Sidewinder Vehicle Mount

For On-The-Move SRW Communications

The Sidewinder Vehicle Mount extends the Soldier Radio Waveform (SRW) network to the vehicular environment by connecting a handheld radio, such as PRC-154A Rifleman Radio, with a high-power amplifier in a low-cost vehicle mount configuration. In addition to enabling vehicular voice and data communications, the radio can also be quickly removed for dismounted operations without losing connection to the network.


  • Cost-effective solution for single-channel SRW in a vehicle
  • Jerk-and-run capable to support dismount operations
  • Compatible with current vehicular mounting adaptors, computers, data devices, and intercom systems
  • Significant range extension
