Harris Corporation launches new RF-300H wideband manpack radio system

Harris Corporation of Melbourne, FL announced on February 21 that it has introduced the Falcon III® RF-300H, the world’s smallest, lightest and fastest wideband manpack radio. The RF-300H dramatically improves HF tactical communications by transmitting high-level security images, maps and other large data files from beyond-line-of-sight environments in a compact, lightweight package.

The RF-300H manpack from Harris, the leading provider of HF tactical communications, replaces the US Type 1 AN/PRC-150(C) – delivering data up to 10 times faster in a package that is 20 percent smaller and lighter. The RF-300H is fully backwards compatible with the Harris Falcon II HF product line, with more than 100,000 radio units deployed worldwide. It provides a reliable alternative to satellite communications for beyond line-of-sight voice and data communications and also features either a commercial GPS or a Selective Availability Anti-Spoofing Module (SAASM).

“The new Harris RF-300H manpack radio provides more security and enhanced wideband HF than any other radio in the marketplace,” said Chris Young, president, Harris Communication Systems. “The RF-300H delivers an advanced solution for warfighters facing today’s complex environment.”
