The U.S. Army has recertified Harris Corporation’s AN/ARC-201D airborne radio, validating that the radios are airworthy for use in Army helicopters. The radios will be produced at Harris’ state-of-the-art Rochester, New York, facility.
Harris moved production to the company’s Jefferson Road Operations Center manufacturing facility in Rochester. The U.S. Army’s Program Executive Office provided the Airworthiness Release after completing airworthiness testing of radios that had been modified to address component obsolescence.
With more than 7,000 radios fielded, the ARC-201D is a workhorse communication system for Army rotorcraft. It is an important addition to Harris’ airborne radio portfolio, providing reliable SINCGARS communications in even the most complex and demanding configurations.
Harris offers a full suite of airborne radios for both manned and unmanned aircraft that communicate seamlessly with the company’s advanced ground radios, which are used extensively by the U.S. Department of Defense and U.S. allies around the world.
“Our operations team is prepared to meet the U.S. Army’s demand for ARC-201D radios over the next decade. Our employees at our state-of-the-art manufacturing facility are committed to delivering best-in-class products to our customers,” said Chris Young, President, Harris Communication Systems.
