IAI to develop a Four-in-One Compact Tactical Radio for the Air Force.

Air Force Special Operations Forces, or AFSoF, are often deployed outside or beyond traditional logistical supply chains. Everything they carry is at a premium and comes with a trade-off. A typical special operations group would need a UHF/VHF communication channel for Close Air Support (CAS), a UHF channel for Satellite Communications (SATCOM), a HF/VHF/UHF channel to communicate with an Advanced Operations Base (AOB), and another HF/UHF channel to communicate with the Special Operations Task Force (SOTF). This would mean carrying four separate radios, each with different batteries and cables. IAI will develop ONERADIO to reduce the weight, size, and power consumption of the communications devices carried by SoF units, without reducing their capability. IAI will modify current radios to create one multi-channel radio that replaces the multiple single-channel radios. This multi-channel system will meet the communications requirements for Special Operations Forces. ONERADIO will be able to transmit and receive multiple inputs/signals simultaneously in a meshed IP network. The new system will be compatible with existing equipment and capabilities, including currently fielded radios, applicable voice/video waveforms, cryptographic key loaders, and batteries. The new radio system will also be easily configurable on the fly in the field by a typical operator with minimal training.
