RAPTAWC MIL System Overview


           
    

Secure Voice, Message, Position: Base to Frontline
 

The RAPTAWC MIL system offers secure voice and data communications over mixed-vendor radio networks. The cryptography, modem and protocols are all contained in the RAPTAWC device making it possible to connect radios from more than one vendor in the same secure network. The RAPTAWC MIL system is designed for use by military and paramilitary forces requiring high-end digital radio capabilities at a price that makes budgetary sense.

The RAPTAWC MIL system is optimised for multi-rank tactical deployments. Solutions are available for base, land vehicle, vessel and man-portable installations.


Enhancements in radio effectiveness:
 
Performance
  Secure Voice and Data transmission is successful even when clear voice communication is not possible or viable.
Operator confidence
  Data messages have accurate delivery (ARQ) and receipt acknowledgement.
Accuracy
  Situational Awareness position updates are provided via an inbuilt GPS. Messages are time and date stamped.
Effectiveness in the field
  Reduces on-air time as messages can be prepared off-line, compressed and sent quickly meaning less chance of interception and less battery usage.
Efficiency
  One Key emergency messaging and templates for structured reporting requirements.

RAPTAWC RT7 Encrypted Voice / Data Modem


Voice, Position & Messaging
The RT7 is a 19" rack-mount Strategic Terminal. The RT7 is part of the RAPTAWC MIL family and works with any HF or V/UHF radio to provide secure voice, data and position services.

Local or Remote Operator

A local operator uses a handset connected to the RT7 front panel. The RT7 provides an Address Book to initiate Private Line calls or to send locally entered Messages or files. A remote operator, situated away from the device, uses the RT7 via the Intercom audio interface. The RT7 can then be operated via RAPTAWC CommandPoint or MessagePoint software.

Secure Digital Voice
RAPTAWC provides the next-generation radio speech encryption solution. RAPTAWC Secure Digital Voice (SDV) uses the new language-independent TWELP** low-rate vocoder. This is combined with powerful AES-256 encryption and modulated for HF/VHF/UHF use by a RapidM proprietary Digital Voice waveform.

Position Tracking
Fielded RT7 and RT5 units periodically send out their position information, allowing other RT7, RT5 and CommandPoint user to track Blue Forces.

Messaging
RAPTAWC provides fast accurate messaging services such as:

Chat and QuickText
File Transfer: Pictures, etc
Reports: CASEVAC, SITRAP, etc
Email with attachments
SMS to GSM Networks

RAPTAWC Key Management Software (KMS-256)
Secure key generation and distribution ensures that all over-the-air communications are end-to-end encrypted.

RAPTAWC System Configuration Software (SCS)
Easy-to-use software allows rapid creation and distribution of address books, network parameters and device configurations.
