News: Defence tests Wideband HF Radio for data transfer

Post by vk6hgr » Fri Oct 30, 2015 10:39 am

According to Defence, WBHF can transmit data up to 10 times faster than current systems used by the ADF.

Rockwell Collins is the industry partner for the WBHF tests.

According to Rockwell Collins, WBHF can provide 240 kilobits per second data transfers without line of sight.

That speed could replace satellite internet for marine use.

Yep, very impressive. Probably attached with a just as an impressive cost, though.

Remember, Defence gets a very good budget, so I doubt they'd care too much!
