The Barrett Tactical Voice Bridge (TVB) enables interoperability between completely different radio networks, whether they be HF to HF, VHF to HF or other variations in the most simplistic way. Connect your Barrett tactical HF and/or VHF radios to other systems with ease. Communication is established irrespective of band, waveform, encryption or protocol allowing tactical users to converge and fix normally disparate radio networks together irrespective of their brand.
The Barrett TVB can fix and fuse communications on an ad hoc basis without the need for complex centralised or backhaul links. Linking commercial or tactical radios and all types of telephony, the Barrett TVB is a powerful enabler for rapid regrouping or combined coalition operations. The ability to connect a tactical HF radio to a VHF radio (or any other type of radio) and talk directly through overcomes an issue for many agencies with the need for converged, cooperative and secure systems.
The Barrett TVB links radio systems irrespective of band, protocol, talk-group or encryption. Supported by its unique aids to security, management is reduced to a procedural issue.
The TVB is designed to simplify linking different proprietary radio systems effectively against the common trend of solutions becoming more complicated and requiring management overhead. Connect the 2 radios into the TVB unit and talk straight through.
The Barrett TVB’s design is a small and lightweight tactical communications unit, weighing 300g and meeting MIL-STD 810F for vibration, shock and immersion up to 2 metres. It can be operated with either battery or direct power, with average battery life between 50-60 hours of operational use.
Its size, rugged form factor and simplicity of use make it truly fit for purpose.
Barrett can provide larger multi-port devices for connecting more radios together seamlessly as well as the option to offer data capability. The family of fully compatible complementary products ensures the widest possible advantages for tactical users. Simple field cable interfaces provide the facility to rapidly extend radio networks deep into areas of poor coverage or enable remote monitoring, and a full duplex intercom system.
Remotely configurable, the Barrett Tactical Voice Bridge is able to rapidly change from a simple interoperability solution into a covert vehicle intercom, a simplex repeater or a remote PA interface.”
