Harris Corporation has introduced the RF-7800M-MP, a multiband, high-capacity tactical radio that enhances the ability of military personnel to communicate at high data rates while on the move. The RF-7800M-MP is the newest addition to a family of Harris tactical radio products designed to broaden access to battlefield networking.
The RF-7800M-MP provides secure voice and high-speed networked data services with up to 20 watts of output power over an extended frequency range of 30 MHz to 2 GHz. Designed for flexibility, the single-channel radio runs both narrowband and wideband waveforms off a single military battery, lightening the soldier's load on the battlefield. A vehicular amplifier adapter, the RF-7800M-VA, is available to boost power to 50 watts.
The initial release of the RF-7800M-MP will include the Harris Advanced Networking Wideband Waveform (ANW2) for mobile ad-hoc networking. The
ANW2 networking waveform provides secure IP data to the tactical Internet at on-air rates up to 10 Mbps. The radio's Software Communications Architecture (version 2.2) enables the loading of future waveforms and ensures software upgradeability. With 10 times the processing power of currently fielded tactical radios, the RF-7800M-MP utilizes embedded 256-bit AES encryption and provides simultaneous IP data, situational awareness, and CNR voice.
The RF-7800M-MP is part of a new family of products in the Falcon(R) line of radios designed for network-centric warfare, including the previously announced RF-7800W Broadband Ethernet Radio and the RF-7800S Secure Personal Radio.
