CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa. Rockwell Collins announces that its AN/PRC-162(V)1 Software Defined Radio (SDR) is now the first tactical ground radio to pass one of the critical tests required to meet the security requirements required to operate with the Department of Defense (DoD) final version of the Mobile User Objective System (MUOS).

The US Naval Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (SPAWAR) performed the testing – known as Do No Harm (DNH) – of the AN/PRC-162 using the most current version of the MUOS waveform. This waveform, a generational advance over today’s UHF SATCOM communications, will allow military forces to communicate crystal-clear voice, video and mission data over a worldwide, secure, high-speed Internet Protocol-based system. MUOS will also enable connectivity to the DoD Global Information Network and the Defense Switched Network and has been successfully tested for Integrated Broadcast Service (IBS) message distribution.

“MUOS will provide the warfighter with more mobility, improved signal quality and availability, which is especially important for units on the ground if they are operating in rough terrain or communicating beyond line of sight,” said Troy Brunk, Deputy. president and general manager, communications, navigation and electronic warfare solutions for Rockwell Collins.
