The equipment is rugged, lightweight and is intuitive to use because of the Microsoft Windows operating system. The inbuilt cryptographic capability of the CWC allows any audio transmission facility to act as a secure path for data communication. The transmission path does not need to be equipped with a cryptographic system. The CWC is fully compatible with the PDT and if enabled with GPS provides graphical representation of location of PDT’s.
