Applications include command and control, situational awareness, forward observation link and messaging services.

The new generation product range includes software defined radios with embedded ECCM such as fast frequency hopping and high level encryption ensuring a secure link under hostile conditions, data link and networking capabilities to meet the ever demanding net-centric warfare requirements. The product range provides for Airborne, Ground based and Naval applications for a fully interoperable and integrated C2 network.

In order to facilitate customisation of and upgrades to radio functionality, updated software may be downloaded externally. At all times, backwards compatibility with legacy equipment is ensured.

The ACR500 family of radios is a multi-mode, multi-band airborne transceiver operating in the 30 MHz to 420 MHz frequency range with excellent collocation capabilities simplifying the installation of multiple radios on a single platform. The transceiver is typically installed on fixed and rotary wing aircrafts providing air to air or air to ground communications.

ACR500 Airborne Transceiver System for air to air and air to ground communications. A  V/UHF, multi-mode, multi-band transceiver with encryption, hopping, data link and networking capabilities, as well as direct sequence spread spectrum for low probability of detection/interception.

Fully interoperable with our Land and Naval Radios.

The benefits associated with this software based transceiver includes embedded data link and networking capabilities allowing secure transmission of data communications to prevent eavesdropping and circumvent jamming. Forward Error Correction is employed to ensure robustness against channel impairments.  

Typical applications include Virtual Radar where the position, velocity, and acceleration of each aircraft in a flight are transmitted to the other aircraft by means of the Master-less Ad-Hoc TDMA link.

This allows each aircraft in the flight to ‘see’ the position of all the other aircraft on a display formatted to mimic airborne radars.

The Virtual Radar application is particularly useful on trainer aircraft (without a radar) and the display formatted to mimic that of the fighter aircraft the pilot will eventually transition to, thereby saving on the expense of a radar per trainer. 

Command and control networks can be designed to allow targeting, threat and other operational information to be passed to the aircraft from ground stations via other airborne platforms, if necessary, while en route to a target. 

Images (such as FLIR pictures) can be passed to sea- or ground-based platforms thereby providing a beyond the horizon capability. 

The ACR500 family of radios also provides the necessary outputs to control electronically tunable antennas and a fully synthesized Auxiliary Receiver covering 110 – 400 MHz or the traditional fixed channel Guard Receiver.

The FCR500 is a ground based radio operating from either mains or batteries and incorporates all the advanced features of the ACR500. This Transceiver is intended to provide reliable communications in critical Ground to Air situations such as ATC/Mission Control, Radar, Mobile Air Operation and Naval applications. A 100% duty cycle allows continuous operation, whilst fast frequency hopping and high level encryption ensure a secure link under hostile conditions. Options exist for Local Front Panel Operation or Full Remote Control allowing easy integration into any system.

The FCR500 transceiver may also be configured as dedicated Transmitter FCT500 or Receiver FCR500 facilitating split site operation.

Fully interoperable with our Airborne, Land mobile and Naval Radios.

The MCR3005 is a V/UHF tactical man-portable radio designed for ground to air communications with rotary or fixed wing platforms. As the modern day soldier requires reliable, robust communications, the MCR3005 transceiver has been designed to deliver such superior performance, even in the harshest environments.

The MCR3005 is equipped with data link and networking capabilities enabling high data throughput, fast turnaround time and a simple interface to external applications.
