SRW on Falcon III AN/PRC-117G

SRW or Soldier Radio Waveform is a byproduct of the Joint Tactical Radio System (JTRS) initiative.      SRW runs under software control on a software definable radio or SDR. SRW is a wide-band communications architecture providing concurrent voice and data communications along with the ability to establish ad hoc networks in the field. The feature translates to a flexible, self-healing, voice and data communications network to enhance C2ISR.

The National Security Agency (NSA) has awarded Harris Corporation a Type-1 certification for integration of the SRW waveform in the Falcon III AN/PRC-117G  platform representing the first deployment of Type -1 radios using the SRW waveform. Falcon III AN/PRC-117G  offers coverage in the 30MHz to 2GHz frequency so data rates should be quite high.

Type-1 certification is a process by which the NSA validates electronic equipment hardware and supporting software for cryptographically securing classified U.S. information. A formal definition of  Type-1 through Type-4 certifications can be obtained from the National Assurance Information Glossary.
