Kratos Partners with Harris Corporation to Bring Advanced Hand Held Radios to the Warfighter
Licensing Agreement Incorporates Kratos-Developed CDL Waveforms into Harris Tactical Radios for Enhanced ISR Capabilities
Fully integrated into the programmable radios, Kratos’ next generation tactical communication waveforms receive and process real-time ISR information and full-motion video sent from airborne platforms— such as UAVs— as well as other sources to warfighters on the ground. The waveforms enhance interoperability, enabling the mobile network to connect ground, airborne and naval forces via multiple tactical host platforms. Security features for data protection and jamming resistance are inherent to the software-defined waveforms which include Bandwidth Efficient Common Data Link (BE CDL), Standard CDL, Vortex Native Waveform (VNW), Tactical Data Link (TDL), 466-Extended Range (ER) and other tactical waveforms.
“Kratos was selected as our partner because they proved operational use of the BE-CDL waveform as part of the USMC Secure Common Data Link (CDL) Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) radio and they have been providing verification of waveforms for all CDL radios through their CDL test set for several years,” stated Harris’
“Harris Communication Systems and Kratos are natural partners for providing superior tactical communications solutions,” said
