Harris AN/VRC-118(V)1 Mid-tier Networking Vehicular Radio (MNVR)

The Harris AN/VRC-118(V)1 provides warfighters at the tactical edge the ability to share situational awareness. This modular, software-defined radio provides a dynamic, self-forming and self-healing wireless network for on-the-move and stationary forces. The MNVR is a space-efficient solution, and serves as a bridge between lower and upper Tactical Internet users without the need to purchase numerous networking gateways and other networking equipment.

Soldier Radio Waveform and Wideband Networking Waveform Capable

The MNVR utilizes two high-bandwidth waveforms—the Soldier Radio Waveform and the Wideband Networking Waveform—to increase overall connectivity and network capability by operating as a node. This allows mission-critical information to hop from one AN/VRC-118(V)1 MNVR to another, finding the best route between sender and receiver. The MNVR also uses retransmission for beyond-line-of-sight communications in SATCOM-denied environments where foliage, terrain and distance impact transmissions.
