Ground to Air Two Way Radio Solutions
Icom have a number of ground to air solutions from handhelds, mobile and even base station units.
IC-A6E Handheld – Ground-to-Air Communications
The IC-A6E is our most dependable Ground-to-Air handheld and is very simple to use meaning that authorised staff can be quickly trained to use this radio effectively. The IC-A6E has a strong, water-resistant construction that provides reliability in all conditions. Both the display and keypad are backlit, which is a very useful feature for use at night. The IC-A6E has both 8.33kHz and 25kHz channel spacing.
IC-A120E Vehicle Panel Mount – Ground-to-Air Communications
The IC-A120E is a tough panel-mount transceiver especially aimed at airport ground crew and is suitable for installation in most vehicles. The IC-A120E features both 8.33kHz and 25kHz channel spacing, plus the latest noise cancelling and Bluetooth technology.
IC-A120E VHF Base-Station – Ground-to-Air Communications
Our IC-A120E aviation desktop base-station is perfect for any airfield that needs to communicate with both aircraft and airside vehicles from a control tower. The IC-A120E base-station uses mains power and can be connected to an externally mounted antenna.
Ground-based Two Way Radio Solutions
Icom have a range of analogue and digital radio products available in four types: handheld, vehicle mounted mobile, desk top base station and repeater base station.
- Vehicle mounted mobile two way radios mount in a car or truck and they use the vehicle’s battery for power. They will achieve better range by using an externally mounted antenna on the vehicle.
- Desktop base station radios use mains power and can be connected to a cable that leads to an external mounted antenna. The higher the antenna is mounted, the better the range. The vehicle mounted mobile radio are often used as base station by adding an AC to DC power converter
- Two Way Radio repeaters are essentially radios that increase the operational range of your PMR radio system. Repeaters can be used to cover areas in your business where a two way radio will not transmit or receive. A repeater receives the transmission of a two way radio and rebroadcasts it further. Every Icom two way business radio is repeater capable, from the low cost IC-F1000 series to the advanced IC-F3262D digital two way.
Two Way Digital Business Radio Solutions
Icom have a two way digital radio system called IDAS (Icom Digital Advanced System) that provides organisation in the UK with outstanding communication quality, security and coverage. The system benefits from advanced 6.25 kHz channel spacing which can allow twice the amount of users than other radio systems.
In addition, Icom UK have developed several security management systems that are fully compatible with IDAS systems and other different stress free solutions to staff safety.
RMS-Net Digital Radio Management System provides any organisations with efficient communication within the workforce and improved management of health and safety. This software solution logs all radio traffic onto a central database whilst desktop users stay in touch via PC. RMS-Net is incorporated into the following radio management systems, thus providing organisations with improved management of health and safety and communication with the mobile workforce.
i-READ Guard Tour Management System uses a specially adapted Icom radio to scan waypoint badges laid on a predetermined route. This information acts as a time date stamp/proof of patrolling and is sent back to a central radio base station and stored on a PC running RMS-Net.
i-LOC Security Management System uses strategically placed low power beacons around a building, which periodically transmit their identity. A receiver fitted inside an Icom handportable receives transmissions from the beacons when the user of the portable passes in their vicinity. This is then reported to a PC running RMS-Net
You want to listen and monitor airtraffic with our range of Airband Scanners. Icom’s receiver line-up is varied and has products starting with a simple handheld receiver going up to professional base station with some of the most advanced radio technology in it.
A new alternative, Icom’s IP Advanced Radio System?
Icom have recently launched its Icom’s IP Advanced Radio System which works over wireless LAN (WLAN) and IP networks. The system utilises a network controller and remote communicators/handsets and provides secure conversation via WLAN security protocols (WPA-PSK and WPA-PSK2). The system is totally licence-free.
The system has a huge amount of benefits but we see it providing further choice alongside analogue and digital radio systems.
There are strong reasons for customers to move towards this new technology including no licence fee, encrypted communication and excellent audio quality.
The IP Radio system can be used like a normal radio system with individual and group calling. The controller has the technology to make group calls and for putting individual calls through. All of this is done by allocating each individual handportable a personality on the system. It’s a direct replacement to radio systems with increased capacity, but using different technology.
In terms of installation, the system can be so much simpler. To put communications in a building you would traditionally use a distributed antenna system maybe including a lift shaft to get full coverage. Now with the Icom IP Advanced Radio System the process is much simpler as it uses wireless access points around the building.
