Harris' Smallest, Lightest and Fastest Wideband Manpack Radio System (This Falcon Flies)

The RF-300H is the market’s only standalone solution for Beyond-Line-Of-Sight communications in the absence of satellite. This wideband system is the only HF manpack meeting new NSA crypto-modernization standards. 

They now offer the smallest, lightest and fastest wideband manpack radio that is fully backwards compatible with the Harris Falcon II HF product line, with more than 100,000 radio units deployed worldwide. 

Harris Corporation (NYSE:HRS) revealed the Falcon III® RF-300H which dramatically improves 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) and delivers data up to 10 times faster in a package that is 20 percent smaller and lighter.  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). 

Chris Young, president, Harris Communication Systems stated that the RF-300H delivers an advanced solution for warfighters facing today’s complex environment, and provides more security and enhanced wideband HF than any other radio in the marketplace.
