The L3Harris AN/PRC-117G delivers breakthrough wideband data speed and legacy narrowband performance in a form factor 30% smaller and 35% lighter than any other currently in field. The manpack is also the industry’s first and only tactical radio with NINE Suite B encryption. This frees sovereign nations to securely interoperate with U.S., NATO and regional tactical partners and eliminates the time and cost of maintaining two separate radio systems.
MUOS-ready with Narrowband SATCOM Networking
The L3Harris Multiband Networking Manpack Radio is software defined, supporting in-field upgrades as new capabilities emerge. Equipped with MUOS-ready hardware, the 117G extends communications Beyond-Line-Of-Sight (BLOS) with abilities for simultaneous SATCOM voice and data transmission. When paired with L3Harris RF-7800B Broadband Global Area Network terminals, the manpack delivers automatic range extension of SATCOM BLOS communications along with Internet and remote private network access.
Advanced multiband network performance
Situational awareness is enhanced by an embedded SAASM GPS receiver. Voice and data are secure up to TOP SECRET through the Sierra™ II encryption module, which also supports all JTRS COMSEC and TRANSEC requirements.
