Smallest Multi-Channel Vehicular Radio Launched

L3Harris Technologies’ RF-7850D is three times smaller than any other multi-channel vehicular radio, mounts in a low-profile chassis, with reduced SWaP, and is the only radio in its class to provide interoperability across the entire battlefield By / 15 Mar 2021

L3Harris Technologies has introduced the industry’s smallest multi-channel, multi-mission radio. The RF-7850D radio gives users the choice of either two simultaneous 30-512 MHz channels, or an optional second channel for continuous coverage spanning 30-2500 MHz.

When used in a vehicular application, the RF-7850D mounts in a low-profile chassis, is easy to install and conceal without interfering with vehicle navigation and passenger egress.

The RF-7850D leverages the TDMA Networking Waveform (TNW) family for true simultaneous voice and data services over wideband, narrowband and ECCM channels. It is interoperable with legacy Falcon II systems and is software-defined, ready to interface with next-generation waveforms and networking technology.

The RF-7850D also includes the L3Harris Mission Module interface, supporting additional technologies and custom capabilities, ranging from new waveforms to commercial solutions. Users can employ the RF-7850D to crossband three disparate networks together simultaneously, into a single all-informed network.

“The 7850D is the only radio in its class providing interoperability across every echelon of the battlefield, bridging communication from the tactical edge to the VHF and UHF mid-tier and the airborne tier,” said Bryant Henson, President, Tactical Communications, L3Harris. “It is the ultimate in SWaP-reduced multi-channel communications for tactical vehicles and Tactical Operations Centers.”
