Sentry-H 6110-MP Manpack for tactical operations

Codan’s Sentry-H 6110-MP delivers a rugged man-portable Software Defined Radio (SDR) solution for military organisations that demand uncompromised, secure voice and data communications while on the move.

Key features of the Sentry-H 6110-MP include:

Compact and lightweight: The 6110-MP sets a new standard for size and weight for HF manpack radios with ruggedness and reliability as a focus. It weighs less than 5kg including battery, with one of the smallest form factors available.

Intelligent performance: Codan 6110-MP’s internal SDR architecture comprises the latest-generation high-performance Digital Signal Processor (DSP), Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA), and system on chip (SoC) technology devices. It provides exceptional performance, and future upgradability via IP high power connectivity over Ethernet/Wi-Fi and USB.

High Power: The 6110-MP packs a full 30W RF power output in a high efficiency SDR platform that can deliver up to 55 hours of battery run time. With extremely clean transmit signal and industry-leading receiver performance, the 6110-MP provides exceptional HF communications clarity.

Secure Communication: The 6110-MP ensures your information and team remains safe and secure through use of AES-256 bit encryption applied to data transfers, digital voice and 3G ALE. An option for internal frequency hopping is provided to prevent third-party interference and monitoring and keep your intel safe.

Exceptional Digital and Analogue Voice Clarity: Codan’s Digital Voice technology provides significantly reduced hiss, crackle, pops, and multipath effects typical of HF, enabling voice quality similar to modern cellular phones.

Intuitive Operations: Codan knows that when lives are on the line, operation of the radio must be second nature. The 6110-MP provides an intuitive user interface that can be switched into various languages for fast and instinctive control.
