EPLRS-XF
Enhanced Position Location Reporting System Extended Frequency

A software programmable, wireless


networking system, the EPLRS-XF provides
fast, reliable tactical data communication
with wideband frequency operation in a
Type-1 certified implementation.

Features


Delivers crucial information to


the right place at the right time
with optimal security and
reliability

Designed for mobility;


ideal for mobile, dynamic,
infrastructureless environments

Supports a broad range of


missions by integrating
battlefield information systems

Provides position/navigation
throughout maneuver forces
even if GPS is unavailable

Ruggedized for ground and


airborne operations

Supports wideband frequency


for more agile operations in
tactical environments

Low cost, affordable for all


combat and combat support
units

Type-1 cryptographic security

Broad-Range Mission Support

Mobile ad-hoc networking


provides high-speed horizontal
and vertical communications,
effectively shortening command
and control cycle times. Because
EPLRS-XF networks do not rely
on pre-planned or fixed
infrastructures, task
(re)organization can occur
rapidly and the commanders
span of control can be greatly
increased.

EPLRS-XF provides a wireless


Internet Protocol (IP) network
for tactical forces on the move
using Type-1 security.
EPLRS-XF supports a diverse
range of applications, such as
low-latency voice, sensor
netting, blue force tracking and
e-mail. This allows EPLRS-XF
to support a wide variety of
missions from air defense to
maneuver control and beyond.
Quality of Service (QoS) is
maintained for each application
via Time Division Multiple
Access (TDMA).
