Harris Falcon III® Manpack Gains NSA Type-1 Certification

Harris Corporation (NYSE:HRS) has received National Security Agency (NSA) Type-1 certification for the Harris Falcon III® RF-300H wideband HF manpack radio system.

The Type-1 certification enables transmission of classified images, maps and other large data files from beyond-line-of-sight environments in a compact, lightweight package. The Harris RF-300H manpack delivers data up to 10 times faster and is 20 percent smaller and lighter than previous radios. The unit also provides a reliable alternative to satellite communications for beyond line-of-sight voice and data communications.

This RF-300H NSA certification allows us to continue providing leading-edge secure communications technology to the warfighter who needs to be prepared for any situation,” said Chris Young, president, Harris Communication Systems.
