|L-3 Linkabit presents its PRD-13(V)3|
One year ago, L-3 Linkabit announced the successfull completion of comprehensive field trials of its next-generation PRD-13(V)3 tactical On-The-March (OTM) Electronic Support Measures (ESM) system. Today, L-3 Linkabit officially unveils this new version of the PRD-13 product line at Eurosatory 2014.
L-3 Linkabit's latest version of the PRD-13
The PRD-13(V)3 is the latest tactical ESM system in L-3 Linkabit's combat-proven PRD-13 product line introduced 20 years ago. This third-generation system continues the legacy of what has been the predominant tactical ESM system of choice for both the U.S. and international ISR communities.
"The PRD-13(V)3 significantly improves on our PRD-13(V)2 in term of size, weight and power, while maintaining the (V)2's known excellent performance," said Elissa Seidenglanz, senior vice president of division operations and deputy general manager at L-3 Linkabit. "We are very pleased to be providing the ISR community with a true On-The-March SIGINT capability that delivers even greater capability from a much smaller form factor".
Enhancements to the PRD-13(V)3 include software-defined processing, significant weight and power reduction, and an IP-based architecture that enables remote operations as well as networking of multiple systems. For PRD-13(V)3 OTM operations, an additionnal Android™-based handheld controller enables the system to be controlled through a tether to the processor or via a wireless network. The complete OTM system fits into a standard rucksack and weigh less than 32 pounds.
L-3 Linkabit specializes in providing tactical mobile SATCOM On-The-Move solutions, as well as low-SWaP and high-performance signals intelligence (SIGINT) and direction-finding (DF) systems. For more info about L-3 Linkabit, visit the company's website at www.L-3com.com/Linkabit.
