L3Harris Technologies (NYSE:LHX) has received a $50 million follow-on delivery order for Falcon III AN/PRC-160 HF radios and related equipment from the U.S. Marine Corps as part of its High Frequency Radio II modernization program. The order is part of the Navy Portable Radio Program five-year IDIQ contract received in 2017.
The Marine Corps selected the AN/PRC-160 to replace legacy L3Harris HF radios. The AN/PRC-160 is a modern solution for beyond-line-of-sight communications in a satellite-denied environment. It is the smallest, lightest and fastest wideband HF manpack available – providing 10X throughput over legacy systems.
The wideband system also is the world’s only HF manpack meeting new NSA crypto-modernization standards. The system’s software-defined architecture allows encryption updates, ensuring mission-critical information stays secure. It also enables command and control in a degraded environment and long-range voice and data with interoperability across U.S. and Coalition forces.
“The AN/PRC-160 delivers the security and resilience the Marine Corps needs for its tactical radio modernization programs, while providing unmatched capability for Marines on the battlefield,” said Dana Mehnert, President, Communication Systems, L3Harris. “These radios provide high-speed, long-range HF communications that meet the Marine Corps’ demanding program of record requirements.”
