DSEI 2015: Datron Receives Order Middle East for HF Radio C2 Network

Datron World Communications, Inc. (N4-320), a US-based leading supplier of military communications products, announced today the receipt of order from a customer in the Middle East for a multi-year contract to upgrade all of their diplomatic HF radio and command systems around the world.

The new system will be for the customer’s global secure HF voice and data communications and will revolve around Datron’s RT7700H HF transceiver in 125W, 500W, 1,000W and 5,000W configurations. Datron has partnered with Frequentis Defense Inc. to deliver the command and control infrastructure. The program will be implemented in multiple phases with the first phase already in progress.

One of the key reasons this customer selected Datron was their trust in our company and in our capabilities with HF networks and system implementation.” said Art Barter, President and CEO of Datron, “We are pleased to partner with Frequentis on this exciting project to provide a mission- critical global HF command and control network that will continue to grow with the customer’s needs for years to come.”

Leveraging Datron’s RT7700H JITC-certified software-defined HF transceiver, 7700-Series systems have proven interoperability with other certified ALE radios to meet demanding HF requirements now and in the future. The 7700-Series transceiver has been validated for Link-11 compatibility to deliver maritime tactical digital information link (TADIL), and is IP-addressable for local or remote operation via Datron’s PC-based Virtual Remote Control application.
