Harris Corporation’s Small Secure Data Link Receives National Security Agency Certification

MELBOURNE, Fla. July 19, 2011


  • NSA Type 1 certification enables radio to transmit and receive high-security military communications
  • SSDL is the lowest size, weight and power (SWaP) Type 1 VHF/UHF embeddable radio available
  • Earliest applications expected in unmanned, airborne applications

A small, lightweight, embeddable radio developed by Harris Corporation (NYSE:HRS) has received Type 1 certification from the National Security Agency, paving the way for its use in high-security, space-constrained communications applications such as unmanned airborne systems, vehicles and shelters.

The Harris Small Secure Data Link (SSDL) provides embedded encryption capabilities in a single-channel, multiband, multi-mission radio.  Measuring less than 25 cubic inches and weighing just 18 ounces, it is the smallest size, weight and power (SWaP) Type 1 VHF/UHF software-defined, embeddable radio available today.  The SSDL is based on the battle-proven Harris Falcon III® AN/PRC-152(C) handheld radio – the world’s most widely deployed, software-defined tactical radio, with more than 150,000 units delivered.

"Our (Harris) customers also are pleased that we are able to consolidate and replace multiple legacy radios to give mission planners greater flexibility as a result of the SWaP savings achieved with the SSDL," Fox added.


Harris Avionics and Electronics business is a major developer, supplier and integrator of communications and information processing products, systems, and networks for a diverse base of aerospace, terrestrial and maritime programs. Harris supports the ongoing transformation of military communications for U.S. and international customers.
