ROCHESTER, N.Y. Harris Corp. has obtained National Security Agency (NSA) Type-1 certification for its Falcon III RF-300H wideband high-frequency (HF) manpack radio system. With the Type-1 NSA certification, Harris is allowed to perform transmission of classified images, maps, and other large data files from beyond-line-of-sight environments with the Falcon III.

For the in-field warfighter, the manpack radio system offers alternative to interceptable satellite communications for beyond line-of-sight voice and data communications. According to the company, the data speeds for the software-defined radio (SDR) enable the warfighter to share higher-speed communications and more sophisticated intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) through long-haul connectivity.
