Washington, D.C. – In addition to route, switch, compute and storage modules, Klas Telecom announced today that the modular and scalable Voyager 8 deployable communications system now supports common soldier and backpack tactical radios. Mounting brackets, power, battery backup, radio relay and net management for the Harris Falcon III® AN/PRC 117G, Harris Falcon III® AN/PRC 152A, L-3 Tactical Network Rover™, Thales AN/PRC 148 MBITR/JEM, and Modular RF AR-20 and AR-50 amplifiers are now fully available and supported by the Voyager 8 system. The company says additional radios will be supported later this year.
“Our new Voyager Tactical Radio Integration Solution provides the ideal bridge between IP and radio worlds, without compromising on size, weight and power (SWaP),” said Klas Telecom Chief Technology Officer Frank Murray. “Users can now, in one airline carry-on-size case, have a complete route, switch, storage and compute network solution that also houses and integrates their data-capable tactical radios.”
Klas Telecom engineers have built into the Voyager 8 transit case and chassis a common, redundant, uninterruptible power supply (UPS) for all mounted radios and network modules which reduces cabling and provides built-in battery backup.
“The result is a lower overall logistics and operational footprint for our customers because they do not need to transport and maintain separate cases for batteries and radios,” Klas Telecom Government President and CEO David Huisenga said. “The Voyager Tactical Radio Integration Solution provides everything needed in one discreet, rollaway case.”
