RC10 ARQ Server & IP Controller
The RC10 ARQ Server and IP Controller is a purpose-built platform for Automatic Repeat reQuest (ARQ) communications functions based on STANAG 5066 and STANAG 4538, as well as a Mobile Ad-Hoc Relay Line of Sight Networking (MARLIN) function based on STANAG 4691.
The RC10 is a companion product to the RM10 Wideband HF Modem & ALE providing the emerging Wideband STANAG 5066 ARQ Protocol Stack (WB-ARQ) with all the latest enhancements together with the IP Client. The unit has a bit-exact synchronous DCE interface supporting all the MIL-STD-188-110C rates up to 120 kbps.
The RC10 also provides a STANAG 4691 Network Controller, for fixed frequency ad-hoc V/UHF networks. In addition, the RC10 hosts a STANAG 4538 Proxy for error-free data transfer using the STANAG 4538 xDL (and xDL-WB in future) modes provided in the SDM.
The 19-inch rack-mount hardware units provide much extended product life and availability compared to PC-based solution.
