Thales is introducing MSN 8200, a new Wideband ready naval high frequency radio, at DSEI 15

With the advent of Wideband, HF communication is set to become a bearer of choice and a viable alternative to costly satellite communication. As well as making HF a more reliable and robust form of communication, Wideband HF makes data rates of 100 kbps over 100 nautical miles a reality.

MSN 8200, the new radio from Thales, is designed to accommodate Wideband plug-ins within its modular architecture. This can be viewed on the Thales stand during the DSEI event, from 15th to 18th September in London.

Thales is a leader in the field of Wideband HF with its ground-breaking non-contiguous technique as presented at the annual High Frequency Industry Association conference. Customer demonstrations of this technique which comprise both the non-contiguous and 110C contiguous standard will be available next year.

Building on Thales's experience of designing one of the world's largest HF systems for the UK RN Queen Elizabeth Class aircraft carriers, MSN 8200 delivers excellent RF performance, interoperability with all major naval standards, and optimisation for the naval environment.

With Naval vessels typically having an in-service life of 25 years, and with one major refit during this period, the opportunity for navies to take advantage of new technology is challenging. Because MSN 8200 is form, fit and function backwards compatible with Series 5000 and Series 6000 radios, it provides existing customers with a viable and cost effective upgrade to the latest HF technology.
