Revolutionary way to get connected
We have built our CNHF Manpack to serve a number of use cases, all while being simple, secure and reliable to operate. The CNHF Manpack is a portable and mobile version of the CNHF rack mountable radio. It utilises the same revolutionary, cognitive, adaptive CNHF waveform to provide superior performance and ease of use equivalent to the CNHF rack mountable version.
Time slot to send message to base station – only seconds
In the northern parts of globe, the land border is patrolled traditionally on foot or skis. Patrol duties lasts one or two weeks depending on situation and patrol team must leave as little tracks as possible from their location. Radios that go along the patrol are closed and used only when the message needs to be sent to base station. Therefore, messages to the base station must be sent in seconds. Long patrols in cold weather set requirements to the radio. The duration of the battery is a crucial aspect.
Radio needs to be
- light to carry
- long durability of the battery even in negative degrees celsius
- linking time needs to be in seconds when needed
CNHF Manpack has extremely fast link establishment – less than 500ms. As soon as message is sent, patrol can continue without the risk of being intercepted. Built using the latest SDR technology, the Manpack has very low power consumption which in turn maximises battery life. Manpack is designed for extreme conditions. When the temperature goes negative degrees celsius the hardware around the battery keeps it warm and ready to use. In hot conditions the hardware cools the battery, which prevents its overheating. Being a true SDR platform, we assure our customers that new features and capabilities can be added as a software to their radio fleet.
The CNHF Manpack has a number of built-in features making it easy to integrate with customers´ existing systems. With built-in Ethernet, WLAN and an LTE modem, a variety of use cases can be fulfilled with maximum efficiency.
Manpack has extremely fast link establishment – less than 500ms.
Game-changing software defined radio
The CNHF Manpack is a software defined radio making remote configurations and updates possible. Our software CNHF Waveform has multiple game-changing features not currently found elsewhere:
- cognitive spectrum usage
- extremely fast GNSS independent ALE supporting over 2500 calling channels listened to simultaneously
- wideband HF data up to 300 kbit/s
- extremely robust modes are able to operate with less than -10 dB SNR.
The innovative multihop functionality ensures that a route from source to destination is always found. Lastly, as the CNHF Manpack also covers VHF up to 56 MHz, interoperability with legacy VHF FM radios can be achieved when required.
