SWave Enhanced Handheld (HH-E) is the new frontier of soldier radios, providing the smallest reconfigurable radio based to the market. Its dimensions, lightweight, power and versatility are all offered in an affordable device.
Designed to bring commercial smartphone size and weight characteristics to military-qualified battlefield radio equipment, the SWave™ HH-E weighs less than 550 grams and measures just 155mm x 70mm x 40mm.
As well as featuring a compact, light and lower-power-consumption design, the SWave™ HH-E is secure and military qualified. The HH-E make innovative re-use of previous SWave™ technology, building on its proven in-service reliability and performance. Through its ability to host both legacy and new waveforms, the HH-E can interoperate with fielded radios and C4I systems and is fully upgradable, providing a versatile and flexible soldier radio solution at a low cost of ownership.
SWave HH-E is a body-worn radio for soldier and commander use at either Platoon or Section level. It offers simultaneous voice and data communications at the tactical edge of the battlefield network. The unit provides a single-channel reconfigurable radio delivering wideband secure voice/data services for current and future tactical communication needs.
Compliant with the US JTNC (former JTRS) Software Communications Architecture (SCA), SWave HH-E supports both legacy and new waveforms, thus providing interoperability with fielded radios and new generation C4ISR systems. It operates in the 30MHz to 512MHz frequency range with 5W peak RF output power.
