Helicopter and Multi Mission Radios

Description

Helicopter and Multi Mission Radios (HAMMR) encompasses the overarching Security Forces Assistance Brigades. Air to Ground Networking Information System (AGNIS), Combat Survivor Evader Radio (CSEL), High Frequency Radios (HF), Integrated Visual Augmentation System (IVAS) and all four pillars of Army Link-16 (Ground ADA, Ground Fires, Aviation, and Gateways).

Formally Airborne, Maritime & Fixed Station (AMF), HAMMR changed its mission by terminating the Manuever and Small Airborne Networking Radio programs to become the Army’s program for the Security Forces Assistance Brigade (SFAB), and Air-Ground Networking Information System (AGNIS) missions. PM TR is also responsible for Army Link-16, HF radios, IVAS, and Combat Survivor Evader Locator radios (CSEL).
