US Army Orders 1,000 New L3Harris Falcon IV Compact Team Radios to Enhance Tactical Communications

  • Small, light and easy to use radio for tactical operators down to the squad level
  • Connects tactical-level information to command to support the Army's Integrated Tactical Network
  • Allows infantry teams to spread farther out on battlefield while still staying connected

The U.S. Army has ordered 1,000 new L3Harris Technologies (NYSE:LHX) Falcon® IV AN/PRC-171 Compact Team Radios to ensure soldiers at any tactical level can transmit crucial information to command teams across an integrated network.

The Army placed its first delivery order of the Compact Team Radio, an easy-to-use and ruggedized solution leveraging robust technologies from fielded and emerging company products. This affordable radio allows voice and sensor data from all users to be shared in true Joint All-Domain Command and Control fashion, supporting the Army's connected-network vision.

“The delivery of these single-channel radios furthers L3Harris’ support of the U.S. Army’s new Integrated Tactical Network by enabling all tactical operators to share situational awareness information across the entire network,” said Bryant Henson, President, Tactical Communications, L3Harris. “These radios will field alongside our HMS Manpack and Leader Radios at the squad level—extending the network and warfighter effectiveness to all soldiers.”

The AN/PRC-171 offers more than 20 hours of continuous and reliable voice and data communications on a single battery and can seamlessly interface with other L3Harris solutions, including the Enhanced Night Vision—Binocular (ENVG-B). The radio fully supports the Army’s unified network strategy, offering a broad portfolio of waveforms that can survive through disadvantaged line-of-sight, with flexibility to upgrade waveforms as new technology emerges.

The radio’s accessories are interchangeable with the rest of the L3Harris Falcon family of radios and supported with in-field upgrades to emerging wideband and narrowband resilient waveforms.
