BAE Systems unveils new family of networking radios

5th October 2012 - 15:56 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


BAE Systems has launched a new family of networking radios called Phoenix, designed to meet the evolving communications needs of the US military, and fill the gap between higher headquarters and the warfighter.

According to the company, the Phoenix radios deliver secure, jam-resistant communications on the battlefield via modern networking waveforms. The company has responded to the US Army’s request for a non-developmental Mid-tier Networking Vehicular Radio (MNVR) solution with its two-channel Phoenix-SC radio, ‘which meets or exceeds all specifications’.

The Phoenix family are designed to operate the Wideband Networking Waveform (WNW) and the Soldier Radio Waveform (SRW), enabling multiple configurations and providing full anti-jam modes in WNW to protect communications in hostile environments. BAE Systems has leveraged commercial technology to create a low size, weight, and power design that can integrate easily into the existing radio space on US Army ground combat vehicles. To simplify end-user training and adoption, Phoenix radios are fully interoperable with other Joint Tactical Radio Systems currently in use. 

Joseph Senftle, vice president and general manager of Communications and Control Solutions at BAE Systems, said: ‘The Phoenix family of radios offers the most complete MNVR solution for battlefield communications. With decades of experience in software-defined radio technology, BAE Systems developed the Phoenix radios with affordability, reduced size, weight, and power, as well as robust anti-jam capabilities, as top priorities.’
