Codan's Sentry-V 6150 radio provides commanders and operators with a feature rich secure voice and messaging platform that includes using AES in legacy analogue networks whilst maintaining digital features.
Available in handheld, man-portable, base and mobile configurations, Codan’s Sentry-V 6150 military band VHF radio provides a rugged solution for users who require communications with a tactical edge: designed and tested to all the environments faced on the modern day battlefield, offering users the ability to pass critical information across the area of operation in real time. The 6150 increases operational efficiency and awareness over VHF radio networks between forward deployed elements and operational command centers for those in the immediate area and back to command elements.
The Sentry-V 6150 is integrated with either AES-128 or AES-256 encryption in addition to analogue and digital scramblers. Encryption key allocation provides network security levels within the formation and improved protection complimenting the entire network.
Radio Programming and Management
Frequency, transmission type and output power can be preset for each of the 10 network allocations. Programming the 6150 can be performed:
• Directly from the radio user interface
• Through the programming software
• Cloning directly from radio to radio
• Using a Fill Gun
Complimented by emergency zeroise function the radio can be quickly erased in the field by an operator, adding an extra layer of protection to network security.
The 6150 family is integrated with either AES-128 or AES-256 encryption in addition to analogue and digital scramblers. Encryption key allocation provides network security levels within the formation and improved protection complimenting the entire network.
Selective Call Systems
The 6150 radio provides selective call capability between individual users or between groups of users. Up to 81 individual IDs are available with the ability to also create IDs for up to 9 groups, each with up to 9 members each.
Feature-rich, secure and supportive of legacy analogue systems, the Sentry-V 6150 is mission-ready.
Designed to IP67 for water ingress and MIL-STD-810F. Withstanding the toughest environments, Sentry-V 6150 is fully operational in temperatures from -32°C to +50°C and offers extreme temperature standby of -40°C to +71°C.
Ease of Use
The radio's controls consist of only two buttons and two switches together with a clear backlit LED display, providing a simple user interface and a minimum training requirement.
Worldwide-standard AES-256 bit digital encryption protects both voice and data traffic over the air. Frequency hopping provides an added layer of protection and resistance to jamming in an electronic warfare environment.
The Sentry-V 6150 is available in Handheld, Manpack, Vehicle mounted and Base station formats, all built around the Sentry-V 6150's main transceiver unit.
