Canadian Navy receive 85 721S radios
Rockwell Collins has completed the delivery of all 85 contracted 721S radios to the Royal Canadian Navy (RCN) fleet, it announced on 27 May.
The 721S is a drop-in, software-defined radio that can operate with the SubNet Relay at data rates up to 2Mbps in a 500kHz channel. It offers a replacement for the Rockwell Collins AN/GRC-171 communications system, weighting 60% less and offering improved capabilities. It is interoperable with legacy radios and has a new remote control feature, along with the Rockwell Collins Clarity technology that reduces background noise in receiving and transmitting modes.
Alan Prowse, vice president and managing director for the Americas, Rockwell Collins, said: 'The 85 radios, delivered on-time and on-budget, will enable the RCN to fit their main combatants and allow them to take full advantage of the wideband data throughput of their SNR systems.
'The RCN is a strong supporter and early adopter of the Canadian-developed SNR capability, which is now fielded internationally.'
The Moving Target Recognition programme ultimately aims to develop automatic algorithms that would enable synthetic aperture radars to detect mobile ground targets.
