Barrett Expands Range of Transportable Systems
Stackable, transportable and field deployable, Barrett’s range of Rapid Field Deployment Systems (RFDS) are field proven across the globe. In addition to the 4050 RFDS system (P/N BC405801) that offers HF and UHF/VHF crossgate operations, Barrett now offers tactical Hf and VHF transceiver and amplifier systems ready mounted in 19” 5RU rugged cases.The HF solution – the PRC-4090 HF Rapid Field Deployment System (RFDS) (P/N 4090-08-01) – includes the Barrett PRC-4090 base station system, complete with its innovative and market-leading touchscreen handset and can be powered via an on-board SLA or LiFePO4 battery or AC mains power. For added transmit power – requiring mains power connection – the entire unit can be stacked with the PRC-4075 Tactical 500W HF Amplifier (P/N 4090-08-05) to create a base station system capable of transmitting at 500W. This 500W system is available as a complete transportable base solution with the PRC-4090 RFDS (PRC-4075 Tactical 500W HF Transmitter (P/N 4090-08-10)) or singularly for use with the commercial 4050 RFDS option (P/N BC405801). Like the HF solution, the VHF solution – PRC-2080+ VHF Rapid Field Deployment System (RFDS) (P/N 2089-08-01) – negates the time-consuming process of unpacking and configuring a base communications system in the field. Simply attach an appropriate antenna and the system is transmit ready. The PRC-2080+ VHF RFDS contains Barrett’s tactical, low-band VHF transceiver in base station configuration as well as supporting an on-board SLA or LiFePO4 battery. For additional interoperability, both the PRC-4090 RFDS and PRC-2080+ RFDS can be modified to incorporate a 2064 Radio Voice Bridge (P/N 2064-10-10) bridging the connected HF and VHF networks.
