The RF40 Thoroughbred Radio System is a versatile system for secure tactical radio data and voice communication in VHF and UHF bands.

Its main features are:

  • excellent RF parameters
  • efficient utilization of the available frequency spectrum
  • high data rate throughput even in low VHF band
  • voice and data true MANET capabilities
  • dual voice stream with data in one channel
  • second physical radio channel with tactical Ethernet broadband data/voice Mission Module
  • optional SATCOM-on-the-move communication module
  • vehicular amplifier with jerk-and-run capability of the handheld radio

PN (RN): 2400.100.01

• multi-channel radio system
• simultaneous voice and IP data transmissions including video support
• decentralized, auto-forming, true multi-hop MANET network for voice and data
