Multiband Vehicle Adapter
Supporting Multiband Inter/Intra Team Radio
The Tri-services has identified as a critical shortage of SINCGARS radios. SINCGARS is the standard VHF waveform found throughout the Department of Defense and is used by all services when conducting ground operations. It is a frequency-hopping waveform that assists the user in defeating enemy signal intelligence units in their efforts to find and intercept our tactical traffic.
The Vehicle Adapter provides 50 watts of RF power amplification across the full 30-512 MHz frequency band of the MBITR radio set and enables rapid dismount of the MBITR simply with the push of a button. It opens up a broad range of secure and anti-jamming voice and data applications.Maintaining all of the functionality of the MBITR and the Vehicle Adapter, the VAA, powered through an existing SINCGARS mounting tray, augments the Tri-Services SINCGARS capa-bilities and responds to operational commanders’ needs for multiband communications to address connectivity and operations in urban environments.
This capability complements the fielding of thousands of MBITRs in use by dismounted troops as part of the Tri-Service Rapid Fielding Initiative program.
