Soldier's Network Update: US Army Capability Set 14 to Include AN/PRC-155 Manpack Tactical Radios

The two-channel AN/PRC-155 Manpack tactical networking radios will be included in U.S. Army's Capability Set (CS) 14, an integrated package of radios, satellite systems, software applications, smartphone-like devices and other network components.

Units scheduled to receive CS 14 include organizations within the 101st Air Assault Division, Fort Campbell, Ky. The two-channel PRC-155 Manpack networking radio will connect soldiers and commanders to the Soldier's Network, which includes the Warfighter Information Network-Tactical (WIN-T) and other vital mission command on-the-move capabilities.

"The two-channel PRC-155 Manpack operates on multiple, government-owned waveforms to simultaneously connect soldiers on foot, in vehicles, in aircraft and helicopters to the Soldier's Network.

"The radio is a priority component of the Army's network modernization plan, and essential to CS 14," said Chris Marzilli, president of General Dynamics C4 Systems.

"Soldiers and commanders serving in Afghanistan, Africa, Korea or other tactical locations now have a secure mobile, broadband communications network with mission command on-the-move so wherever they go, the network is right there, just like the network supporting a civilian's smartphone."

Using Low Rate Initial Production (LRIP) contracts since 2011, the Army has been able to maintain vital communications capabilities of the Soldier's Network for soldiers provisioned with CS 13 and 14.

The industry team of General Dynamics and Rockwell Collins has completed the on time delivery of more than 3,400 two-channel Manpack radios in support of Army fielding requirements.

When connected to WIN-T, the PRC-155 Manpack and PRC-154/154A radios allow dispersed forces to talk, text, share images and collaborate wherever they serve worldwide.

The PRC-155 Manpack also bridges networks - legacy to future, lower to upper echelons - allowing everyone from the command center to the soldier on the edge of the battlefield to stay connected.
