Known in the military world as the “ANPRC343 Personal Role Radio”, there are over 200,000 deployed worldwide in 29 different countries. It is the standard issue radio for the U.S. Marine core, for the individual infantryman, and also for the 75th Ranger Regiment.
The PRR was made specifically for the individual foot soldier. The radio system completely eliminates the old methods of communicating such as yelling and hand signals and lifts the fog of war for the entire unit to have open, safe, and encrypted communications. The ability to communicate quietly and safely enables unit frontage to double in size and reduce the amount of casualties. The radio runs on standard AA batteries, making it compliant with all other equipment carried by the modern day soldier.
Heavily used in Iraq in convoy situations, the PRR has helped keep convoys stay on track and fulfill the mission.
The PRR is now available to Rent to the Military. All that is needed is to contact your closest Selex representative while in the train-up cycle, before deployment, and Selex will deliver the radios on a monthly rental basis. All associated gear can be rented as well such as: Wireless Push to talk buttons, and headsets (just to name a few).
There is a perpetual warranty and when the soldiers returns home the radio is simply sent back to Selex. No obligations and no minimum contract.
The new PRR Rental program gets the radio to the war fighter immediately and without a long and expensive procurement cycle. The soldier benefits, America’s security benefits, and the taxpayer benefits because costs are lower, and there are no hidden costs.
This is the most successful war fighter to war fighter radio on the market today.
