According to the firm, “Harris is supplying RF-310M-HH multiband, multi-mission, software-defined radios under the U.S. Department of Defense Coalition Readiness Support Program to provide secure communications interoperability to the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) in Afghanistan. The RF-310M-HH is the first NSA Type-1, Suite-B certified tactical radio for protecting voice and data transmissions up to SECRET level classification.”

The firm expects the product to make communications between allied nations simplified

“The RF-310M-HH was developed in response to the increased use of multi-national coalitions on today’s battlefield, ” said Steve Marschilok, president, Department of Defense business, Harris RF Communications. “Nations in these coalitions utilize many different types of radios, each with their own sovereign encryption technologies, making inter-coalition communication a challenge. The RF-310M-HH provides a bridge to simplify how forces from different countries communicate, which results in improved coordination, easier mission planning, and reduced risk of casualties due to friendly fire.”
