L3Harris provided a Protected Tactical Waveform (PTW)-enabled Half Airborne Transport Rack (ATR) Airborne Modem – Resilient (HAAM-R) during the exercise. Hosted on a Honeywell-owned Boeing 757, the modem successfully demonstrated how it maintains secure warfighter SATCOM connectivity in contested environments.
“Our capabilities provide warfighters long-range, higher-bandwidth communication in the presence of jamming across all domains,” said Brendan O’Connell, President, Broadband Communications, L3Harris. “This resilient modem is just one of the many PTW-enabled communication products L3Harris is developing to provide enhanced security and real-time communications for the warfighter.”
The waveform demonstration culminated years of L3Harris advanced communications engineering and testing to provide the U.S. military with an advanced long-range fire solution. The PTW mission capability furthers warfighter connectivity within the Air Force’s Advanced Battle Management System and DOD’s Joint All-Domain Command and Control enterprise while also supporting international partners.
HAAM-R is part of L3Harris’ extensive portfolio of solutions developed to meet multi-domain and coalition operation demands, including airborne and on-the-move platforms, fixed ground terminals and maritime systems. HAAM-R fits a form factor applicable to a wide variety of fighter, bomber, mobility, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance and specialty-mission platforms. L3Harris developed HAAM-R under a contract with the U.S. Air Force’s Aerial Networks Division at Hanscom Air Force Base, Massachusetts.
