The report summarizes the results of the design and development of Radio Set ANPRC-66 for the United States Air Force and Radio Set ANPRC-75 for the United States Marine Corps. Both transceivers are completely solid state and utilize the latest micro-miniature techniques and most recent advances in modular construction. The ANPRC-66 represents a major breakthrough in portable manpack equipment and the ANPRC-75 represents, likewise, a major breakthrough in handheld UHF equipment. The results of the design and development indicate that major advances have been realized in the areas of reliability, weight, and size. Both transceiver units have a predicted MTBF in excess of 2000 hours and weigh no more than 5.5 pounds ANPRC-66 and 3.9 pounds ANPRC-75, excluding battery. Also, the size of these radio sets is at least 80 smaller than similar equipment in production and use today.
