Harris Corp. unveiled enhancements to its mobile and portable radio solutions designed to improve ease-of-use and enhance functionality for users who depend on mobile radios.

The announcement was made today at the APCO International Conference and Expo in Houston.

The Harris Unity XG-100M features a touch-screen control head that enables users to associate color graphics with functionality more intuitively than text-based menus. The use of colors on the main display also allows users to quickly understand their operational environment.

New accessories for the Unity XG-100P multi-band portable radio include a Bluetooth-enabled speaker microphone for improved speaking flexibility. For security purposes, all connections are initiated and managed from the radio interface and can be secured using AES encryption. A 3,600 mAh Lithium-polymer battery for the Unity XG-100P is also available. This new Lithium pack is designed to provide a 27 percent improvement of battery life over existing NiMH and a 75 percent battery life improvement over existing NiCd batteries.

The RHHC is a new controller and microphone in a single unit form factor. Designed for mobile radios, the RHHC provides similar functions as a system control head and allows for a low-profile installation.

The M5300 multi-mode mobile radio now supports the P25 protocol in both trunking and conventional modes along with its OpenSky and analog conventional operating modes.

In other news, Harris announced that its Unity XG-100 multi-band radio is certified to meet applicable standards set forth by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's P25 Compliance Assessment Program (CAP) process.

The Unity XG-100 supports digital APCO P25 communications across all VHF, UHF, 700 MHz and 800 MHz public safety bands, enabling first responders to use a single radio to communicate with multiple jurisdictions and agencies operating on different frequencies and systems.
