Using a manpack to stay in touch

Long range patrols, away from your typical communication channels, require communications equipment capable of long haul links back to base.

Foot patrols can utilise the new PRC-4090 HF Tactical Manpack Package, to stay in contact.
This equipment is both dependable and lightweight. The transceiver weighs a mere 2.95 kg thanks to the use of the latest lightweight alloys. The complete package, including battery, charging system and antennas, comes out to an easy-to-carry 5 kg.

Patrols of extended duration are supported by the latest battery and charging technology. The PRC-4090 transceiver utilises Barrett’s 16Ah advanced Li-ion battery for up to 64 hours of Rx-only operation. This battery is also designed for in-operation charging from either solar panels or a hand-crank.

Vehicle patrols can use the transceiver in a mobile configuration, utilising the docking station and obtaining power from the vehicle battery. Base station configurations are also available, ensuring everyone on your team is using state-of-the-art equipment.

Simply put, the PRC-4090 HF Tactical Manpack was designed with tactical missions in mind.
