The external frame is a heavy duty backpack with adjustable semi- fl exible contoured external frame as preferred by various professional and government organisations. Its modular design allows for additional loads of up to 50 kg to be attached. Two 5 litre side pockets and one 3 litre bottom pocket for accessories and storage. Includes a front pocket to hold an A4 size folder and the Getting Started Guide. Ergonomic shoulder harness with ventilation panel ensures maximum comfort even during long treks. Material: 1000 Denier bulked fi lament nylon, and co-polymer frame Standard colours: Black Weight: 4.3 kg (9.48 lbs)
The Codan 2110 Manpack series transceivers are a reliable, rugged and secure solution for your portable long-distance HF voice and data communications.
Codan manpacks are extremely light and deliver the lowest power consumption of any available manpack transceiver, meaning you can operate continuously on a single charge for up to 65 hours. Comfortable to carry and packed with easy-to-use features, Codan manpacks are ideal for all types of terrain and weather conditions, complying with the toughest environmental standards including MIL-STD-810F.
The manpack transceiver and battery compartment are made from lightweight alloys and high-impact plastics, both capable of withstanding immersion to a depth of 1 m. With Codan’s encryptor options, the 2110 Series Manpacks incorporate AES-256 or CES-128 encryption to ensure sensitive information can be communicated with confidence. Models in the 2110 series have an option for internal Frequency Hopping to prevent third party interference and monitoring of classified communications.
Radio equipment that is compatible with P25 standards will allow users from different agencies or areas to communicate directly with each other. This will allow agencies on the federal state/provincial or local level (or any other agency) to communicate more effectively with each other when required (emergencies, law enforcement, etc.)
The P25 open standard will allow competing products from multiple vendors to be interoperable. This will allow customers of the P25 product to beneﬁt from multiple manufacturing sources (decreased costs, open bidding, non-proprietary systems).
A basic requirement for Phase 1 P25 digital radio equipment is backward compatibility with standard analog FM radios. This supports an orderly migration into mixed analog and digital systems, enabling users to gradually trade out radios and infrastructure equipment. By selecting products and systems that comply with P25 standards, agencies are assured that their investment in the latest technology has a clear migration path for the future.
The P25 standard includes a requirement for protecting digital communications (voice and data) with encryption capability. The encryption used in P25 is optional, allowing the user to select either clear (un-encrypted) or secure (encrypted) digital communication methods. The encryption keys also have the option of being re-keyed by digital data over a radio network. This is referred to as Over the Air Re-keying (OTAR). This capability allows the radio systems manager to remotely change encryption keys.
Improved Audio Quality
With 2800 bits per second of the total 9600 bits per second channel capacity allocated to error correction, P25 digital signals have improved voice quality over standard analog signals, especially at low or noisy RF carrier levels. The IMBE™ voice coder converts voice information into digital data and then the data is protected using error correction codes. The error correction is able to correct for small errors in the received signal. Since the audio is digitally encoded, the background noise typically present in analog systems is also removed.
WHY HF RADIO?
High Frequency (HF) radio is used for first-line and backup communications over long distances, mainly in remote regions of the developed world and in developing countries.
Government and private organisations are continually searching for the most flexible, reliable and cost effective solutions for their remote, emergency and security communications needs.
In today’s world of instant voice, email, messaging, fax and GPS navigation, what has High Frequency (HF) radio to offer? Surprisingly perhaps, HF radio provides all of these options and has several important advantages over other communications media.
HF radio will never replace fixed and mobile telephony as the first communications option for the general public, but for organisations involved in emergency, remote and military communications it is a vital and irreplaceable wireless communications tool.
LONG RANGE COMMUNICATIONS CAPABILITY
Whilst VHF and UHF radio is also commonly used for short-range line-of sight (LOS) communications, only HF is capable of communicating over distances of 3000 km or more.
MINIMAL INFRASTRUCTURE REQUIREMENTS
Unlike conventional, Voice over IP (VoIP), cellular and satellite telephony, which all rely upon land-based infrastructure, an HF radio network requires minimal infrastructure. As such it is often the only reliable means of communication when disaster strikes.
HF radio is simple and quick to deploy and provides communications capability for users no matter where they are. Fixed base stations can be used to communicate with other bases or to provide command and control for mobile (vehicle-mounted) and portable (manpack) users in the field.
HF radio can be used to communicate with existing VHF and UHF radio systems, cellular telephones and land-based telephones through developments in cross-patching technology that make this as easy as dialling a telephone number.
LOW COST OF OWNERSHIP
Compared with satellite telephony, the most common alternative technology for communications of last resort, HF radio is the economical choice. Once the initial investment in equipment is made, there are no call costs or ongoing monthly line or equipment rentals. Also, HF radio equipment is built tough to withstand the extreme conditions, which proves to be very cost-effective.
COMMAND AND CONTROL
The nature of emergency planning requires that simultaneous communications be made to and amongst a number of operators in a command and control style network. This facilitates situational awareness amongst the users and external organisations that can also be included in the network. HF radio provides this capability in all base station, mobile (vehicle-mounted) and portable manpack configurations of the radio network.
SECURITY OF COMMUNICATIONS
Where communications are sensitive, HF radio offers technologies to ensure the security of voice and data transmissions. The military uses HF radio as its primary communications medium and from the military have come a number of enhancements in voice encryption and frequency hopping which guarantee secure communications. For non-military use, different levels of encryption are available to suit the individual organisation’s security requirements.
WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HIGH FREQUENCY (HF) & LAND MOBILE RADIO (LMR)?
The main difference between HF and LMR is the frequency range:
The HF frequency band is 3 – 30 MHz. HF radios are long range radios capable of communicating beyond-line-of-sight (BLOS) without pre-installed infrastructure.
LMR encapsulates the VHF (30 – 300 MHz), UHF (300 – 3000 MHz) and 700 MHz, 800 MHz and 900 MHz frequency ranges. LMR equipment such as handheld or vehicle radios are generally limited to line-of-sight, up to around 50 kms (30 miles). LMR systems often use a network of repeaters to produce greater range.
