We recently attended a search and rescue exercise in Pulaski County, Virginia. Agencies from two different jurisdictions, with incompatible radios, were assigned to logistics.
We recently observed a search and rescue exercise, which included military support by an Army National Guard helicopter unit. We made the following video to explain how the ICRI is used to improve communications and coordination, between agencies, during these type of operations.
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) conceived the Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) Continuous Trail Unmanned Vessel (ACTUV) program primarily for surveillance purposes, tracking the movements of enemy submarines.
An ICRI-2PMTM (NSN 5820-01-564-4593) and the PTSTM vehicle-mount power supply/radio docking station, have been integrated to expand the functionality of tactical military radios (i.e.: PRC-117, PRC-150, PRC-152, PSC-5, RT-1523).
The ICRITM is a simple, low cost, tactical solution to improving radio coverage in a wide range of environments using an agency’s pre-existing radios.
A representative will be providing briefings and demonstrations of equipment to the Pacific Endeavor 2015 conference/event participants according to the following schedule:
The ICRI – radio interoperability gateway – is capable of bridging/cross-connecting all models of public safety and military radios.
We maintain this compatibility by continually engineering new interface cables as new radio models are released.
To address the radio coverage gap, between the marathon starting line in Hopkinton and finish line in Boston, the ICRI will bridge VHF and UHF mobile radios (Motorola XTL series mobile to XPR 4000 series mobile radios).
The ICRI-2PM, shown below, has been fitted into a backpack, along with a Barrett 2090 HF radio and an ICOM F9511 VHF/P25 radio, to provide interoperability between the two devices.
