Tests Show Harris Wideband Rifleman Team Radio Meets/Exceeds Program Requirements

Harris Corporation’s new Falcon ® RF-330E-TR Wideband Rifleman Team Radio meets, and in many cases, exceeds the requirements for the Rifleman Radio Program, recent independent tests show. The requirements are defined by the Production Requirement Documents for the program.

Harris’ Falcon ® RF-330E-TR was tested by the Network Battle Lab for Experimentation (NBL) at the Cyber Center of Excellence in accordance with a Commercial Testing Agreement signed by the two organizations. The testing was conducted by personnel assigned to the NBL and by soldiers from the 15th Regimental Signal Brigade.

“The results validate the RF-330E-TR’s superior performance in range, cold start network formation, and ease of use both for mission planning and in-mission situational awareness,” said George Helm, president, Department of Defense business, Harris RF Communications. “Partnering with NBL provides Harris with an independent, real-user view on the usability and performance of our products in an actual field environment. The feedback we receive is critical to allow us to continuously improve the operational effectiveness of our new products.”

The RF-330E is a lightweight, wideband, networked radio that connects front-line soldiers to the tactical internet. It facilitates command and control by providing voice, data, and location information throughout tactical networks. Harris will showcase the radio at the 2014 Association of the United States Army conference Oct. 13 – Oct. 15 in Washington, D.C.
