The PRC-162(V)1 can perform MUOS communications (see above), as well as carry the Soldier Radio Waveform
. The firm adds that "the US armed forces will be receiving (this product) once authorisation is granted by US authorities," adding that the new radio is expected to be available for acquisition from the second half of 2018.
Advanced radios and waveforms including the Joint Tactical Radio System Ground Mobile Radio and Handheld Manpack, Soldier Radio Waveform
and Wideband Networking Waveform will be used to form the network, allowing data to low throughout the company and link communications to higher echelons via the Warfighter Information Network-Tactical.
The Rifleman Radio is interoperable, software programmable and upgradable and employs the Soldier Radio Waveform
. It is ruggedized and light, includes a convenient push-to-talk, and a hands-free headset.

(SRW) capability to bridge communications between aircraft and ground maneuver forces.
In addition, the STT has been selected by the US Government as the long-term radio solution for Link 16 and Soldier Radio Waveform
(SRW) capability for AH-64E Apache helicopters.
The new system is meant to give a squad leader the ability to connect with both legacy and new systems, such as the soldier radio waveform
Unlike traditional FM radios, the CS 13 Lower Tactical Internet requires a deliberate pre-planning effort to configure the Soldier Radio Waveform

(NYSE: HRS) said it has been awarded two indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity contracts to supply the US Army with Harris Soldier Radio Waveform
vehicular applique systems.
The advanced networking capabilities are made possible by incorporating transformational waveforms, such as the Wideband Networking Waveform (WNW) and Soldier Radio Waveform
(SRW), as well as legacy wave Vorms, such as Single Channel Ground and Airborne Radio System (SINCGARS), Enhanced Position Location Reporting Systems (EPLRS), Link 16, Ultra High Frequency Satellite Communications (UHF SATCOM) and HF.
A key capability that CERDEC developed, in partnership with ITT Corp., is the Soldier Radio Waveform
