RF-7800I components(click to view full) Harris Corporation in Rochester, NY received a $13.5 million order to provide the U.S. Air Force with vehicular radios and a digital tactical intercom system for their Hummers. The USAF’s up-armored HMMWV is the M1116. The Air Force is buying Harris’ Falcon III AN/VRC-110 multiband, multimode radios, along with the RF-7800I tactical intercom system. What are these systems, and what do they do? The RF-7800I’s modules provide interoperable in-vehicle voice and data connectivity among crew members, while also creating a network backbone that centralizes access to and control of communication systems in the vehicle – including the AN/VRC-110. The RF-7800I’s capabilities allows crew members to communicate with dismounted troops, other vehicles, and command centers via high frequency (HF), very high frequency (VHF), and ultra high frequency (UHF), multiband and broadband global area network (BGAN) satellite communications technology. The AN/VRC-110 offers users a range of capabilities, such as single channel ground and airborne radio system (SINCGARS) interoperability, APCO P25, UHF ground-to-ground line-of-sight communications, close-air support and programmable encryption. The Joint Tactical Radio System-compliant AN/PRC-152 (C) is the hand-held transceiver for the AN/VRC-110 system. Harris release | AN/VRC-110 Fact Sheet [PDF] | Harris RF-7800I brochure [PDF].
