Patrol HF Manpack for tactical operations

The Patrol 2110M HF Manpack provides secure, clear and reliable voice and data communications without reliance on installed infrastructure. The Patrol 2110M is the lightest HF manpack available, with a battery life of up to 65 hours. It can be deployed as a portable, vehicular and / or base station solution, providing interoperability with other radios in a network.

Key features of the Patrol 2110M include:

  • Digital voice: Codan’s second generation digital voice supersedes MELPe technology, providing clear and intelligible speech in the toughest conditions.
  • Rugged smart handset: Full functionality of the Manpack is possible from a tough handset, ergonomically designed to suit tactical operations and user requirements for readability, contaminants resistance and resilience to heavy use.
  • Long battery life: Patrol has the lowest power consumption of any available HF manpack, providing continuous operation for up to 65 hours and negating the need to carry spare batteries.
  • Lightweight and tough: The Patrol 2110M weights only 2.9kg, the lightest in its class. Built from reinforced plastics and aluminium, it is strong enough to operate in temperatures from -40°C to 70°C and complies with the environmental standard MIL-STD-810.
  • Voice and data encryption: Patrol manpacks include encryption options for data and voice communications confidentiality including AES-256 and frequency hopping, preventing third party monitoring of communications.
