This item is a component of the AN/VRC-100(V)1 Advanced HF Ground/Vehicular Communications System. AN/VRC-100(V)1 is a microprocessor-based communications system. The AN/VRC-100(V)1 uses advanced digital signal processor (DSP) technology. The AN/VRC-100(V)1 receives and transmits on any one of 280 000 frequencies spaced at 100-Hz steps in the high frequency (HF) band (2.0000 to 29.9999 MHz). An operator can manually configure communications channels. Nets are pre-programmed as part of the communications mission load data. Communications are possible using either simplex or half-duplex operation. The AN/VRC-100(V)1 provides Upper sideband (USB) voice, lower sideband (LSB) voice, amplitude modulation equivalent (AME), continuous wave (CW), USB data, and LSB data emission modes. Standard and advanced narrow-band digital voice terminals (ANDVT) are supported. An audio data port supports interface with the airborne target handoff system (ATHS). Digital data interfaces allow transmission and reception of data from improved data modem (IDM) and data secured by AIRTERM (KY-100). The current source of this item is Rockwell Collins, Inc.
