The Glocom GR-8100HV HF/VHF manpack radio system reaches the highest level in wideband data performance and interoperability with fielded GR-150 HF manpack radio, GR-250 VHF manpack radio and GR-310 V/UHF manpack radio - to deliver information superiority on today’s battlefields. It provides continuous coverage from 1.6 to 60MHz, 20W HF and 10W VHF on the power of a single battery, and bandwidths from 3 to 24 kHz - with data rates of up to 120 kbps.

No matter the deployment scenario, the GR-8100HV ensures the transmission and receipt of critical communications. With its Glocom GR-150/250/310 interoperability, it easily integrates into existing networks to deliver secure voice and data. It provides extended range, operating over degraded communication channels. And with ultra-robust 3G waveforms, it provides last-ditch voice and SMS messaging in channels where legacy waveforms don’t work.

Incorporating enhanced anti-jamming measures and embedded AES encryption, all GR-8100HV transmissions are completely secure and reliable. The radio also features high performance automatic link establishment and data link protocols to provide fast, reliable linking and error-free data transfer - even under the most challenging channel conditions.

In addition to its array of embedded capabilities—which also include an internal GPS receiver—the GR-8100HV features a Software Defined Radio (SDR) architecture, which allows it to host future capabilities. Combined with its incredible processing power, this ensures it will continue to be state-of-the-art well into the future.
Providing all of these features in a form factor that’s more compact and 30% lighter than previous HF manpack radio, the GR-8100HV enables today’s warfighter to take on tomorrow’s missions.
