 Barrett Communications PRC 2080 Multicam Webbing Pouch 640 001
The PRC-2080+ low band VHF transceiver is designed for multi-roletactical military and security applications. It is an extremely compact andlightweight unit which is simple to operate in demanding mission criticalconditions. The PRC-2080+ is part of the family of Barrett transceivers that are field proven in over 150 countries, on every continent and in allenvironments.

The PRC-2080+ Tactical VHF radio system is a military grade portable communication transceiver specifically designed for tactical applications. It is designed to meet complete immersion, vibration and drop to MIL-STD 810G.

PRC-2080+ 5 W VHF Tactical handheld

In stand-alone configuration, the PRC-2080+ is ideal for squad levelcommunication requirements. Using either the supplied advanced handsetor optional tactical headset, the PRC-2080+ transceiver can communicatereliably up to 8 km in open space (subject to terrain and topography), usingthe standard tape whip antenna. An optional multicam canvas backpack or webbing pouch is available.
PRC-2081+ 25 W VHF Manpack
Barrett Communications PRC 2081 VHF Manpack package 640 001
The PRC-2081+ 25 Watt Manpack upgrades the PRC-2080+ transceiverwith increased power and communication range. The PRC-2081+ is amilitary grade manpack communication set specifically designed for tacticalapplications and designed to withstand complete immersion, vibration, dropand temperature extremes to MIL-STD 810G.
PRC-2082+ 50 W VHF Mobile

The PRC-2082+ Mobile package provides a convenient docking station forthe PRC-2080+ transceiver as well as the flexibility for dismounted usewhen not in the vehicle (additional accessories are required to use the PRC-2080+ as a Hand Portable). The 50 W VHF amplifier provides rangeextension and increased link reliability when connected to the externalvehicle whip antenna system. The PRC-2082+ can be installed in a range ofvehicles including jeeps, patrol boats, APC's, and tanks. The PRC-2082+ isready for connection to combat net radio systems incorporating intercomharnesses. The overall size of the system makes it one of the smallest VHFplatforms available making it particularly suited to vehicles where space islimited.
PRC-2084+ 50 W VHF Base
Barrett Communications PRC 2084 VHF Base package 640 001
The Barrett PRC-2084+ VHF Base Package, provides a convenientdocking station with power amplification to 50 W, as well as the flexibilityof dismounted communications when removed from the docking station(additional accessories are required to use the PRC-2080+ as a HandPortable).
The VHF Base Package can be installed in a number of temporary baseand fixed command configurations and operated from a variety of ACand DC power sources.
PRC-2083+ 50 W VHF Re-broadcast
Barrett Communications PRC 2083 VHF Re broadcast System 640 001
The Barrett PRC-2083+ Re-broadcast system is typically used to link twolow band VHF networks providing extended range to overcomecommunication difficulties due to distance or terrain. The two networkscan use different security options (frequency hopping and encryption)providing a field deployable interoperability solution.

The re-broadcast system utilizes two PRC-2084+ 50 Watt systems andincorporates a nine band co-location filter assembly and AC/DC powersupply with battery backup facilities all housed in a MIL-SPEC ruggedized transportable case allowing for easy deployment in any field environment.

Communication modes
The PRC-2080+ Tactical VHF radio system has multiple levels ofencryption and frequency hopping security available. Analogue voiceand digital unencrypted data are fitted as standard. The following levelsof encryption are available:-
• Analogue Voice - Fixed Frequency (AFF)
• Digital Unencrypted Data - Fixed Frequency
• Digital Encrypted Voice - Fixed Frequency (DEFF)
• Digital Encrypted Voice - Frequency Hopping (DEFH)**
• Digital Encrypted Voice - Free Channel Search (DEFCS)
• Digital Encrypted Data - Fixed Frequency
• Digital Encrypted Data - Frequency Hopping**

** Requires an Australian Department of Defence Export licence.
Simple to use
For basic operation of the PRC-2080+, only the front panel controls arerequired. Field programming, advanced menu options, selective callingand group calling features are accessible via the PRC-2080+'s suppliedadvanced handset. The PRC-2080+ is an ideal replacement to thePRC-77 and its variants, which are now obsolete and susceptible tointerception and jamming.
Rugged design
Users will appreciate the PRC-2080+ transceiver's solid construction,simplicity and accessibility. Maintenance is quick and simple with onlythree internal modules which can be exchanged without any special tools.All inter-module connectors are gold plated and there are no wiring looms
or complex back plane assemblies. In designing the PRC-2080+,emphasis has been placed on ensuring low cost of ownership over a longservice life. The transceiver’s software defined architecture ensurescompatibility with legacy, current communication systems.
Modular construction
The PRC-2080+'s main circuitry is contained in three modules – the radiofrequency (RF), digital signal processor (DSP) and power amplifier (PA)modules. A very high level of integration is used to minimise componentcount and to increase reliability. The embedded software is controlled bythe DSP module, which uses a low current, high speed DSP core engine.Speech coding and all frequency hopping and encryption functions areprocessed by the DSP under the control of a host microprocessor. The RFmodule contains a high dynamic range front end with DDS (Direct Digital

Synthesiser) system which achieves fast frequency switching timeswhilst maintaining low current consumption. The PRC-2080+'s RF designtakes into account the hostile electromagnetic environment and achievesexcellent ECM resistance and co-siting performance. The PRC-2080+'s
RF, DSP and software design make it one of the most cost effective,secure, high performance VHF transceivers available in the tacticalmilitary market today.
