Codan Introduces 3G ALE Waveform for 2110M Military High Frequency Radios
PARIS, June 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Eurosatory Trade Show, Hall 6, #D630 — Codan Radio Communications, a division of Codan Limited (ASX-CDA), announced the availability of third-generation (3G) automatic link establishment (ALE) in Codan’s 2110M series HF manpack radio. The waveform, based on the Standard NATO Agreement (STANAG 4538), supports enhanced data throughput and linking performance over noisy HF Skywave channels. Integration of the ALE linking protocol and the data transport mechanism provides effective increased data throughput and shorter linking times in difficult HF conditions.
“The 2110M manpack is still the lightest HF manpack available today, and features the longest battery life. It already offers embedded MIL-STD high speed data, second generation automatic link establishment, frequency hopping, encryption, and GPS. The addition of 3G ALE capability makes the best value HF manpack available today even better,” said Kevin Kane, president and executive general manager, Codan Radio Communications Division.
To fully exploit the capabilities of Codan’s 3G ALE waveform, Codan will offer a software applications suite enabling end user benefits such as email, messaging and situational awareness, enhanced by the benefits of the high performance low-latency waveform.
