The PRC-2080+ low-band very high-frequency (VHF) transceiver is designed for multi-role tactical military and security applications. It is an extremely compact and lightweight unit, which is simple to operate in demanding mission critical conditions.
The PRC-2080+ is a military grade communication system specifically designed for tactical applications and designed to withstand complete immersion, vibration, drop and temperature extremes to MIL-STD 810G.
In stand-alone configuration, the PRC-2080+ is ideal for squad level communication. Using either the supplied advanced handset or optional tactical headset, the PRC-2080+ transceiver can communicate reliably up to 8km in open space (subject to terrain and topography), using the standard tape whip antenna.
The PRC-2081+ 25W Manpack upgrades the PRC-2080+ transceiver with increased power and communication range. The PRC-2082+ Mobile package and PRC-2084+ VHF Base Package provides a convenient docking station for the PRC-2080+ transceiver, as well as the flexibility of dismounted use when not in the vehicle or in base station configuration (additional accessories are required to use the PRC-2080+ in these configurations). The 50W VHF amplifier provides range extension and increased link reliability when connected to the external antenna options and can be operated from a variety of AC and DC power sources.
The Barrett PRC-2083+ re-broadcast system is typically used to link two low-band VHF networks providing extended range to overcome communication difficulties due to distance or terrain. The two networks can use different security options (frequency hopping and encryption) providing a field deployable interoperability solution.
