13, 2006: Harris continues to expand the envelope of its latest
Falcon family member – the AN/PRC-152(C) Falcon III radio.
Following the recent SCA certification Harris
Corporation demonstrated a new application of a software-programmable
waveform that enables this software configurable radio to communicate
between military, national guards and reserve units and commercially
available APCO P25-based radios, commonly used with law enforcement,
FBI, FEMA and other first responders.
waveform will allow communications interoperability among military
users, civil authorities, and first responders. The radio offers
interoperability with a wide range of military radios, including
Type-1 secured SINCGARS, Havequick II, HPW, VHF/UHF, and MIL-STD-188-
181B UHF SATCOM communications capabilities. The production
version of the APCO P25 waveform will be available by summer
2007. The system's Software Communications
Architecture (SCA) was recently and certified by the Joint Tactical
Radio System Test and Evaluation Laboratory (JPEO JTEL) to be
compatible with the SCA standard governing all future JTRS
radio's waveforms. This certification ensures compatibility
with future JTRS radios which will augment, and later replace
all current military combat net radios.
