The narrowband system based on COMP@N radios

Current requirements of the modern battlefield, with all limitations of available radio ressources, determine the need to use various types of radios working with many types of waveforms (WF). Fulfilling of these expectations is a challenge that can only be achieved by a radio communication system, for which the main goal is to provide a comprehensive implementation of user’s services while taking into account the limitations of the planning spectrum.
COMP@N family radios provide a comprehensive security in the range of TRANSEC, NETSEC and COMSEC mechanisms based on AES-256 algorithms and additional usage of SCIP technology (STANAG 5068).

Main features

Data services IP data
serial data
sensor data
data for BMS systems —> Situation Awareness / GPS
Voice services analog voice
digital voice (which suports the flat and vertical structure)
Management services remote (e.g. SNMP v3)
local (e.g. HMI, Fillgun)

Capability to integrate with existing infrastructure elements:

  • other radios
  • other terminal devices (e.g. user terminal)
  • vehicle infrastructure
  • wired infrastructure (e.g. LAN)

Effective extension of narrowband system

The flexibility of the system allows for its cooperation with other currently use and future radios and communication systems. In such manner the core of the system is being complemented with additional services and possible operational scenarios. These are i.e. the functionalities offered by:

  • VHF tactical radios e.g. 3501, F@STNET
  • PRR personal radios e.g. 35010, PERAD
  • wideband radios
  • satellite communications (SATCOM)
  • on-board communication and integration system on the vehicle e.g. FONET
  • crypto devices
  • multisystem gateways e.g. PIK
  • communications with the UAV e.g. FlyEye
  • wired network infrastructure
