Harris Corporation Receives National Security Agency Type-1 Certification for Wideband Rifleman Team Radio
MELBOURNE, Fla. & ROCHESTER, N.Y. --(Business Wire)--
Harris Corporation (News - Alert) (NYSE:HRS) has received Type-1 National Security
Agency certification for its Falcon® RF-330E-TR Wideband
Rifleman Team Radio. The certification enables Harris to field the
radios for secure voice and data communications up to the Secret level
of information assurance classification.
The RF-330E is Harris' commercially developed, fully compliant radio for
the Department of Defense (DoD) Rifleman Radio program. Designed with
the dismounted warfighter in mind, the RF-330E is lighter and provides
superior battery life and transmission range, making it more reliable
and effective than other existing radios. The radio quickly connects
warfighters into the tactical network for enhanced command and control
and situational awareness through voice, data and position location
"The RF-330E is the best Rifleman Radio solution available to the U.S.
Department of Defense," said George Helm, president, Department of
Defense business, Harris RF Communications. "This radio was designed
using our proven commercial business model and is part of our expanding
product portfolio for adressing the DoD's network-centric requirements."
The RF-330E-TR offers a built-in display that provides the soldier with
an intuitive visual interface to simplify the loading of radio
configuration files, to validate network availability, and to monitor
radio status with confidence.
Separately, the RF-330E has received two additional certifications that
highlight the radio's readiness for fielding. The radio was certified
for interoperability by the Joint Interoperability Test Command and for
Software Communications Architecture compliance by the Joint Tactical
Radio System Test and Evaluation Laboratory.
