multiband inter/intra team radio


The AN/PRC-148C IMBITR radio offers all of the existing functionally of the current AN/PRC-148 JEM, plus the enhanced TrellisWare® TSM™ wideband networking waveform capability. This single, small, lightweight, rugged package equips users with simultaneous narrowband and wideband to support tactical command and control communications in a variety of challenging environments.

Reliable wideband MANET coverage ensures interoperability on both TrellisWare® and Thales radio systems, regardless of the environment; and the robust TSM™ waveform delivers superior voice and data communications across harsh multi-path and unpredictable dynamic environments, including shipboard, in caves, and in urban operational settings.
