Combat-Proven AN/PRC-154 Rifleman Radios Support Diverse U.S. Army Missions Worldwide

Stocks in this article: GD









SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., March 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The AN/PRC-154A Rifleman radios that connect soldiers to the Soldier's Network in combat can also support non-combat Army missions that include advise-and-assist, peacekeeping and security operations. For dismounted soldiers on patrol, the PRC-154A Rifleman radio, when combined with a smartphone, keeps soldiers connected with squad members and their leaders to talk, text and share information like marking potential hazards, keeping track of one another and providing an unprecedented level of situational awareness for both soldiers and leaders. This agile and adaptive networking capability is essential when the Army is deployed to locations where there is no communications infrastructure or where the infrastructure has been damaged or destroyed.

"The combat-proven Rifleman radios provide vital voice, position information and data communications that keep soldiers connected and informed across vast distances and challenging terrain," said Chris Marzilli, president of General Dynamics C4 Systems. "Whether soldiers are defending the nation, helping to build schools in Afghanistan or delivering water and medical supplies following a disaster, the Rifleman radio is a critical component to a successful mission."

The PRC-154A Rifleman radio and the two-channel AN/PRC-155 Manpack radio are 'smart,' secure networking radios that make it easier for soldiers to adapt quickly to task changes during a mission. Keeping the Soldier's Network flexible, with secure network connectivity up the chain of command via the Warfighter Information Network – Tactical Increment 2, soldiers and their commanders are connected locally, regionally and even globally using satellite communications.

General Dynamics C4 Systems has delivered more than 21,000 PRC-154A Rifleman radios to the Army. Rifleman radios, which provide voice communication down to the individual soldier, are an indispensable part of the Army's Capability Set (CS) 13 and 14, the first fully integrated suite of network communications equipment that spans an entire Brigade Combat Team.
