L3Harris Technologies has introduced its compact team radio during AUSA Now 2020, the Association of the United States Army’s (AUSA) annual meeting and expedition which was held virtually this past week.
The small form factor, single-channel radio delivers robust voice and data capabilities for missions at the edge of the network including Nett Warrior and Integrated Visual Augmentation System. Sharing common accessories with the AN/PRC-163 Leader Radio and implementing a simple user interface reduce the logistics trail while increasing warfighter agility.
“The U.S. Army asked for a single-channel wideband MANET (Mobile Ad hoc Network) radio and L3Harris built a product in less than one year that checks all the boxes and exceeds our customer’s requirements,” said Dana Mehnert, President, Communication Systems, L3Harris.
This versatile, low-SWaP solution is engineered to provide a simple to use communications platform capable of operating in multi-domain challenges of dismounted, vehicular, maritime and airborne missions.
