URC-300 Transceiver

Maximized RF Performance - Redefining Software Defined

The new software-defined URC-300™ Transceiver improves ground-to-air communications with an architecture that enables users to upgrade fielded radios as new technology becomes available. The URC-300 retains a familiar user-friendly interface from the URC-200 (V2) as well as many of the legacy accessories. Current features include:

  • Significant RF performance over the URC-200 (V2) for clearer communications during close-proximity operations
  • VHF/UHF AM Voice
  • 8.33kHz ETSI performance and CE marking for global operations
  • Customizable, software-defined platform enables future field-upgradeable enhancements
  • Designed to meet stringent FAA requirements

Features

  • VHF and UHF AM capability provides interoperability with a variety of RF systems
  • ETSI EN 300 676-1 compliant for both 8.33kHz and 25kHz
  • Separate DC input powers radio and charges battery
  • Optional accessories to power from AC or DC source
  • Built-in power conditioning replaces external filter accessories
  • Smaller size and less weight than the URC-200 (V2); ideal for emergency grab-and-go
  • Adaptable to many applications, including manpack, rackmount, vehicular and intercom
  • Side-by-side radios fit into a 19” rack for rackmount applications
  • Web-based configuration and monitoring tool for maintainers
  • Redesigned user interface with large, user-friendly display
  • Compatible with many of the legacy URC-200 family accessories

 

Future, Field-Upgradeable Enhancements

  • FM voice
  • 50W power amplifier
  • Additional accessories for vehicular, shipboard, backpack and rackmount applications
  • Cipher text (data)
  • 30 - 90 MHz frequency band
  • Remote Control Unit
  • ED-137 VoIP Gateway Adapter
  • Frequency agile cosite filter
  • Adaptive Noise Reduction (ANR)

 

Additional Certifications

  • MIL-461G EMI / EMC
  • CE / RoHS / REACH / Radio Equipment Directive
  • FCC
