Type-1 Wideband Tactical Radio
The AN/PRC-117G Wideband Multiband Multimission Radio: Now JTRS Certified.
The field-proven Harris AN/PRC-117G, shipping with SRW, provides warfighters with unprecedented situational awareness of the battlefield through wireless, high-bandwidth communications, enabling applications such as streaming video, simultaneous voice and data feeds, collaborative chat, as well as combat net radio capabilities and connectivity to secure networks. The AN/PRC-117G's wideband networking capabilities give warfighters on the move and field commanders critical real-time information through a man-portable radio that is significantly smaller, lighter and more capable than legacy units.
With more than 10 times the processing power of currently fielded Type-1 manpack radios, the AN/PRC-117G provides continuous coverage in the 30 MHz to 2 GHz frequency band and represents state-of-the-art radio technology that ensures software upgradeability well into the future. The radio is half the weight of legacy radios currently fielded, significantly lightening the soldier's load, and offers a high degree of mobility, security and survivability.

About JTRS Certification
The Joint Program Executive Office of the Joint Tactical Radio System has established two objective designations for devices that seek to be part of the Department of Defense tactical edge network. These are JTRS-Compliant and JTRS-Certified.
The Falcon III AN/PRC-117G operating SRW has become the first product to be classified as JTRS Certified. According to the JPEO, this means the radio is ready “for procurement or operations in a DoD or Service’s network architecture”, is compatible with DoD network objectives and is compliant with the following standards:
• JRIL Waveform Compliance
• JITC Interoperability
• JTRS SCA Certification
• JTRS API Certification
• NSA Certification
• NSA Approved Crypto
• NTIA Spectrum Certification
“Our fielding of the 117 Golf radio has laid the foundation today for the JTRS radio of the future.”

“The Polish armed forces are continuing to play a vital role in complex, multinational peacekeeping missions around the world. This requires our troops to be equipped with the most reliable and capable communications equipment possible […] these radios offer state-of-the-art interoperable capabilities across forces and across nations. And because they are software defined, they are adaptable to changing mission requirements.”

"The new PRC-117G has brought wonders to the communications community. Not only is the PRC-117G capable of what the PRC-117F can do, the new ANW2 feature offers us Marines data capabilities in any setting...I was dumbfounded that it was capable to last up to 18 hours on a single battery while being continuously used throughout the day. Harris Corporation’s RF Division has done it again with improving our communications systems. Thank you!"
