Barrett latest HF software defined radio

Barrett Communications has announced the upcoming release of its latest product, the Barrett 4050 HF SDR (Software-Defined Radio).

This new generation of HF transceiver combines Software-Defined Radio technology with the intuitive ‘ease of use’ that has become synonymous with the Barrett name. With its unique user-friendly touch screen interface it is aimed at a broad market including peacekeeping, law enforcement and security organisations, humanitarian and non-government organisations (NGO) and commercial businesses.

IP network connectivity makes integration with existing networks simple, while on-board Wi-Fi allows for secure seamless operation and control of the HF transceiver via iOS, Windows or Android based devices or via Windows or OSX on desktop computers.

Mr Greg O’Neill, managing director of Barrett Communications explains: "The level of user accessibility at a local and remote level is a highly significant technological advance in the HF radio communications market. This can all be achieved while still providing secure communications via encryption, or frequency hopping options."
