Harris Corporation Showcases Advanced Interoperable Communications During MILCOM 2007
Assured Communications(tm) Solutions Support Military’s Global Information Grid
Harris Corporation (NYSE:HRS), an international communications and information technology company, is demonstrating state-of-the-art products, advanced capabilities and architectures that support all layers of the Department of Defense Global Information Grid (GIG) during MILCOM 2007 (Harris booth #905) in Orlando, Florida. The company’s complete range of products and systems incorporate the highest levels of performance and reliability and support the Harris commitment to “Assured Communications — Anytime, Anywhere.”
Harris is this year’s industry host of the three-day premier military communications conference, which features both classified and unclassified technical sessions led by a distinguished roster of representatives from military, industry and academia, as well as the largest technical exposition in MILCOM’s 26-year history.
On display in the Harris exhibit are mobile networking solutions, advanced tactical radio systems, military satellite communications systems, information technology services and digital asset management solutions that can be linked through real-time networks to transfer secure voice, data, images, and video to the warfighter — anytime, anywhere — throughout the GIG.
Harris will feature its Falcon® III RF-300M manpack radio, a wideband networking radio that delivers secure Internet Protocol data to the tactical Internet at on-air rates of up to 10 Megabits per second (Mbps). The high data rate — coupled with mobile ad-hoc networking, automated network establishment and maintenance, and integrated security — provides a powerful networking solution. The RF-300M-MP and its software-defined architecture is interoperable with currently fielded radios, and incorporates SINCGARS, Havequick II, and the High Performance Waveform (HPW), as well as MIL-STD-181B Tactical Satellite (TACSAT) capability. The system utilizes the Software Communications Architecture (SCA), and was designed to host advanced government waveforms such as the Soldier Radio Waveform.
Further demonstrating its leadership in tactical networking, Harris also will feature its revolutionary Harris Highband Networking Radio (HNR) for mobile networking applications. The HNR is the first radio to provide wireless, long-range, high-bandwidth, on-the-move communications to the warfighter through the use of a Harris-developed waveform that enables the network to select the best communications route.
The company also will be displaying the Harris Border Security Shelter, a system that links information and communications technologies used to detect illegal border crossings or other threats to national or military security. The Border Security Shelter is a rugged, self-contained field command center that combines communications, command and control, and sensor systems under a single roof, tied together with either the Harris Falcon® II tactical radio network or existing networking infrastructure. The Border Security Shelter provides an IP-data backbone for receiving, synthesizing and re-distributing various forms of secure transmissions.
In the area of digital asset management, Harris will be showcasing FAME™ v. 1.0, its Full-Motion Video Asset Management Engine that speeds the process of analyzing a wide range of intelligence information. FAME™ integrates video analytics, video and audio coding and processing/storage capabilities into a single digital asset management platform and provides the infrastructure for changing the way video is processed, catalogued and reviewed. FAME™ is designed to provide “intelligence fusion” — combining information obtained from many platforms into a single, composite picture of the operational environment.
“The products and capabilities that we are presenting at MILCOM not only address the assured communications requirements of the GIG, but also the interoperability theme of this year’s conference,” said Bob Henry, Harris chief operating officer and executive chairman of MILCOM 2007. “Many Harris technologies and products, such as our multiband, multimission, tactical radios and SATCOM terminals, are key enablers of interoperability and play a major role in the emerging GIG.”
More than 4,000 people are expected to attend MILCOM 2007, which is co-sponsored by the Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association (AFCEA) International and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Communications Society. The annual defense communications forum is being held October 29-31 in Orlando, Florida, at the Gaylord Palms Resort and Convention Center. The theme for this year’s conference is “Interoperability: Policy to Performance.”
