US Army receives eighth delivery of AN/PRC-162 ground radios

28th April 2020 - 10:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The US Army has received its eighth delivery of the AN/PRC-162 ground radio from Collins Aerospace for its Handheld, Manpack and Small Form Fit (HMS) programme.

The AN/PRC-162 has two independent channels across all frequencies and allows the US Army to maintain interoperability with legacy waveforms while also using new waveforms such as Trellisware’s TSM and the Warrior Robust Enhanced Network (WREN).

The radio is available for dismounted and vehicle-mounted use and can be connected to an optional 50W high-power amplifier.

Ryan Bunge, VP and general manager of communication, navigation and guidance solutions at Collins Aerospace, said: ‘Our ground radio gives war fighters access to the most advanced networked communication technology available, ultimately leading to improved situational awareness and mission success.’

This order was placed as part of a $12.7 billion ceiling contract in 2016, which includes orders until March 2026.
