Cobham Demonstrates Eagle Close Combat Radio at DSEi
September 8, 2009

LONDON, United Kingdom – Cobham will demonstrate its new Eagle Close Combat Radio (CCR) this week at the 2009 Defence Systems & Equipment International (DSEi) exhibition.

Eagle is a third generation, full duplex, ad-hoc networked radio specifically designed as a short range Infantry Section/Squad radio. It allows up to five talkers to speak simultaneously in a conference mode, and provides a simultaneous encrypted voice and data capability, allowing complete flexibility of use. Eagle incorporates an automatic rebroadcast facility which both extends its range and provides excellent coverage in urban areas.

In recent months, Cobham Defence Communications has secured several orders of undisclosed value for nearly 10,000 Eagle CCRs from customers in the Middle East, the Far East and Africa, with further orders expected imminently.

Eagle has also been incorporated within Cobham’s Marine Interdiction Operations System (MIOS) – also on display at DSEi – to provide improved communications and situational awareness for Boarding Party operations. Cobham’s new TacG2 vehicle intercom system will also be able to interface with Eagle to provide a dismounted, fully conferenced, wireless intercom system linked to armoured vehicles.

For more information about Eagle or the Company’s other offerings, please visit Cobham on stand number 969 at DSEi 2009.
