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.

Products include a new wearable version of the FireStorm Integrated Targeting System that provides a scalable targeting capability for use on foot in a mobile role as well as for static applications
Rockwell Collins has developed the Remote Secure Receiver (RSR) that features smallest, lowest power, protected, secure and trusted Selected Availability Anti-Spoofing Module (SAASM) GPS solution for the soldiers. The RSR which was recently ordered by the Battlefield Airmen Office of the Air Force Special Operations Command, offers the warfighter assured PNT information, enabling increased situational awareness, and the ability to support highly effective fires missions that reduce fratricide and collateral damage
General Dynamics announced today that its four-channel Digital Modular Radios (DMR) are being upgraded with high-frequency dynamic routing (HFDR) software to turn the radio's four channels into eight virtual channels. In addition to HFDR, the new high-frequency virtual channel exploitation software expands the DMR's communications capacity to 16 virtual channels when operating in the high frequency (HF) line-of-sight and ultra-high frequency (UHF) satellite communications frequencies
Zen Technologies and Rockwell Collins announced today that they will be displaying an aviation simulator and training product developed and designed collaboratively by both partners during the biennial Airshow Aero India starting from February 18 at Bangalore.
