Sat-Com Unique Leopard Radio
Whereas other high-frequency radio manufacturers will only cover up to 30 or 60 MHz frequency, the Leopard covers a frequency range from 1.6 MHz up to 512 MHz. The Leopard also offers Blue Force tracking capabilities and can transmit data as well as digital voice, which prevents eavesdropping – the standard internal modem allows for encrypted data transfer up to 2 400 bps. Optional modems can transfer between 19 200 and 96 000 bps.
The software-defined Leopard 1 multi-band, multi-role radio was designed to simplify modern-day military missions, Sat-Com said. By allowing frequency-hopping communications in the HF, VHF, and UHF bands, the Leopard 1 means soldiers do not have to carry multiple radio sets, thus saving weight and space.
“Now I have to carry only this one radio and manage all my communications. It is less weight and I am much more confident that I can reach and be reached,” a soldier said of the 3.2 kg device.
By carrying a Leopard 1 manpack radio, a soldier can communicate with other forces (land, sea, and air) over medium and short distances through voice, text, data, and e-mail with situational awareness in COMSEC (communications security), TRANSEC (transmission security) and LINKING modes.
