Why Micom?

In the last decade, the world has been inundated by natural disasters, and man-made incidents of a magnitude not seen in many decades, leading to a loss of hundreds of thousands of lives, destruction of millions of homes and buildings and the complete ruin of critical infrastructures. These tragic events increase the recognition that impaired or lost communications coupled with a lack of real time access to critical information, can dramatically reduce the ability to recover from such disasters. During such events, most of the conventional communications infrastructures such as telephone lines, cellular phones, satellites and other two- way radio communications are either saturated or not operational. Many levels of government and public safety  recognize that HF-SSB communication  are paramount for providing vital logistics and command and control support during major emergencies.

The Micom-3 transceiver system operates in the 1.6 to 30 MHz frequency range in 10Hz increments. The radio receives and transmits Voice, Data, and Telegraphy (CW) using upper sideband (USB), lower sideband (LSB) and amplitude modulation equivalent (AME) and ISB (Independent Sideband for high speed data transmission).

The radio complies with all MIL-STD-810F and EMI requirements, and meets FCC, NTIA, and Industry Canada standards. It has been tested by DOD's Joint Interoperability Test Center (JITC) and certified for compliance with the ALE requirements in MIL-STD-188-141B.

The radio system can be controlled and operated from a remote computer by RS-232 and USB Interfaces: The USB connection is a USB to Serial converter allows connection to an RS-232 serial device such as a modem to a USB port on a Desktop or Laptop PC. The radio is also available with IP control which supports full functionality over a standard Internet link nearby or thousands of miles away.
