Codan Radio Communications has announced the joint interoperability test command (JITC) certification for its 2210 Envoy High-Frequency (HF) Radio supporting Codan’s position as a tactical communications leader with secure interoperable standards in support of the Department of Defense (DoD) and their partner networks.

JITC verifies product interoperability for all products used in the DoDs’ networks. The certification affirms that the Codan 2210 Envoy radio is qualified as conforming to the automatic link establishment (ALE) requirements of Military Standard MIL-STD-188-141B, interoperability and performance standards for medium and high-frequency (HF) radio equipment.

Furthermore, the JITC certification guarantees interoperability between Codan and other HF radio suppliers to establish a common waveform for ALE operation. This is crucial for humanitarian, coalition, and partnership for peace (PfP) operations during emergency responses and disaster relief efforts. Within minutes of a radio operator initiating a call, ALE selects the best frequency available and alerts the operators on both ends to begin communicating with each other immediately.

One of the many benefits of ALE is that it eliminates the need for repetitive calling on pre-determined time schedules and also the monitoring of static on HF radios.

"JITC certification insures our customers that the Envoy meets interoperability criteria with other HF radios according to the DOD standard," asserted Codan director of UN and US business development John Robins.

"Achieving JITC certification demonstrates Codan’s serious investment in defence applications to support the need for interoperable platforms between coalition and PfP countries."

The JITC certification confirms the 2210 Envoy radio surpasses the highest interoperability and security standards for execution in US military operations, UN peacekeeper and humanitarian efforts, and to secure communications in partner nations.
