Interoperability Gateway Devices Improve In-building 2-Way Radio Coverage

ACU-M Gateway Improving Radio CoverageJPS Interoperability Solutions has a long history of mission critical radio communications connectivity. The JPS ACU-M interoperability gateway console is an excellent tool to quickly improve in-buildingRaytheon ACU-M Interoperability Console coverage for first responders. It is compatible with the JPS ACU-1000 and the ACU-T.

The JPS ACU-M provides interconnection with up to four different 2-way radios, optional 2 VoIP channels, and a local operator handset. Plug-in cables are available for virtually every 2-way radio, satellite, and cell phone in use. The ACU-M can be networked and managed remotely using a computer with the included graphical user interface software.

Set up ACU-M as a Portable Repeater for Communications in Basements

The JPS ACU-M can be installed in a first-arriving command vehicle or waterproof carry case. Below grade basements that prevent RF penetration can be improved using long radio interface cables connected with the ACU-M gateway repeater. By attaching a portable radio to the end of a very long radio interface cable, the radio can be lowered into a tunnel or RF-blocked structure to provide a means of routing the signal in and out of the structure.

Use WiFi Network with ACU-M for Long Distance Radio Interoperability

Using the ACU-M’s VoIP’s option, a radio can be connected using WiFi or an ethernet Raytheon NXU-2A Network Extension Unitbridge and a NXU-2A radio interface. The JPS NXU-2A is a device that converts VoIP/RoIP into audio signals compatible with the remote radio. It uses the same plug-in radio-specific cable as the ACU-M.

ACU-M using WiFi and NXU-2A

ACU-M Easy to Deploy – Simple User Interface

The ACU-M is pre-programmed with factory optimized settings for most radio models and manufacturers. Just connect up to four radios with the proper cables and you will be operational in minutes. Touch controls and indicator lights make it easy to patch nets quickly. Remote control software is included too and can be installed on a connected laptop if you prefer.

ACU-M Control Panel and Indicator Lights

6/1/16 Update: Raytheon closed the JPS division on 1/29/16 after many years of providing interoperbility solutions. In April, the assets were purchased by Don Scott, one of the original founders of JPS. Key staff and support personnel returned and operations are returning to normal.

How To Choose a 3M Peltor COMTAC Tactical Headset For Military and SWAT Teams

Answer These 5 Questions to Select the Correct Headset

Communications for High Noise AreasSelecting the correct COMTAC tactical headset for your police SWAT team or military unit can be confusing. There are hundreds of choices and it can take a long time to research them. In order to make the right decision faster 3M Peltor developed a list of questions to guide you to the correct model.

Question 1:  Cover Your Ears or Select Hybrid that Uses Earplugs?Over the Ear or Earplug

Tactical electronic headsets that provide situational awareness have small microphones mounted on the earcups that instantly block harmful noise. The COMTAC III has the traditional earcups but now 3M offers the COMTAC IV with earplugs that provide additional comfort in hot environments. Both are designed to fit under a ballistic helmet.

Question 2: Band Style – How Will You Wear it? Headband, Neckband, and ARC

The COMTAC III is available in three different styles. The most popular is the headband, over-the-head style. Headband style is foldable when not in use and has been preferred by most military and law enforcement teams.

If you prefer to wear your headset behind-the-head, 3M provides a neckband version. *Neckband is only available with COMTAC III.

3M recently introduced a third configuration – COMTAC III ARC. Designed for the Ops-Core FAST Helmet, the mounting mechanism clips to the Accessory Rail Connector.

Question 3: Radio Communications? More than One?Single, Dual, or Split Audio Communications

Depending on your mission and the need for interoperability, COMTAC headsets can connect to one or two different 2-way radios. Single COMM terminates in a NATO wired U/174 quick-disconnect plug designed for the appropriate radio adapter needed. One two-way radio is supported.

If your agency or mission requires interoperability with teams using different two-way radios, a Dual COMM headset will allow you to connect two different radios to your headset.  Each COMTAC headset earcup will have a short cord with NATO wired U/174 plugs. Two adapters are required and you can talk on either or both radios using either PTT button.

A Dual COMM with split audio is also available for special military applications using a dual PTT adapter.

Question 4: Choose Available Color?OD green, coyote brown, black, foliage green Headsets

Most COMTAC III headsets are available in four different colors. The last two letters of the model number indicate the headset color.

SV indicates black and is the only difference between a COMTAC and a SWAT-TAC.

CY indicates coyote brown, GN is O.D. or olive drab green, and FG is a lighter foliage green. Foliage green is not available with COMTAC IV.

Depending on the model, some colors are special order.

Question 5: What Radio or Intercom Are You Connecting?FL5000-02 Series With NATO Wiring

To choose the correct adapter you need to know the radio manufacturer (Motorola, Kenwood, Harris) and the specific model ( APX 6000, XTS 5000, etc).

COMTAC headsets are only compatible with NATO wired adapters. The specific model number should have “-02” end the end (i.e. FL5063-02). It is not possible to modify the adapter if it is wrong.

Visit our 3M Peltor headset store for the best selection of 2-way radio hearing protection accessories. We also have all of the 3M NATO adapters online for easy ordering. Contact us if you need help by using the the form below.

Micom 3 HF-SSB Radios Provide Long Range Emergency Communications

Micom HF Radio LogoThe Micom HF-SSB radio was developed by Motorola in Schaumburg almost 40 years ago to support long range communications without costly infrastructure. Today there are thousands of Micom radios in operation by military, government agencies, civil air patrol, and petroleum companies. A few years ago Motorola sold the division to Elbit Systems, Ltd. and manufacturing continues with the highest standards along with support.

Micom HF-SSB Radios Are MIL-STD-810F and JITC CertifiedMicom 3F HF-SSB Radio

Micom products incorporate the most advanced HF SSB radio technology and latest features available. The radios are JITC certified, MIL-STD-810F, ALE per MIL-STD-188-141B, FED-STD-1045, and a MTBF of 27,000+ hours.

Voice and Data Coverage From 0 to 3,000 Miles

HF NVIS Radio PropagationMicom radios operate within the 1.6 – 30 MHz HF frequency band and use the earth’s ionosphere to bounce the radio waves over long distances. Normal groundwave propagation is limited to about 35 miles and longer skywave range has been unpredictable. An advanced feature called Automatic Link Establishment (ALE) selects the best frequency depending on atmospheric conditions resulting in dependable long distance communications without any repeaters or relays.

High frequency (HF) communications has difficulty with transmissions between approximately 35 -110 miles causing a dead zone. If you require coverage between these distances, a NVIS mobile antenna is needed. By adjusting the radials horizontally, the dead areas can be filled in providing a “poor man’s satellite system”.

Micom radios are also capable of transmitting data such as faxes and email at 300 – 9600 baud at an additional cost.

Contact Magnum Electronics for Micom HF SSB Radios

The Micom 3F and Micom 3T are the most popular models and we can provide pricing for all Micom 3 radios and accessories. Contact us using the form below or call us during normal business hours M-F 8-5PM EST at 302-734-9250.
