  • Improved TNW-75 waveform doubles user nodes in the communications network
  • Leading waveform includes advanced situational awareness and electronic warfare defenses
  • Supports Harris’ commitment to continue improving industry leading waveforms and radios

(Harris Booth #03-A21) — Harris Corporation (NYSE:HRS) has upgraded the TNW-75 Waveform – doubling the user node count and providing significantly greater value for large C4I networks.

The increase in nodes from 64 to 128 enables users to flatten the company and below networks into a single 75 kHz network that provides more accurate operational understanding, eliminates radio-to-radio interconnection points of failure, and reduces the number of radios and required spectrum by 25 percent.

The upgrade further enhances the already capable TNW-75 waveform, which is self-forming and self-healing, designed for ease of use and provides a common operating picture with a range of up to 30 kilometers. Other advanced capabilities include low latency situational awareness updates while on the move, real-time C2 for dismounted, mobile and aerial tier assets, and up to six platoon-level talk groups. The waveform also provides streamlined mapping of both blue and red forces, while providing electronic warfare defense via flexible operations through both VHF and UHF spectrums and with anti-jamming technologies.

“This TNW-75 improvement, coupled with the Harris 7850 leading family of radios, provides customers with an overwhelming communications advantage on the technology-driven battlefield,” said Christopher Aebli, vice president and general manager, International Tactical Communications. “The capability improvement delivered on a narrow-band 75 kHz channel makes it ideal for spectrum-constrained environments and large-scale land force deployments.”
