Harris Demos P25 Waveform for Military Radio (12/13)
Wednesday, December 13, 2006 | Comments
Harris demonstrated a new software-programmable waveform that enables its Falcon III AN/PRC-152(C) to interoperate with commercially available Project 25 (P25)-based radios. This waveform allows communications interoperability among military users, civil authorities, and first responders, Harris officials said. The AN/PRC-152 will be the first tactical radio to use the P25 waveform, according to Harris. The production version of the APCO P25 waveform will be available by summer 2007 in new AN/PRC-152(C) radios or as an optional software upgrade for fielded units. The AN/PRC-152 radio, currently deployed by the U.S. military, provides Type-1 secured SINCGARS, Havequick II, HPW, VHF/UHF, and Mil-Std-188-181B UHF satellite communications capabilities. It is a software communications architecture (SCA)-based, software-defined radio (SDR) with an optional embedded GPS module. The radio is also part of the AN/VRC-110 system used by U.S. forces to provide vehicular communications. "The addition of the APCO P25 waveform to tactical radios enables military and agency users, including the National Guard and Reserves, the FBI, and FEMA, to communicate with first responders," said Andy Adams, vice president of product line management for Harris RF Communications.
