- System designed to easily integrate technology for soldiers to use
- Will deliver tactical video from forward-deployed forces to commanders for quick analysis and decision-making
- FalconFighter combines Harris strengths in systems engineering and expertise, tactical communications and customer support
The customer ordered more than 500 FalconFighter systems to provide its military forces with enhanced capabilities for streaming live video from the field to commanders for improved decision- making.
A key component in the first FalconFighter delivery is the RF-7400E-VP, a lightweight body-worn processor that provides advanced streaming video capabilities on the move. The TVP encodes video captured by an analog camera into an advanced video compression standard, reducing bandwidth and storage requirements. The converted video can be easily sent over Internet Protocol networks.

"Peripherals like the RF-7400E dramatically expand the power of wideband networking radio systems now being deployed by military forces around the world,” Start said. "This will help feed richer information to the battlefield and result in improved situational awareness and operational decision making."
The RF-7400E comes with the Harris Video Management Application software, which allows users to view and manage multiple video streams via a personal computer or PDA device.
