The AN/PRC-148 JEM is an evolution of the combat-proven AN/PRC-148 Muiltiband Inter/Intra Team Radio (MBITR). It is the smallest, lightest, and most widely-fielded tactical handheld radio covering the 30-512 MHz frequency range and enables the integration of feature enhancements, additional modes of operation, and future wideband waveforms.

Product Literature


The AN/PRC-148 JEM’s programmable cryptography supports the requirements of the National Security Agency’s (NSA) crypto modernization program and is certified by NSA to protect the confidentiality of voice and data up through the Top Secret level. Programmable INFOSEC enables interoperability with a full range of legacy systems and allows for non-Type 1 or exportable INFOSEC implementations. With the AN/PRC-148 MBITR as its baseline, the AN/PRC-148 JEM’s features—like the human machine interface—minimize training requirements, enable rapid fielding, and provide the reliability that warfighters have trusted for many years.
