The Harris/Cubic solution integrates Cubic’s Common Data Link (CDL) transceiver technology for receiving video from UAS platforms with the Harris Falcon III® AN/PRC-117G open-standard wideband tactical radio. The system is geared to deliver UAS video to military forces operating at the tactical edge with the greatest need for immediate intelligence.
Currently, ISR data and ground tactical communications are handled using separate and often non-interoperable technologies. Combining the two in a single system creates a versatile solution that links high-bandwidth video into wideband voice and data radio networks — leading to greater situational awareness, faster decision-making and improved operational planning, all while lightening the soldier’s load.
The Harris AN/PRC-117G radio is the first wideband manpack radio system with a JTRS-certified Software Communications Architecture and NSA Type-1 certified information security. The radio’s wideband architecture enables applications such as streaming video, simultaneous voice and data feeds, collaborative chat, and connectivity to secure networks. This provides warfighters and field commanders with critical real-time information through a smaller, lighter and more capable man-portable radio.
Cubic offers a comprehensive family of data link products that provide ISR capabilities for land, air, and sea military operations. The data links allow military commanders to obtain near real-time images and data to precisely locate and identify enemy targets — anywhere, at any time — in a network-centric environment.
