Titan Introduces TTR-2101 Multiband Communications Systems

10/4/2004 - The Titan Corporation (NYSE:TTN) is announcing the launch of its new family of Man Portable Multiband communication systems called the TTR-2101 which have the most advanced combination of wideband RF front-end processing and software-defined radio processing elements available on the market today.

"The TTR-2101 family of radios includes HF, VHF and Multiband offerings through the use of interchangeable, low-cost RF amplifier modules," said Andy Ivers, general manager of Titan's Communication and Electronic Warfare Division. "The wide-band, front end processing elements and the software-defined radio processing elements are contained in the common processing chassis, a commonality that reduces training, logistics and ultimately total cost of ownership for the radio family."

Designed for military use in long haul or line-of-sight communications, the man-portable TTR-2101 features an integral battery, 20-watt power output for maximum range and full 2 to 108 MHz frequency coverage in the multiband version. While the TTR may be the smallest radio with these capabilities available, it is not small on features. The new Titan radio hosts state of the art processing including MIL-STD-188-110B data modes, MIL-STD-188-141B (2G) ALE, and STANAG 4285, 4415 and 4529 data modes. HF and VHF ECCM modes are also built-in. The advanced 300 hop-per-second VHF ECCM algorithm is no longer constrained to hop on conventional 25 kHz channels. The TTR-2101 radio it is built to hop continuously over the 30MHz to 108MHz band in steps as fine as 1 Hz.

For data security, the TTR utilizes the Advanced Encryption Standard with key lengths of 128 bits. The radio will support up to 10 unique keys each for Communications Security (COMSEC) and Transmission Security (TRANSEC). Each of these keys may be assigned to any of the 100 preset nets available in the radio offering total flexibility for network centric communication.

In the HF variant, voice is secured using the AES encryption and leading edge MELPe Plus vocoder, running at 2400, 1200, or 600 bps. The voice quality provided far exceeds voice quality provided by older standards such as LPC10e.

To augment the TTR radio family, Titan is also offering a 150-watt power amplifier for range extension and an 85-240 VAC power factor corrected AC-DC converter. The PA delivers 150-watts continuous power over the full 2 MHz to 108 MHz range. For reliable data communications both a STANAG 5066-based HF messaging application and a MIL-STD-188-184 based messaging application are available. These data systems provide error-free communication between TTR radios. In addition to working with the TTR, the Titan 5066 package will work with Titan's other HF modems, including the TSM-1000 and PCI / PCMCIA modems.

The TTR-2101 family and other Titan CEWD products are on display at Defendory International in Athens, Greece from 5 to 9 October 2004.
