Army Aviation Summit: US Army Recertifies Harris Airborne Radio

Harris highlights ability to meet Army demand

The US Army has recertified Harris’ AN/ARC-201D airborne radio, validating that the radios are airworthy for use in Army helicopters. The radios will be produced at Harris’ state-of-the-art Rochester, NY/USA, facility.

Harris moved production to the company’s Jefferson Road Operations Center manufacturing facility in Rochester. The US Army’s Program Executive Office provided the Airworthiness Release after completing airworthiness testing of radios that had been modified to address component obsolescence.

With more than 7,000 radios fielded, the ARC-201D is a workhorse communication system for Army rotorcraft. It is an important addition to Harris’ airborne radio portfolio, providing reliable SINCGARS communications in even the most complex and demanding configurations.

Our operations team is prepared to meet the U.S. Army’s demand for ARC-201D radios over the next decade,” Chris Young, President, Harris Communication Systems, said. “Our employees at our state-of-the-art manufacturing facility are committed to delivering best-in-class products to our customers.”
