Harris’ RF-300H radio earns NSA certification
Harris Corporation has received National Security Agency (NSA) Type-1 certification for its Falcon III RF-300H wideband HF manpack radio system, the company announced on 13 March.
The system delivers data up to ten times faster and is 20 percent smaller and lighter than previous radios. It also provides an alternative to satellite communications for beyond line-of-sight voice and data communications.
The Type-1 certification enables transmission of classified images, maps and other large data files from beyond-line-of-sight environments in a compact, lightweight package.
Chris Young, president, Harris Communication Systems, said: 'This RF-300H NSA certification allows us to continue providing leading-edge secure communications technology to the warfighter who needs to be prepared for any situation.'
