Harris Corp. has successfully completed initial interoperability testing of its Falcon III AN/PRC-117G multiband manpack radio with the Mobile User Objective System (MUOS) system.

The AN/PRC-117G hosted MUOS software and waveforms at the Joint Tactical Networking Center MUOS Reference Implementation Laboratory in San Diego, Calif., said a Harris news release. More tests are scheduled at the U.S. government MUOS system integration labs in Arizona. The radio successfully completed separate on-air tests last year in San Diego and near the North Pole.

"Harris is rapidly delivering on its commitment to offer the MUOS waveform in AN/PRC-117G tactical radios," said George Helm, president of the Department of Defense unit at Harris RF Communications. "Simple software upgrades will bring MUOS to more than 30,000 AN/PRC-117G radios already in use, giving the DoD the most cost-effective solution for rapidly transitioning its tactical satellite radio inventory to support this important new capability."
