The 9671 HF Radios are a new generation Software Defined Radio covering the HF 1.6-30MHz band. Software configurable architecture enables supporting various radio waveforms and EPM techniques. Beyond line of sight communication is made possible based on the latest HF technology via use of NATO STANAGs and Military Standards (MILSTDs). The versatility of waveforms and modes enable communication even in the most hostile HF channel conditions. With the use of technologies such as Automatic Channel Selection (ACS) and Automatic Link Establishment (ALE), ease of use is provided while reducing the need for well-trained and experienced operator.
The 9671 HF Software Defined Radio basically supports the following modulation types:
- USB, LSB, ISB, AME, AM and CW
The radio has embedded Built-In Digital Modem. Modem functionalities in the Software Defined HF Radio are implemented based on several NATO STANAGs and MIL-STD's While voice and data can be conveyed over a preset fixed frequency, it is also possible to employ an automatic channel selection mechanism which determines the usable frequency for communication. It is possible to communicate under intentional or unintentional interference by using frequency hopping mode of operation.
9671 HF Radio built-in modem (physical layer) includes:
- Digital data waveforms
- Automatic link establishment
- Frequency hopping
Digital voice coding/decoding is performed with MELPe vocoder and the data rate for digital voice can be 600, 1200 or 2400 bps. Digital voice communication over fixed frequency can be encrypted and data communication over fixed frequency can be encrypted or clear. Frequency hopping is the Electronic Protection Measure (EPM) for transmission of digital voice and data.
9671 HF Radio family has three configuration 150W, 400W and 1000W for Naval Platform and Fixed Station use. The radio has required interfaces for naval platform and fixed station services for voice, data, data link, voice recording, GPS receiver.
