Harris Corporation Successfully Tests Mid-Tier Networking Vehicle Radio With U.S. Government Wideband Networking Waveform

Harris Corporation (NYSE:HRS), an international communications and information technology company, has successfully completed government tests of its proposed solution for the U.S. Army Mid-Tier Networking Vehicle Radio (MNVR) program. The tests took place at the Space and Navy Warfare Command Systems Center-Atlantic and the U.S. Army’s Fort Huachuca in Arizona.

Harris delivered data messages via its MNVR radio systems using the Wideband Networking Waveform (WNW) developed by U.S. Department of Defense. Waveforms serve as software applications that provide functionality for today’s advanced software-defined radios. WNW, developed by the U.S. Department of Defense Joint Tactical Networking Center, serves as a building block in the fielding of joint tactical wideband communications across Army Brigade Combat Teams.

Harris successfully communicated as required at rates of 2 megabits per second between separate Harris MNVR systems and with other radios, such as the Ground Mobile Radio (AN-VRC-107). The Harris solution utilized WNW over the “L-Band’’ frequency range, set aside by the DoD to provide greater spectrum for wideband data communications.

“Harris is expanding its lead in deploying NSA Type-1 certified radios using open-standard government wideband waveforms,’’ said George Helm, president, Department of Defense business, Harris RF Communications. “We were instrumental in the rollout and deployment of the Soldier Radio Waveform, and are well on our way to repeating this success with WNW. Harris has demonstrated that it is the low-risk solution for MNVR.’’

The Harris MNVR system leverages the company’s internal research and development investments in wideband tactical networking. Harris has deployed more than 40,000 Falcon III AN/PRC-117G and AN/PRC-152A manpack and handheld wideband tactical radio systems to all branches of the U.S. Department of Defense as well as allied forces in more than 15 countries.
