Extensive research and development activities carried out in the HF field have led to design and production of a new family of advanced HF/SSB transceivers for fixed wing and rotary-wing avionic platforms.
These transceivers provide voice/data communications over the 2-30 MHz frequency range with ALE 2G/3G (automatic link establishment) according to MIL-STD 188-141B (App. A, B, C) / Stanag 4538. Designed to meet the most severe requirements, the family is composed by 2 systems with different outputs power (200 or 400 Watts) and a wide range of voice/data services in the USB/LSB/AME and CW modes.
Data communications capabilities include MIL-STD 188-110B Serial Tone Modem, High Data Rate (MIL 188-110B App. C) and Stanag 4285 Modem. The transceivers are also Stanag 5511 (Link 11) compliant.
The RT-200/400 combine high flexibility and simplified operations in reduced size and weight package, achieved through innovative electrical and mechanical design.
The RT-200, including receiver/exciter, pre-post selector and RF amplifier, is assembled into a single ½ ATR short sized LRU. The RT-400 includes all the RT-200 characteristics with a 400 W amplifier into a single 3/4 ATR short sized LRU.
Patented technology reduces TX power consumption by more than 40% over previous designs, reducing heat dissipation and greatly improving reliability. Both these transceivers can be interfaced with all the family of Antenna Tuning Units (ATU) matching any kind of existing antennae (loop, wire or notch).
