NVIS HF systems on the move

RFE in collaboration with Harris and the antenna manufacturer Cobham,  has developed an HF NVIS communications system on the move for the Spanish Army. Using Harris transceiver systems based on the RF-7800H radio and using an NVIS (Near Vertical Incidence Skywave) half loop antenna manufactured by Cobham, the system enables HF communications in short and medium distance movements without direct visibility, using NVIS capabilities.

In this way the Armed Forces have reliable communications in zones with very rough terrain and with difficulties in linking by Ground Wave, such as in the case of Afghanistan, and even in zones where satellite cover is complicated or not possible, such as in zones with very narrow steep valleys, and very rough terrain.
