22nd November 2016 - 14:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Harris Corporation’s Falcon III AN/PRC-117G Multiband Networking Manpack Radio has been cleared to run the Mobile User Objective System (MUOS) waveform following Type-1 National Security Agency (NSA) certification.

The certification allows secure voice and data communications on the AN/PRC-117G using the MUOS waveform.

MUOS is the next-generation US Department of Defense military communications system for delivering mobile satellite connectivity through tactical radios. 

Harris has delivered more than 30,000 MUOS-capable AN/PRC-117G tactical radios which will be able to deliver the enhanced capability to warfighters with a software upgrade, a diplexer and an antenna kit. 

Chris Young, president, Harris Communication Systems, said: ‘This NSA certification for the MUOS-enabled AN/PRC-117G allows us to continue providing value and leading-edge communications technology to the warfighter on the battlefield.’
