PRC-2080+ Features
>> Communication modes The PRC-2080+ Tactical VHF radio system has multiple levels of encryption and frequency hopping security available. Analogue voice and digital unencrypted data are fitted as standard.

The following levels of encryption are available:-

- Analogue Voice - Fixed Frequency (AFF)
- Digital Unencrypted Data - Fixed Frequency
- Digital Encrypted Voice - Fixed Frequency (DEFF)
- Digital Encrypted Voice - Frequency Hopping (DEFH)**
- Digital Encrypted Voice - Free Channel Search    (DEFCS)
- Digital Encrypted Data - Fixed Frequency
- Digital Encrypted Data - Frequency Hopping**

** Requires an Australian Department of Defence Export    licence.

>> Simple to use For basic operation of the PRC-2080+, only the front panel controls are required. Field programming, advanced menu options, selective calling and group calling features are accessible via the PRC-2080's supplied advanced handset.

The PRC-2080+ is an ideal replacement to the PRC-77 and its variants, which are now obsolete and susceptible to interception and jamming.

>> Rugged design Users will appreciate the PRC-2080+ transceiver's solid construction, simplicity and accessibility. Maintenance is quick and simple with only three internal modules which can be exchanged without any special tools. All inter-module connectors are gold plated and there are no wiring looms or complex back plane assemblies.

In designing the PRC-2080+, emphasis has been placed on ensuring low cost of ownership over a long service life. The transceivers software defined architecture ensures compatibility with legacy, current and future communication systems.

>> Modular construction The PRC-2080+'s main circuitry is contained in three modules – the radio frequency (RF), digital signal processor (DSP) and power amplifier (PA) modules. A very high level of integration is used to minimise component count and to increase reliability.

The embedded software is controlled by the DSP module, which uses a low current, high speed DSP core engine. Speech coding and all frequency hopping and encryption functions are processed by the DSP under the control of a hostmicroprocessor.

The RF module contains a high dynamic range front end with DDS (Direct Digital Synthesiser) system which achieves fast frequency switching times whilst maintaining low current consumption.

The PRC-2080+'s RF design takes into account the hostile electromagnetic environment and achieves excellent ECM resistance and co-siting performance. The PRC-2080+'s RF, DSP and software design make it one of the most cost effective, secure, high performance VHF transceiver's available in the tactical military market today.

Tactical operations rely on HF radio to provide secure and highly reliable communications over long distances in demanding applications and environments.

Barrett HF radio is secure, autonomous and resistant to jamming than other communications mediums. Configurable as a manpack, mobile vehicle or fixed base station all Barrett HF systems use the same keypads and front panel, specifically designed for users who do not have, or need, a lot of training.
Low band VHF radio communications is specially designed for multi-role tactical military and security applications, communications where communication between operators is up to 5km.

Barrett VHF is configurable as a 5 W Hand portable radio, 25 W Manpack radio, 50 W Mobile, 50 W Base station and 50 W Re-broadcast system for range extension or for use in mountainous regions where typically VHF communications is restricted due to the terrain.
Barrett offers a range of interoperability solutions between radio and telephone networks, HF and VHF radio systems and options that are radio and crypto agnostic.

These solutions can enable users to re-commission legacy products with latest technologies or enable collaborative forces to communicate with little need for additional infrastructure.
Our turnkey network design team work with the client’s system requirements and produce an initial technical proposal which, once client approved, develops into the detailed technical document with system manuals and full installation programs.

Each turnkey solution is designed specifically for the client, with some solutions incorporating remote sited HF transmitters and receivers linked to landlines or microwave communications, operator consoles, custom built interfaces and MIL-STD HF data systems including 5066 stack based systems.
