Harris Receives National Security Agency Type-1 Certification for Wideband Rifleman Team Radio
- Type-1 certification covers highest levels of information assurance.
- Signals radio's readiness for delivery and fielding.
- Represents ongoing Harris leadership in commercially developed wideband radios.
Harris Corporation (NYSE:HRS) has received Type-1 National Security Agency certification for its Falcon® RF-330E-TR Wideband Rifleman Team Radio. The certification enables Harris to field the radios for secure voice and data communications up to the Secret level of information assurance classification.
The RF-330E is Harris' commercially developed, fully compliant radio for the Department of Defense (DoD) Rifleman Radio program. Designed with the dismounted warfighter in mind, the RF-330E is lighter and provides superior battery life and transmission range, making it more reliable and effective than other existing radios. The radio quickly connects warfighters into the tactical network for enhanced command and control and situational awareness through voice, data and position location information.
"The RF-330E is the best Rifleman Radio solution available to the U.S. Department of Defense," said George Helm, president, Department of Defense business, Harris RF Communications. "This radio was designed using our proven commercial business model and is part of our expanding product portfolio for addressing the DoD's network-centric requirements."
The RF-330E-TR offers a built-in display that provides the soldier with an intuitive visual interface to simplify the loading of radio configuration files, to validate network availability, and to monitor radio status with confidence.
Separately, the RF-330E has received two additional certifications that highlight the radio's readiness for fielding. The radio was certified for interoperability by the Joint Interoperability Test Command and for Software Communications Architecture compliance by the Joint Tactical Radio System Test and Evaluation Laboratory.
