Creomagic will introduce its newest compact airborne radio at the Paris Air Show, which is taking place 19-25 June 2023.
The CreoAir-HP, which will be unveiled at the Creomagic stand A-64 hall 3, is designed to connect multiple platforms in joint Manned and Unmanned air combat Teams (MUM-T).
According to Creomagic, the CreoAir-HP has already been ordered in significant volumes by several leading manufacturers of military aircraft and UAS, to equip their aerial platforms, including UAS and loitering munitions. Among their missions, these systems shall operate in teams of large and small platforms, a requirement which made CreoAir-HP an optimal communication solution due to its compact size and weight, link stability and performance.
CreoAir-HP is comprised of a certified airborne radio weighing 800gr and a range of ground terminals equipped with directional tracking antennas, for various ranges, up to 250km. The radio supports simultaneous operation of multiple platforms in air, on ground, and on sea surface. An upcoming configuration of CreoAir-HP will also include an airborne terminal with directional tracking capabilities. The new radio complies with communication and military standards such as MIL-STD-810, MIL-STD-461 and MIL-STD-704.
Additionally, CreoAir-HP includes several world-leading COMSEC capabilities, such as Dynamic Spectrum Access, which significantly improves the capability to avoid hostile jamming and other ECM efforts, as well as high levels of encryption, frequency hopping, and operation in GPS denied or jammed areas, relying on RF-based positioning.
Alex Shapochnik, Co-Founder and CEO of Creomagic, said: “Future aerial operations will often combine manned aircraft operating in close collaboration with unmanned platforms in a variety of missions: surveillance, relay, ELINT and COMINT, and combat missions. The new CreoAir HP has been designed to connect these assets in order to optimize the potential of the growing Manned-Unmanned Teaming.
“Another crucial phenomenon of today’s battlespace is the presence of intelligent Electronic Counter Measures (ECM), operated by modern forces from all sides of conflicts. In some cases, the EW-affected environment makes communications much less secure and effective, in particular UAS and drones. The new CreoAir is one of only a few radio systems which can overcome such ECM and keeping secure connectivity.”
