Barrett Expands Range of Transportable Systems
- Date: 15th June 2022
- Company: Barrett Communications
Stackable, transportable and field deployable, Barrett’s range of Rapid Field Deployment Systems (RFDS) are field proven across the globe. In addition to the 4050 RFDS system (P/N BC405801) that offers HF and UHF/VHF crossgate operations, Barrett now offers tactical Hf and VHF transceiver and amplifier systems ready mounted in 19” 5RU rugged cases.
The HF solution - the PRC-4090 HF Rapid Field Deployment System (RFDS) (P/N 4090-08-01) – includes the Barrett PRC-4090 base station system, complete with its innovative and market-leading touchscreen handset and can be powered via an on-board SLA or LiFePO4 battery or AC mains power.
For added transmit power – requiring mains power connection - the entire unit can be stacked with the PRC-4075 Tactical 500W HF Amplifier (P/N 4090-08-05) to create a base station system capable of transmitting at 500W. This 500W system is available as a complete transportable base solution with the PRC-4090 RFDS (PRC-4075 Tactical 500W HF Transmitter (P/N 4090-08-10)) or singularly for use with the commercial 4050 RFDS option (P/N BC405801).
Like the HF solution, the VHF solution - PRC-2080+ VHF Rapid Field Deployment System (RFDS) (P/N 2089-08-01) – negates the time-consuming process of unpacking and configuring a base communications system in the field. Simply attach an appropriate antenna and the system is transmit ready. The PRC-2080+ VHF RFDS contains Barrett’s tactical, low-band VHF transceiver in base station configuration as well as supporting an on-board SLA or LiFePO4 battery.
For additional interoperability, both the PRC-4090 RFDS and PRC-2080+ RFDS can be modified to incorporate a 2064 Radio Voice Bridge (P/N 2064-10-10) bridging the connected HF and VHF networks.
