Harris Launches Smaller and Lighter Wideband Manpack Radio System

Harris Corporation has introduced the new Falcon III® RF-300H, said to be the world’s smallest, lightest and fastest wideband manpack radio. It is considered to improve HF tactical communications by transmitting high-level security images, maps and other large data files from beyond-line-of-sight environments in a compact, lightweight package.

The RF-300H manpack from Harris, replaces the US Type 1 AN/PRC-150(C) - delivering data up to 10 times faster in a package that is 20 percent smaller and lighter. It is fully backwards compatible with the Harris Falcon II HF product line, which has more than 100,000 radio units deployed worldwide. It provides a reliable alternative to satellite communications for beyond line-of-sight voice and data communications and also features either a commercial GPS or a Selective Availability Anti-Spoofing Module (SAASM).
