PRC-155 radio

The US Army will include General Dynamics (GD) AN/PRC-155 radios in capability set (CS) 14 to connect soldiers and commanders to the soldier’s network that includes the warfighter information network-tactical (WIN-T) and other vital mission command on-the-move capabilities.

An integrated package of radios, satellite systems, software applications, smartphone-like devices and other network components, the CS 14 is scheduled to be delivered to units within the 101st Air Assault Division, Fort Bragg, North Carolina, US.

General Dynamics C4 Systems president Chris Marzilli said the two-channel PRC-155 manpack radio operates on multiple, government-owned waveforms to simultaneously connect soldiers on foot, in vehicles, in aircraft and helicopters to the soldier’s network.

"The radio is a priority component of the Army’s network modernization plan, and essential to CS 14," Marzilli said.

"Soldiers and commanders serving in Afghanistan, Africa, Korea or other tactical locations now have a secure mobile, broadband communications network with mission command on-the-move so wherever they go, the network is right there, just like the network supporting a civilian’s smartphone."

The AN/PRC-154 is a two-channel manpack radio designed to provide line-of-sight (LOS) and beyond-line-of-sight (BLOS), high-bandwidth waveforms for on-the-move voice, sensor, data and position-location capabilities to dismounted troops or those in vehicles during combat.

"The radio is a priority component of the Army’s network modernization plan, and essential to CS 14."

Certified by the National Security Agency to communicate classified voice and data at top secret level and below, the radio is capable of supporting all three of the army’s non-proprietary networking waveforms, including soldier radio waveform (SRW), wideband networking waveform (WNW) and the mobile user objective system (MUOS).

PRC-154/154A radios and the PRC-155 radio, when connected to WIN-T, enable dispersed forces to talk, text, share images and collaborate wherever they serve worldwide.

GD, along with Rockwell Collins, has to date delivered more than 3,400 two-channel manpack radios in support of army fielding requirements.
