The AN/USC-61(C) from General Dynamics is a Software-Defined Digital Modular Radio (DMR) that operates from 2 MHz to 2 GHz. It has four full-duplex channels with multiple waveforms and multi-level information security for voice and data communications from the core of the network to the tactical edge. The radio is built using open architecture standards to provide improved functionality and interoperability by including waveforms and advanced network connectivity, such as the Integrated Waveform and advanced network connectivity with the Mobile User Objective System (MUOS) waveforms. Additionally, system-wide software applications such as Dynamic Routing and Virtual Channel Exploitation extend channel capacity without additional hardware.
The AN/USC-61(C) software defined radio provides complete VHF/UHF Line-of-Sight and HF/UHF Beyond Line-of-Sight waveform capability. It is certified to pass secure voice and data at Multiple Independent Levels of Security (MILS) over HF, VHF, UHF, and SATCOM channels – and meets all the stringent environmental, EMI and performance requirements for use on U.S. Fleets and five eye countries. This radio has full qualification for U.S. Navy and U.S. Coast Guard shipboard environments. It is available in an enclosure that measures 44.45 x 48.90 x 55.90 cm and requires an AC supply from 100 to 140 V.
