The only Type-1 certified handheld radio to include both high-bandwidth data services and narrowband legacy waveform support.
The Harris Falcon III® AN/PRC-152A Wideband Networking Handheld Radio provides simultaneous voice and high-speed data services on the move. The handheld incorporates interoperability with traditional narrowband LOS and SATCOM waveforms such as SINCGARS, Havequick II, and VHF/UHF AM and FM in the 30-512 MHz range. For homeland security operations, the radio supports APCO P25 to bridge the gap between U.S. DoD agencies, emergency first responders, and state and local agency personnel.
On top of the traditional waveforms, the AN/PRC-152A is capable of wideband (1.2 MHz Bandwidth) IP-based networking waveforms from 225 to 450 MHz. With more power (5W LOS, 10W SATCOM) and more frequency coverage (30-512 and 762-870 MHz), the AN/PRC-152A is the only complete multiband handheld radio offering assured communications for the warfighter.
Data Applications Include:
• Video and Image Dissemination
• Situational Awareness and Mapping
• Text Messaging and Email
• Mobile Device Apps
“I was asked the other day whether there was any other stuff we could take right now to combat? If you had to take something, what would you take? I told them it would be the SRW and -152 Alpha.”
Captain, U.S. Army
“The SRW network on the -152 Alpha has definitely helped us out on operations,” he reiterated. “The communications have been crystal clear. I can talk from my vehicle, as well and on the approach march up [during the NIE 12.2 tactical phase]. I was anywhere from 30 to 40 km away from the objective and my units could hear me talking on my company internal net. And I mean crystal clear.”
“I’m still a big fan of FM comms,” he said. “But when I had a platoon leader tell me yesterday that he could hear me 30 k (kilometers) away crystal clear …I mean, with FM comms the further you get away the contact is usually a little degraded. But to have a platoon leader tell me, ‘I heard you plain as day over SRW,’ that was something for me.”
He continued, “I was asked the other day whether there was any other stuff we could take right now to combat? If you had to take something, what would you take? I told them it would be the SRW and -152 Alpha.”
