Portable Tactical Radio System
- unprecedented interoperability between radio networks
- complete, secure, versatile, portable and suitable
for rugged environments
The FleetCom Portable Tactical Radio System 7000 (PTRS) is a
single ASTRO®25 gateway enabling multiple, secure Government,
emergency and military radio communication across incompatible digital
and analog radio networks. Now, response teams from a range of agencies
can readily communicate with each other in an emergency using any
number of security configurations, ensuring total control in a portable,
This light, compact system enclosed in an airtight robust suitcase
weighs just 30lb/14kg including 22 AH temperature monitored batteries
is versatile and extremely configurable. It can act as a 400MHz
or 800MHz repeater and provide simultaneous communication with a
remote site via link radio/s or with any combination of four or
more radio modules in nonconflicting RF configuration. The PTRS
can be preconfigured during exercises with up to 48 modes (256 in
the advanced model) to be event-ready, and reconfigured instantaneously
during unforeseen events. Priorities can also be configured into
these modes. An operator can remotely and securely change from one
pre-set configuration to another over air using DTMF signaling.
PTRS-originated voice prompts will confirm that the change command
has been executed. The PTRS also allows seamless connection of conventional radio systems
to the Motorola SmartNet™ trunking system including re-transmission
of SmartNet™ Talk Permit tones over the non-trunking radios.
This confirms to the operator that the trunking traffic channel
has been granted and the message will reach its destination. The PTRS can fully integrate with military radio using simple interface,
just a custom link cable, providing a gateway to whatever military
secure communication protocols the connected radio is capable of.
Multiple control modes are allowed for – ie, the PTRS can
fully control the military radio, military radio can control the
PTRS, or both modes can be fully active (requires customized software
development). Because the PTRS is manufactured with highest-quality industrial
grade components and modular construction, the MTBF is high and
MTTR is minimal. Optional accessories enable the PTRS to be deployed in rugged terrains
over long periods of time without human intervention. This system is available for worldwide lawful usage to civilian
or government agencies in any combination of secure or non-secure
environments via suitable, approved agents.
