Key Benefits

Unmatched Capabilities for Multi-Domain Dominance

  • Dual-channel, simultaneous crossbanding; each channel with independent voice, ISR video and data
  • Swiftly connects every echelon for more informed decision making
  • Talk groups prioritize information on a need-to-know basis
  • Second channel for critical redundancy
  • Extended wideband increases Situational Awareness throughput including HD Full Motion Video
  • Self-forming, self-healing tactical MANET networking simplifies communications and enhances edge warfighter agility
  • Broad portfolio of waveforms for Line-Of-Sight and Beyond-Line-Of-Sight connectivity
  • Latest ECCM technologies support clear, reliable communications in contested environments
  • MUOS-ready technologies and legacy SATCOM ensure warfighter connectivity in austere and extreme environments

Converged Architecture

Battlefield Advantage in a Single, Integrated Platform


  • Multiple technologies converged into a single radio, eliminating the need to carry numerous devices
  • Flexible handheld and manpack form factors answer unique needs of dismount, vehicular and edge forces


  • Software-defined architecture supports in-field updates to emerging capabilities
  • Encryption is also software-defined, providing fast security upgrades and ability to wipe to zero if radio custody is at risk
  • Mission Modules with standard interfaces allow adding new applications without radio platform hardware changes
  • Familiar Falcon® interface reduces training time and speeds deployment
  • Communications are fully interoperable with DoD and Coalition forces
  • Standard hardware interfaces work with existing tactical equipment, reducing costs
  • SWaP-optimized to reduce warfighter burden and provide more flexibility for mounted configurations
  • Multi-channel power management optimizes battery life for every mission
