Certification of Harris Corporation manpack radio

A National Security Agency (NSA) Type-1 certification has been given to Harris Corporation for one of its radio systems.

The Type-1 certification of the Harris Falcon III RF-300H wideband HF manpack enables transmission of classified images, maps and other large data files from beyond-line-of-sight environments in a compact, lightweight package.

“This RF-300H NSA certification allows us to continue providing leading-edge secure communications technology to the warfighter who needs to be prepared for any situation,” said Chris Young, president, Harris Communication Systems.

The manpack delivers data up to 10 times faster and is 20% smaller and lighter than previous radios. It also provides a reliable alternative to satellite communications for beyond-line-of-sight voice and data communications.
