How robust is the Barrett 4050 HF SDR transceiver?

For those working in field operations, interrupted communication can threaten the success of squad movements and compromise safety. For this reason, it’s vital to invest in equipment that withstands both environmental and physical pressures of missions while maintaining a high level of security. Enter the Barrett 4050 HF SDR transceiver, a robust and intuitive equipment with an unparalleled standard of operation and contact.

The crown jewel of the Barrett Communications range, the 4050 HF SDR transceiver is designed to work in a range of conditions.

Secure contact, uninterrupted

The pinnacle of the Barrett Communications range of products, the 4050 HF SDR transceiver is at the forefront of intelligent radio solutions. This is due to the advanced security features that make transmissions near impossible to intercept by outside parties. Such security features include:

• Frequency Hopping
The Barrett 4050 HF SDR transceiver is equipped with frequency hopping capability, where audio data is broadcasted over rapidly changing frequencies. Such transmissions can only be decoded by receiving radios programmed to follow the corresponding pattern. This method of broadcast is nearly impossible to intercept by outside parties.

• Secure Call
Simple, but effective, the secure call option requires a four-digit PIN code used by both parties – without access to this key, the transmission cannot be received. This isn’t limited to point-to-point contact, as it can be used for group communications, incredibly useful when coordinating movements with multiple teams.
Beyond security, the interoperability of this equipment cannot be underestimated. The ability to connect into an IP network means that this equipment is readily operable with smartphones, tablets and PCs, through both WiFi and cellular data connection.

Powerfully robust

It’s no secret that the Barrett Communications’ team prides themselves on creating robust and rugged equipment built to withstand a myriad of conditions, and the 4050 HF SDR is no exception. This transceiver is constructed to meet MIL-STD-810G, guidelines set by the United States Department of Defence for military devices. This means that this device will function in a range of temperatures and altitudes, and can survive shocks, drops and vibrations.

The Barrett 4050 HF SDR transceiver readily links with smartphones, and can be remote controlled by these devices.

Easy operation

Though packed with countless features and functions, the 4050 HF SDR transceiver is anything but complicated. Built with an intuitive, user friendly interface, the controls of this transceiver are relatively universal, and easily visible through the high definition 24-bit colour touchscreen. With wireless control, the 4050 HF SDR transceiver can also be operated via smartphone and desktop link. Furthermore, each radio is built with an array of language options, including English, Russian, Arabic and Chinese.

Wherever your operation may take you, the Barrett 4050 HF SDR transceiver is up to withstanding the challenge. For more information on what this equipment can do for your operation, get in touch with the expert consultants at Barrett Communications.
