VHF PRC 2080 - Barrett

New product

In stand-alone configuration, the PRC-2080+ is ideal for squad level communication requirements. Using either the supplied advanced handset or optional tactical headset, the PRC-2080+ transceiver can communicate reliably up to 8 km in open space (subject to terrain and topography), using the standard tape whip antenna.

Simple to use: For basic operation of the PRC-2080+, only the front panel controls are required. Field programming, advanced menu options, selective calling and group calling features are accessible via the PRC-2080+'s supplied advanced handset. The PRC-2080+ is an ideal replacement to the PRC-77 and its variants, which are now obsolete and susceptible to interception and jamming.

Users will appreciate the PRC-2080+ transceiver's solid construction, simplicity and accessibility. Maintenance is quick and simple with only three internal modules which can be exchanged without any special tools. All inter-module connectors are gold plated and there are no wiring looms or complex back plane assemblies. In designing the PRC-2080+, emphasis has been placed on ensuring low cost of ownership over a long service life. The transceiver’s software defined architecture ensures compatibility with legacy, current communication systems.

The PRC-2080+'s main circuitry is contained in three modules – the radio frequency (RF), digital signal processor (DSP) and power amplifier (PA) modules. A very high level of integration is used to minimise component count and to increase reliability. The embedded software is controlled by the DSP module, which uses a low current, high speed DSP core engine. Speech coding and all frequency hopping and encryption functions are processed by the DSP under the control of a host microprocessor. The RF module contains a high dynamic range front end with DDS (Direct Digital Synthesiser) system which achieves fast frequency switching times whilst maintaining low current consumption. The PRC-2080+'s RF design takes into account the hostile electromagnetic environment and achieves excellent ECM resistance and co-siting performance. The PRC-2080+'s RF, DSP and software design make it one of the most cost effective, secure, high performance VHF transceivers available in the tactical military market today.
