RC66-C Radio Circuit Manager & S5066 Clients Suite – V3 & V4

The RC66-C STANAG 5066 Radio Circuit Manager & Clients Suite is a PC-based software suite responsible for the management functions of HF radio circuits employing the RapidM narrowband (3, 6 kHz) RC8/RM8 and wideband RC10/RI10/RM10 (24 kHz) products as assets in the radio circuit.

The RC66-C ensures the maximum online time of a radio circuit by taking responsibility for the radio circuit assets for configuration, control and status monitoring.

The RC66-C product is available in two versions, RC66-C V3 and V4:

  • RC66-C V3 is deployed with the RC8 (Narrowband STANAG 5066 Server) and RM8 Software Defined Modem & ALE products for narrowband (3, 6 kHz) HF radio circuits.
  • RC66-C V4 is deployed with the RC10 ARQ Server & IP Controller (Wideband STANAG 5066 Server and STANAG 4691 MARLIN SNR) and RM10 Wideband SDM & ALE products for wideband (3 to 24 kHz) HF radio circuits. RC66-C V4 also provides the management functions for the RI10 (IP-to-Sync Controller) products when used in split-site deployments.

The RC66-C also manages the operational system profile of the radio circuit, e.g., Data S5066 with ALE 2G, 3G or 4G/WALE, Data S5066 with WTRP or Data S4691. Radio communication links supported by the RC66-C include shore-to-ship, ship-to-shore and ship-to-ship maritime rear link (MRL), point-to-point/multi-point and broadcast modes for normal and split-site deployments.

The RC66-C has built-in configuration and control components for the configuration of the assets making up the HF radio circuit. Network-wide configuration is simplified using pre-prepared network configurations based on operational system profiles generated with the RapidM RCNP Radio Network Planner (datasheet available) application.  Local Node configuration is facilitated via the RC66-C MMI.

The RC66-C also provides STANAG 5066 Clients, (e.g. CFTP/HMTP and COSS) when not using the embedded RC8/RC10 clients to ensure interoperability with third-party STANAG 5066 implementations. RC66-C ensures the quick and accurate delivery of email, ACP-127, chat messages and files (email attachments or standalone). Delivery status notification is provided.

RC66-C is a Microsoft® Windows 10® and Windows Server 2016® application. The RC66-C software is developed, tested, maintained and built with continuous code quality and code security (CI/CD integration) workflows.
