The US Special Operations Command has ordered next generation Manpack radio system from Harris Corp. to replace legacy manpack radios such as the AN/PRC-117F and AN/PRC-117G. 

“Harris Corp., RF Communications, Rochester, New York, has been awarded an indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract with a $255,000,000 maximum ceiling value to provide the Special Operations Forces Tactical Communications Next Generation Manpack (STC NGMP) Radio system in support of U.S. Special Operations Command to conduct a Capital Equipment Replacement Program, replacing legacy manpack radios such as the AN/PRC-117F and AN/PRC-117G,” the US Department of Defense announced Monday. 

The STC NGMP will provide Special Operations Forces teams with the ability to communicate utilizing a two-channel manpack radio.  The NGMP will provide a capability to receive and distribute intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance data in the form of full motion video, and support simultaneous dual channel line of sight and/or beyond line of sight operation utilizing legacy, and advanced waveforms. 

The majority of the work will be performed at the contractor’s location in Rochester, New York, and is expected to be completed by June 2023, the statement added.
