The five-channel vehicle communication systems leverage Harris' advanced wideband tactical radio and systems integration capabilities to provide voice and data across the mission area. The systems include Harris' Falcon III® AN/PRC-117G multiband manpack radios, the RF-7800I advanced vehicle intercom system and a Unity® XG-100M full-spectrum multiband mobile radio. The AN/PRC-117G is the first and only widely deployed tactical wideband networking radio that offers secure interoperability with the broad suite of U.S. ground, airborne and satellite based communication assets. Harris also will provide installation, training and ongoing service and support.

"This system highlights Harris' unique ability to integrate tactical and land mobile radio systems that bridge the needs of tactical and civilian responders," said George Helm, president, Department of Defense Business, Harris RF Communications. "The system will allow the ANG to quickly respond to calls for assistance, establish communications, and coordinate missions with local authorities."

The United States Air National Guard is part of the state National Guard and is divided up into units stationed in each of the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and three U.S. territories. The ANG has about 110,000 men and women in service. Like the US Air Force Reserve Command (AFRC), the ANG is often described as a "reserve" force of "part-time airmen," although the demands of maintaining modern aircraft mean that many AFRC and ANG members work full-time.
