The National Security Agency has granted Top Secret certification to the Rockwell Collins TacNet Tactical Radio.
The standalone Link 16 terminal has a volume of less than 185 cubic inches and weighs less than 10 pounds. It features selectable power output of 1 watt, 50 watts or 90 watts. Cooling is by free air convection, which makes it suitable for any environment, said a Rockwell Collins news release.
“The TacNet Tactical Radio opens up Link 16 networked communications to a wide range of new users and gives warfighters the connectivity they need to successfully complete missions with increased survivability,” said Mike Jones, vice president communication and navigation products for Rockwell Collins.
