Spectre calling

07 May 2014

California-based Datron World Communications (Hall 6, Stand A610) announced at SOFEX that it has just delivered an initial order for its tactical VHF handheld radios to a customer in Africa, writes Sam J Basch.

“Delivering our new Spectre V HH2100V handheld radio marks a significant milestone for this customer and for our company,” said president and CEO Kevin J Kane. “Our customers will now be able to extend their tactical radio networks to the dismounted user with the same advanced capabilities they rely upon with the Spectre V PRC2100V manpack.”

The PRC2100V manpack and HH2100V handheld radios are fully interoperable, delivering secure tactical communications in the 30-88MHz band. Spectre V radios meet MIL-STD-810 specs for reliable operation in the harshest conditions, and feature embedded ECCM, COMSEC, and GPS location reporting.
