The system leverages the latest software-defined radios from the Harris Falcon III ® RF-7800 family. This includes the RF-7800H, the first wideband HF tactical radio, delivering expanded data capabilities for long-range, beyond-line-of-sight environments; the RF-7850M, for wideband mobile ad-hoc networking; and the RF-7800S, a lightweight soldier personal radio for full-duplex voice and data communications over two kilometers. The order also includes vehicular and base station systems, accessories, spares, and training services.
