Cobham, Harris Corp. Build New Test And Alignment Software

Cobham is working with Harris Corporation to provide automated test and alignment capabilities for Harris XL-200P P25 radios using the Cobham 3920B Digital Radio Test Set. The Harris XL-200P is a multiband portable radio that supports P25 communications on VHF, UHF, and 700/800 MHz spectrum.

The Cobham 3920B is the only test set to date that Harris has certified for use/alignment for the XL-200P. With a proven track record for speed and accuracy, this application uses the precision instrumentation within the 3920B to quickly perform automated tests to specifications defined by the manufacturer. This ensures optimum radio performance in significantly less time, minimizing service and support costs for end users and dealers.

“Cobham AvComm is pleased to support the automated test and alignment capabilities for Harris’ XL-200P radios,” said Ryan Panos, VP/GM for Cobham AvComm. “Since the 3920B provides fully automated tests to the OEM specification, Harris’ dealers and end users will now be able to perform fast, repeatable and very accurate test functions with minimal technical interaction. This new capability further shows our commitment to Harris and the Public Safety community to provide innovative test solutions for these next generation radios.”

“The Cobham 3920B is a great tool to help radio users maintain their fleets,” said Eric Makovsky, Product Manager for Radio Software Development at Harris. “The Harris XL-200P is the most advanced multiband P25 radio on the market, and the 3290B makes it easy to consistently keep radios at top performance.
