General Dynamics' PRC-155 two-channel Manpack radio keeps soldiers cyber-defended and connected to the Soldier's Network. General Dynamics Mission Systems and Rockwell Collins shipped more than 1,200 AN/PRC-155 radios to the government as part of a follow-on Low-rate Initial Production contract for 1,500 new radios.

Soldiers can also use the PRC-155 to reach back to regional headquarters using secure satellite communication networks.
