SAN DIEGO - The Joint Tactical Networking Center (JTNC) announced today that the Harris Corporation, Melbourne, Fla., has received Joint Tactical Radio System (JTRS) Certification for the AN/PRC-152A(V)(C) operating Soldier Radio Waveform (SRW) software version 1.01.1C.

This designation indicates that the AN/PRC-152A radio has undergone extensive testing and has met the minimum criteria for SRW 1.01.1C interoperability with other tactical communication platforms and communication security.

JTRS Certification is part of the JTNC Technical Assessments for Certification and Compliance (TACC) process, an evolving initiative to ensure end-to-end joint service interoperability and security. The rigorous process verifies and validates that software-defined radios operating JTRS Waveforms have undergone technical assessments to mitigate development and government procurement risks. Achieving JTRS Certification means a device is ready to operate in a Department of Defense (DoD) or Service network architecture and environment.

"The JTNC TACC process supports the non-developmental item (NDI) acquisition strategies of the DoD and the Services in building tactical networks that are interoperable and secure using radios running JTRS waveforms", said Mark Compton, JTNC's director and assistant program executive officer for Command, Control and Communications-Tactical (PEO C3T). "It is open to vendors porting JTRS Waveforms onto their products, directly supporting the Department's Better Buying Power (BBP) focus on promoting effective competition and incentivizing innovation."

As part of the Department of Defense, and under executive management of the Army's Program Executive Office, Command, Control, Communications-Tactical (PEO C3T), the Joint Tactical Networking Center (JTNC) develops, sustains, and certifies Joint Tactical Networking applications and waveforms for the Warfighter; thus enabling secure, interoperable and affordable battlefield networking systems.
