    • Feature enhancements
    • Additional modes of operation
    • Future wideband waveforms
  • Capabilities available via software download


The AN/PRC-148 Joint Tactical Radio System (JTRS) Enhanced Multiband Inter/Intra Team Radio, or JEM, is an evolution of the combat-proven AN/PRC-148 MBITR and is the smallest, lightest, and most power-efficient multiband, tactical, handheld radio covering the 30-512 MHz frequency range in use today. Selected for all-services procurement as a JTRS-approved production radio, the AN/PRC-148 JEM is delivering the best of JTRS. This Software Communications Architecture-compliant platform hosts all of today's core waveforms. The 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. Through a significant level of design similarity with the AN/PRC-148 MBITR, 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 years. The AN/PRC-148(V)3(C) and AN/PRC-148(V)4(C) are SECAN approved.

  • Contiguous 30-512 MHz Coverage
  • 256 Programmable Presets
  • Programmable Encryption Engine (AIM)
  • 2 Meter and 20 Meter Immersible Variants

Simple software downloads provide enhanced capabilities for your AN/PRC-148 JEM. Additional features can be integrated into your AN/PRC-148 JEM as easily as adding more features to your computer:

  • AM/FM
  • Retransmission
