Harris Corporation's new Falcon III RF-300H wideband HF manpack radio system has received certification from the U.S. National Security Agency.
The NSA Type-1 certification allows the system to transmit classified images, maps and other data files from beyond-line-of-sight environments, the company announced Monday.
"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," Chris Young, president of Harris Communication Systems, said in a press release.
Harris said its RF-300H system is 20 percent smaller and lighter than the company's previous radios. It also can transmit data as much as 10 times faster than previous systems and is a reliable alternative to satellite communications for beyond line-of-sight communications.
