Radio Makers are faced with ever-expanding functional and performance demands when developing HF and V/UHF radios. The TC Range of embeddable modules provides next generation digital capabilities to new and existing designs at minimal integration effort and low overall cost. Capabilities include secure digital voice, positioning services, narrowband and wideband data modems and ALE controllers. MIL-STD / STANAG compliant functions and proprietary waveforms are offered.

We offer radio makers and equipment manufacturers the following capabilities:

  • HF Data Modems
  • VHF/UHF Data Modems
  • Wideband HF Data Modems
  • ALE Controllers
  • Embedded Functions for Secure Voice and Data

Associated Services

Embedded Product Integration Support

For radio makers interested in adding advanced HF data modem & ALE capabilities to their existing HF radio product range, we can customise the small form factor TC4 HF Data Modem Module in the shape of a plug-in option board for the radio. We work closely with the radio maker’s engineers to ensure smooth integration of the option board into the radio.

Product Adaptation Services

We can allocate teams to adapt our HF and VHF embedded communication technology for integration into existing client products or systems resulting in extended life and functionality.

Transfer of Technology

RapidM creates world leading digital radio technology for HF, VHF and UHF products. Transferring technology enables the makers of radio and communication equipment to boost development capabilities, reduce cost and reduce time to market. Technology transfers are backed up by through-life support from versatile DSP engineering teams.

Training

RapidM technical personnel offer training on a variety of topics including HF communication principles, simulation practices, product use and standardised specifications. Training is customised to address the needs and expectations of the client. Training presented early in a project allows our customers to make well-informed decisions.
