Harris (Stand 03-A21) has announced the release of its new Falcon Net Ecosystem to deliver the tactical networking capabilities needed for connecting command level to dismounted users.

The Falcon Net Ecosystem is an entire system of communications software, hardware and services, including radios, waveforms, services, applications and network management, with all tiers across the battlefield. According to Harris, state-of-the-art software-defined radio technology enables waveform commonality, mission flexibility and secure centralised management.

A simple-to-use platform on which a robust tactical C4I network can be architected, deployed, used and maintained, the Falcon Net Ecosystem consists of four main components. These comprise a mode set of more than 50 waveforms across a full range of frequencies; software-defined Falcon family of radios; Falcon tactical applications that allow the warfighter to visualise and manage the battlefield; and Falcon Network Services that assist users in the creation and maintenance of their tactical network.

"Our warfighters need more than just the ability to communicate on the battlefield - they need the ability to aggregate and disseminate information across the network," said Dana Mehnert, president, Harris Communication Systems. "Harris' Falcon Net Ecosystem ensures warfighters have the tools on hand to manoeuvre, fight and win on the contested and congested battlefield."
