ITT Delivers New Spearhead HF Radio
ITT Corp. released its new tactical communications product, the Spearhead HF Radio.
The announcement was made by ITT Electronic Systems Value Center leaders at the bi-annual Defense & Security Equipment International (DSEi) show being held at ExCel London (13-16 September 2011).
The Spearhead HF Radio is a multiband HF/VHF transceiver that offers long range (beyond line of site) communications and secure interoperability with users of SINCGARS export versions such as the RT-1702 and the Spearhead VHF radio. The new system is a software defined radio with features such as advanced data waveforms, digital voice, Global Positioning System, Electronic Counter-Counter Measures, encryption and HF – VHF cross band repeater capabilities.
“By releasing this product, we are better positioned to deliver a more diverse range of solutions to meet our customer’s demanding requirements” said Ken Peterman, ITT Communications Systems President.
The Spearhead HF receiver/transmitter is available as a 20W manpack, or as the core of a 150-watt vehicular or base station system. Engineered for reliable operation in extremely harsh situations, the radio is a rugged unit that meets the demanding environmental specifications of Military Standards.
