Falcon III AN/PRC-152(click to view larger) Harris Corp.’s RF Communications Division in Rochester, NY received orders totaling $119 million to supply Joint Tactical Radio System (JTRS)-approved Falcon III AN/PRC-152-C handheld radios with the RF-5980-SA001 vehicle amplifier adapters for the Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) all-terrain vehicle (M-ATV). The AN/PRC-152 [pdf] provides M-ATV users with multiband Single Channel Ground and Airborne Radio System (SINCGARS) and Demand Assigned Multiple Access (DAMA) satellite communications interoperability in the 30-512 MHz frequency bands… AN/PRC-152 SINCGARS vehicle systems are designed to be integrated with the standard SINCGARS shock mount (MT-6532/VRC) using the Harris SINCGARS Interface Module (SIM). By using the mounting developed for the AN/PRC-119 and related systems, AN/PRC-152 SINCGARS vehicle systems are capable of integration with a variety of related peripherals. In addition to SINCGARS capabilities, Falcon III radios provide ultra-high frequency (UHF) ground-to-ground line-of-sight communications, close-air support, and tactical satellite communications. The radios also support programmable encryption, and software upgrades using the JTRS software communication architecture. Harris’ Falcon family of software-defined tactical radio systems encompasses manpack, handheld and vehicular applications.
