Harris Corp improves warfighters' communications network with the Embeddable Modular Radio
The Embeddable Modular Radio (EMR) from Harris Corporation enabled warfighters to expand their communications network during the U.S. Marine Corps’ recent Talon Reach VI combat training exercise. The multi-day event incorporated leading-edge technologies, such as the Harris EMR, into a variety of simulated missions.

The Harris EMR provides secure network connectivity through multiple waveforms, including ANW2 and SRW. The radio sustains network connectivity throughout an entire mission, is smaller than a deck of playing cards, and weighs less than 90 grams — making it ideal for use in Small Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (SUAVs). These features enable users to extend their voice/data range while also adding video capture/dissemination capabilities — all while using the same SUAV.

The Harris EMR significantly expanded the battlefield communications network, well beyond what was previously achievable,” said Chris Young, president, Communication Systems. “The EMR was installed on RQ-11 Raven and InstantEye Gen III Quadcopter SUAVs, which extended beyond line-of-sight communications and data relays. This provided voice, video and high-speed data communications to Marines across a vast simulated battlefield.

Talon Reach VI exercises included a company landing team simulation, during which the Harris EMR was used to relay communications among Marines across the battlefield. The EMR provided actionable intelligence, including video surveillance feeds and interfaced maps, to the Marines’ tactical tablets.

The Marine Corps were not only able to assess the Harris EMR for use in SUAVs, but also to broadly incorporate the ‘game changing’ capabilities of this compact and powerful radio to fulfill a variety of communications and networking needs,” said Young. “The EMR technology is highly versatile because of its small size, low power requirements, high efficiency and ability to interoperate with multiple waveforms and adapt to future upgrades.
