The level of noise reduction can be easily selected to suit prevailing conditions. ■[Automatic antenna tuner]-Whips and untuned wire antennas are simply deployed using the inbuilt, fully automatic antenna tuner. For temporary fixed station and tunable tactical antennas are available. ■[Intuitive operation]- Glocom’s well known intuitive operator interface ensures that operating the GR-150 very simple. Principal key functions are performed using a keyboard array mounted on the front panel. The operator is guided by 128x32 LCD graphics display. The display has adjustable backlighting, allowing maintenance of night vision or high levels of luminescence in poor visibility. Network station addresses and radio numbers are stored

in easily accessible address books and as little as two key strokes will initiate a call. ■[Extended operation time]-The low current consumption of the GR-150 radio enables it to operate for over 20 hours on one battery pack. Spare quick change battery packs are small and lightweight. The battery packs contains the charger management system and can be charged when connected to the radio or separately with charger including grid charger, solar charger. ■[Automatice Link Establishment(ALE)]-The GR-150 is available with full MIL-STD-188B ALE. When selected, the radio searches and selects the best channels. ■[Digital Encryption and scrambling]-The GR-150 can be fitted with a variety of scrambling and digital encryption functions for voice and data security. The GR-150 includes secure calling(an innovative narrow band voice scrambler providing secure point to point or point to multipoint communication), AES 256 bit digital encryption assuring secure voice and data operation ■[Frequency Hopping]-The unique, easy to use frequency hopping function requires no central synchronization station, has short entry or late entry time delay and requires no hopping handshakes. Hopping rate of 10 hops per second, using 25 digit hopping encryption key, and user selectable hopping bandwidth to suit the antenna type in use, the system provides excellent protection against Electronic Warfare (EW) attacks. ■[Modem]-The GR-150 fitted with STANAG 5066 internal data modems supporting high speed data and email transmission, with effective data rates up to 4800bps. Data modems are supplied with PC software which provides email, file transfer and short text message functions.
