UHF Network and Comms Range Extension – Plus Ethernet


Enable your aerial platform to operate securely while networking out to the horizon

Optimised for tethered aerial platforms where size and weight are critical, HARC-Tactical connects all communications from the platform to the ground over one single-mode optical fibre in the tether.

HARC-Tactical transports the payload’s data, UHF radio communications, and the platform’s command-and-control signals over an optical link.  The link is physically secure, immune to interference, and essentially unlimited in bandwidth.  Unsecure, interference-prone, bandwidth limited, wireless links to your aerial platform are now a thing of the past.

Your aerial payloads can now deliver torrents of data to the ground.

Your aerial platform now has secure command-and-control.

And your high antenna for radio communications (HARC) connects UHF radio networks out to the visible horizon, while your radio stays safely and securely on the ground.
