Barrett announces manpack contract

18th August 2016 - 11:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Australia's Barrett Communications has signed a contract with the defence force of an undisclosed East African nation to supply its PRC-2090 Tactical high frequency (HF) radio communications system, the company announced on 16 August.

Under the first phase of the contract, Barrett will supply the system in manpack configurations. The PRC-2090 manpacks will be used for both voice and data communication, via Barrett’s CLOVER modems. The company will provide operator and maintenance training to enable the country to be fully self-supporting.

The PRC-2090 is a rugged, tactical HF transceiver solution for field deployable secure communications. It complies with MIL-STD 810G standards for shock and vibration, and can be immersed to a depth of 1m and operated in a temperature range of -40 to 70 degrees Celsius.

The Barrett PRC-2090 HF Tactical manpack is designed for extended portable field operations, providing communications with remote sited command locations. It includes all necessary antennas, smart battery and backpack carrying system.
