The first two-channel AN/PRC-155 Manpack radios ordered by the US Army and built by General Dynamics C4 Systems and Rockwell Collins are being delivered to the US Army.
The order, placed in January for 1,500 additional PRC-155 Manpack radios, is part of a low-rate initial production contract supporting the Army´s fielding requirements. The last PRC-155 radio ordered by this LRIP will be delivered to the Army in November.
“We will continue to produce the PRC-155 Manpack radios, which provide soldiers with the most advanced and cyber-secure communications capability proven effective by soldiers and commanders in Afghanistan, as directed by the Army,” said Chris Marzilli, president of General Dynamics C4 Systems.
The two-channel PRC-155 Manpack radios, rigorously tested and evaluated as directed by the Army, help improve soldiers´ and commanders´ situational awareness for faster decision-making in response to changing mission conditions.
