New Harris Corporation Power Amplifier Extends Applications For Wideband Networks

Stocks in this article: HRS

Harris Corporation (NYSE:HRS), an international communications and information technology company, has introduced a new power amplifier that provides greater capacity, efficiency and range to wideband tactical networking.

Harris’ new UL-Band power amplifier combines with the Falcon III® AN/PRC-117G to provide continuous UHF and L-Band frequency coverage from 225 MHz to 2 GHz. The Department of Defense concentrates data transmission in the 225 to 450 MHz range, reducing the spectrum amount available in this frequency band. The extended frequency coverage provided by the new power amplifier allows users operating in vehicles to take advantage of the additional spectrum available up to 2 GHz to send and receive large data files, including video. The power amplifier is compatible with legacy narrowband waveforms as well as various wideband waveforms such as the Wideband Networking Waveform, Soldier Radio Waveform, Mobile User Objective System and Adaptive Networking Wideband Waveform.

The UL-Band amplifier will serve as an accessory to the Falcon III ® AN/PRC-117G and offers the same size, weight and power profile as the existing VHF/UHF amplifier. Harris successfully operated the new power amplifier on military vehicles at the recently completed U.S. Army Network Integration Evaluation (NIE).

“Our UL-Band power amplifier provided soldiers at the NIE with significant performance enhancements in the wideband network. In particular, the amplifier enabled our solution to meet or exceed requirements for voice and data in range, throughput, security and reliability,’’ said George Helm, president, Department of Defense business, Harris RF Communications. “The UL-Band amplifier provides increased overall capacity and offers the Army a robust Wideband Networking Waveform-based solution.’’

The AN/PRC-117G is the world’s most widely fielded JTRS-Certified radio, combining line-of-sight, beyond-line-of-sight and wideband communications capabilities in a single lightweight package. The radio provides enhanced situational awareness of the battlefield by connecting warfighters to the tactical Internet and has been vetted in four consecutive Army NIE events.
