RADIO COMMUNICATIONS: Military radio that transmits simultaneously on wideband and narrowband introduced by Thales

Thales Communications Inc. in Clarksburg, Md., is introducing the MBITR2 multiband inter/intra team military radio with two radios in one form factor; the handheld radio provides simultaneous two-channel narrowband and wideband operations.

The military communications device, which builds on technology Thales developed for the narrowband AN/PRC-148 radio and the wideband AN/PRC-154 radio, is designed to provide infantrymen with the ability to integrate into the wideband tactical IP and voice network. The radio uses the Soldier Radio Waveform (SRW) wideband channel while simultaneously maintains connectivity with existing military radios by using its narrowband channel, Thales officials say. The MBITR2 retains interoperability with existing fielded radios and addresses requirements for a next-generation, wideband, networking handheld radio, Thales officials say.
