BAE Systems completes demonstration of FireNet transceiver
BAE Systems has completed a capability demonstration of its FireNet software-defined communications transceiver. The demonstration showed the system’s additional channel capabilities for rotary-wing aircraft which will provide US armed forces with a unified tactical network enabling Joint All Domain Operations (JADO).
The system’s additional narrow-band, wide-band, and Link 16 capabilities provide rotary-wing aircraft with a unified tactical network described as crypto-modernisation ready.
Designed for current and future fleets, this modular open-system architecture solution also enables additional LoS voice, data and network communications from VHF to S-Band. The FireNet system is claimed to maximise flexibility with a small, standardised footprint, minimising integration effort for existing aircraft. It augments existing radio installations with a concurrent four-channel capability in a two-channel configuration.
