U.S. and allied forces operating in the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) in Afghanistan are receiving new handheld tactical radios designed to provide secure communications among the diverse militaries. The radios feature National Security Agency (NSA) Type 1 Suite B security, which will enable them to exchange Secret-level voice and data transmissions with U.S. forces using standard-issue Suite B security radios such as the AN/PRC-152(C) handheld and AN/PRC-117G manpack radios, both of which have Type 1 Suite A and Suite B encryption.
