BOTHELL, Wash., 7 Dec. 2011. AR Modular RF in Bothell, Wash., has received additional certification from the U.S. Joint Interoperability Test Command (JITC) at Fort Huachuca, Ariz., for the 50-Watt AR-50 booster amplifier for use the AN/PRC-117G military radio from the Harris Corp. RF Communications division in Rochester, N.Y. JITC has certified the booster amplifier for use with the AN/PRC-117G and the Raytheon AN/PSC-5D multi-band/multi-mission communication terminal.
The AR-50 boosts tactical radio signals from handheld and manpack multi-band VHF/UHF tactical radios that use legacy, proprietary, and emerging Joint Tactical Radio System (JTRS) waveforms.
The amplifier provides 50 Watts of output with as little as 3 Watts input and offers two antenna ports for line-of-sight (LOS) or UHF satellite communications. The system also provides a switchable low-noise amplifier (LNA) and a multi-position RF output level control. The small, compact, lightweight unit can run from either battery power or 12- or 24-volt vehicle power systems.
