) video feeds from multiple small Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) simultaneously.
According to Harris, SUAS-DDL, a Department of Defense standard waveform, provides enhanced interoperability between small UAS in the air and video receivers and control stations on the ground. The characteristics of the waveform allow multiple UAS to transmit video on the same frequency. This enables warfighters to monitor intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) video streams covering a wider geographic area, leading to enhanced command and control and operational decision-making.
The multiband RF-7800T SAVR delivers real-time video feeds from cameras on aircraft or UAS platforms to ground forces. Designed for the dismounted warfighter as well as for fixed and vehicular applications, the small, lightweight RF-7800T enables feeds to be viewed outside the TOC and while personnel are on the move. As a member of the combat-proven Falcon III family of radios, the RF-7800T leverages the Falcon III SCA architecture, allowing the product to remain on the cusp of emerging data link standards through software upgrades. Video feeds from the RF-7800T are easily disseminated over Falcon III radio networks.
