Patrol 2110 Manpack Radio

2110 Patrol Manpack Codan HF Transceiver Digital VoiceThe CODAN™ Patrol 2110 Manpack is the next generation of manpacks in the 2110 series. Building on
the quality and reliability of Codan Manpacks, Patrol has a new rugged handset that offers extended capability and flexibility to users for their tactical requirements.

The Patrol smart handset enables remote operation of the Manpack, with all the capability of the front panel now available in the palm of your hand. The handsets builtin speaker automatically switches to a loud mode when hung in its custom designed cradle meaning calls can be heard when the handset is not being held.

With second-generation Digital Voice and 3G ALE, you have the confi dence to communicate quickly and reliably without the need for existing infrastructure. The Patrol Manpack is extremely light and has the lowest power consumption of any available HF manpack, meaning you can operate continuously on a single charge for up to 65 hours. Comfortable to carry and packed with easy-to-use features via the rugged smart handset or front panel, the Patrol 2110 is ideal for all types of terrain and weather conditions, complying with the toughest environmental standards including MIL-STD-810F. The Patrol transceiver, handset and battery compartment are made from lightweight alloys and high-impact plastics, both capable of withstanding immersion to a depth of 1m.

The Patrol AES-256 or CES-128 encryption options ensure sensitive information can be communicated with confi dence. Codan’s 3G ALE option for Patrol enables robust and effi cient on-air linking, providing capabilities for quick and reliable voice and data communications, as well as enhanced GPS tracking.

Rugged Smart Handset 

Smart Rugged Handset 2110 Codan ManpackCustom designed to suit operational scenarios, the Patrol smart handset is manufactured from high-grade plastic polymers to meet users requirements for functionality and aesthetics. Built for the world’s toughest environments, the handset meets MIL-STD-810G environmental standards for shock, vibration, dust, humidity and IP67 for water and immersion. With an internal microphone and speaker, custom-built cradle, storage bag, tamper resistant fasteners and extension accessories, the Patrol smart handset is designed to give the user the best performance from their Manpack.

Designed For The User

The Patrol smart handset was designed in consultation with customers worldwide to ensure we meet their operational needs. The handset features a high contrast clear LCD which is readable in all light conditions. The keypad has been designed for reliable activation and use by a gloved hand and is resistant to contaminants such as sweat, dirt and grease; the keypad labels are resilient to heavy use, and the earpiece is ergonomically designed for comfort during extended periods of use.

Internal High Speed Data Modem   

The Patrol 2110 can be optioned with a fully integrated internal high speed data modem with AES-256 bit encryption. MIL-STD-188-110 A/B and STANAG 4539 waveforms are supported, with auto adaptive data rates of up to 9600 bps achieved. To ensure long operational use the internal modem auto-detects when a PC has been disconnected and switches to a power-save mode. 

Integrated GPS Receiver 

To enable the user to know their location, Patrol comes with an integrated GPS receiver which shows current coordinates and with the GPS Tracking option, enables monitoring of distance and bearing from other HF radios in the network. All GPS data can be encrypted so positions are only seen by authorised users.
