The Badger™ from General Dynamics is a 2-Channel Software-Defined Radio that operates from 2 to 512 MHz. It is built using open architecture standards and provides a highly flexible voice and data communication platform. This radio is based on the long-proven Digital Modular Radio (DMR) that currently operates aboard U.S. Navy surface and sub-surface vessels, fixed sites, and other Department of Defense communication platforms. It is secured by General Dynamics’ programmable Advanced INFOSEC Machine (AIM) technology-certified Type 1 capabilities that secure communications and simplify the system architecture. The radio is being certified to pass secure voice and data at Multiple Independent Levels of Security (MILS) over HF, VHF, UHF, and SATCOM/MUOS channels.
The reduced size, weight, and power of The Badger™ enable it to provide a broad range of DMR equivalent services on small platforms, simplifying the logistics chain, and reducing costs. It is available in an enclosure that measures 11.23 x 22.09 x 8.82 inches and requires an AC supply from 100 to 140 V.
