TC5 Wideband HF & VHF Modem and ALE Controller Module
The TC5 module is intended for users seeking to fully exploit the available spectrum for the highest speeds of BLOS and HF surface wave communications. The module can host Wideband HF Modem functions that fully comply with MIL-STD-188-110C App. D up to 24 kHz audio bandwidth. The TC5 hardware will in future host Wideband Automatic Link Establishment (WALE) (also known as Fourth Generation (4G) ALE) as per MIL-STD-188-141D Appendix G. A Wideband VHF modem (3 to 48 kHz) can also be hosted.
RM10 Wideband SDM & ALE – 24 kHz
The RM10 Wideband SDM & ALE product was developed in response to the emerging Wideband HF Data Modem (MIL-STD-188-110C) and ALE (MIL-STD-188-141D) standards for strategic and maritime BLOS radio communications. The RM10 addresses the need for higher throughput data communications over contiguous wideband radio channels in the HF, VHF and UHF bands. The RM10 offers all the functionality provided by the RM8.
TC2 HF & V/UHF Modem, ALE and Secure Digital Voice Module
The TC2 offers HF & VHF/UHF data modems, 2G ALE and 3G ALE / STANAG 4538. The TC2 hardware can also host RapidM’s EF-256 Embedded functions, which include Secure Digital Voice (SDV) and AES 256 encryption.
RA2 Secure Voice Modem
The RA2 is a high performance secure digital voice modem. The RA2 is suitable for first responders, security agencies, governmental, paramilitary and even military users requiring voice privacy and asset tracking.
TC4-LP HF & V/UHF Modem, ALE and Secure Digital Voice Module
The TC4-LP is a ‘TC4 foot-print compatible’ module optimised for low power consumption. The TC4-LP offers the same functions found in the TC4: including HF & VHF/UHF data modems, 2G ALE and 3G ALE / STANAG 4538. In addition, the TC4-LP hardware can host the RapidM EF-256 Embedded functions, which include Secure Digital Voice (SDV) and AES 256 encryption.
RT7 Encrypted Voice / Data Modem
The RT7 is a 19″ rack-mount Strategic Secure Terminal that is part of the RT family and works with any HF or V/UHF radio via the audio interface. The RT7 provides fully secure services including link set-up, digital voice, data and position. The RT7 provides interfaces to connect to an Intercom system and Ethernet LAN.
RC8 ARQ Server & IP Controller – 32 kbps
The RC8 ARQ Server & IP Controller is a purpose-built platform for Automatic Repeat reQuest (ARQ) communications functions based on STANAG 5066 and STANAG 4538.
RM6-A Data Modem & ALE Controller
The RM6-A is a high data rate LF & HF data modem and ALE controller for standards-based BLOS naval and strategic data communications.
RM8 Software Defined Modem & ALE – 3, 6 kHz
The RM8 is a high data rate LF & HF data modem and ALE controller for standards-based BLOS naval and strategic data communications. The RM8 extends the functions found in the RM6-A to also include the STANAG 4538 / 3G ALE Automatic Radio Control System (ARCS) function. The RM8 units are suitable for NATO BRASS & BRE1TA (BRASS Enhancements 1 Technical Architecture) shore station deployments offering split-site 2G & 3G ALE.
