High performance, standards compliant, HF and VHF / UHF data modems for strategic, naval and commercial platforms.
The RM Product Family is engineered for users who require high performance best-in-class products that fully comply with the current standards for satellite independent beyond line of sight (BLOS) strategic, maritime, narrowband and wideband HF and VHF/UHF data communications. The RM products provide excellent environmental specifications with respect to temperature, shock & vibration and MTBF.
The family includes HF and VHF/UHF Data Modems (conforming to MIL-STD-188-110A, MIL-STD-188-110B, MIL-STD-188-110C – wideband HF, STANAG 5069, 4285, 5065, 4529, 4415, 4539 and 4691), Automatic Link Establishment (ALE) functions for 2G ALE (conforming to MIL-STD-188-141A, MIL-STD-188-141B and MIL-STD-188-141C), Automatic Link Establishment (ALE) functions for 3G ALE (conforming to STANAG 4538 FLSU) and 3G Packet Data Modems (conforming to STANAG 4538 xDL). The RM family modems provide data services in satellite denied environments.
Products in the RM Family forms part of the Naval and Strategic as well as the Governmental and Security divisions.
Products at a glance
RM10 Wideband SDM & ALE – 24 kHz
The RM10 HF Modem & ALE – 24kHz follows in the footsteps of the RM8 offering MIL-STD-188-110C (24 kHz, 120 kbps) waveform and the 4G ALE (WALE) capability – software option. The RM10’s small size, shock and vibration tolerance, low power consumption and high temperature range is aimed at integration into crowded cabinets. With WB HF spectrum at a premium, this modem affords System Integrators a price competitive entry into the WBHF arena.
RM8 Software Defined Modem & ALE – 3, 6 kHz
The aim at RapidM with the RM8 was to become the global benchmark for the 3G ALE / STANAG 4538 standard. This unit finds service in many HF systems including NATO BRASS and BRE1TA split-site shore stations. The code base in this unit is embedded in numerous high-power HF transceivers. These ½ of 1U format products are also available as quad versions to save space in the cabinet.
RM6-A Data Modem & ALE Controller
When we designed the RM6-A at RapidM, the aim was to establish a reference in quality and performance, improving on its predecessor the RM6. That is why this modem has become the true workhorse of narrowband (3 kHz) HF BLOS data communication systems and finds service in numerous maritime and NATO naval systems.
RM6 LF & HF Modem & ALE Controller
The now discontinued RM6 was developed to provide its user with the best performing 3kHz HF BLOS modem of its time. The STANAG and MIL-STD compliant modem is intended for use in maritime and NATO naval systems. The RM6 is now superseded by the RM6-A Data Modem & ALE Controller.
RM4 HF Modem & ALE Controller
The RM4 is intended for users needing a 19″ rack mountable HF modem at a lower cost compared to the RM6-A. The modem and ALE controllers pairs with RapidM’s RC50 Email Software to provide standards compliant HF email service.
RM2 HF & V/UHF Data Modem
The RM2 was designed for governmental agencies and NGO’s requiring standards compliant HF email service. This compact modem offers BLOS HF data modem and 2G ALE capacities as well as a VHF data modem for faster email delivery over LOS VHF channels.
