General Dynamics and Rockwell Collins have shipped more than 1,200 AN/PRC-155 radios to the US government as part of a follow-on Low-rate Initial Production (LRIP) contract.

LRIP contract was for 1,500 new radios. The remaining radios will be shipped during the first quarter of 2015.

The two-channel PRC-155 radios are the US Army's digital 'connecting point' for soldiers and their commanders to share information while collaborating locally and globally, by the Warfighter Information Network.

The PRC-155 connects line-of-sight radios to satellite communications systems so soldiers can share observations from their current location, while receiving reconnaissance information or other data confirms or adjusts mission plans from anywhere in the operations area.

Soldiers can also use the PRC-155 to reach back to regional headquarters using secure satellite communication networks.

"The two-channel PRC-155 keeps soldiers consistently and securely connected to the tactical communications grid from anywhere", said Chris Marzilli, president of General Dynamics Mission Systems.
