TETRA, a cellular, trunked communications system, is similar in architecture to commercial cell-phone systems. Many governments are implementing single, countrywide, TETRA infrastructures as their new digital communication system for their key agencies. These include Police, Ambulance Military, Fire and other government users. • TEAs (TETRA Encryption Algorithms) are used to encrypt transmissions between all radio terminals and base stations TETRA delivers: Secure, reliable trunked and direct-mode communications, interoperability between agencies and the ability to send both voice and data. Interoperability is facilitated by the ability to make point-to-point calls between all users on the Network and through Talkgroups. The TETRA infrastructure consists of: Fixed base-stations, Switching and Management Infrastructure (SwMI) and the mobile radios (Terminals). 2 Photo supplied by Eurocopter UK Why Airborne TETRA? – TEAs are geographically-based. For example, TEA2 is used in the Schengen Region – Cobham’s core TETRA radio covers all four TEAs Cobham Antenna Systems offer: • End to End (E2E) encryption encrypts the complete link between the two ends of the communication path A proven core TETRA radio, offering full compatibility with: • TEA1-4 Air Interface Encryption Commissioning and Support of Airborne TETRA • End to End Encryption (E2E) • Highly Preferred Subscriber Class (HPSC) The UK is a World-leader in the implementation of TETRA and pioneered the implementation of TETRA for airborne use. Cobham’s involvement with this work since the beginning means that we are the most experienced provider of avionics-standard airborne TETRA systems. • Interoperability with any TETRA ground infrastructure Cobham has supplied avionics standard airborne TETRA systems for a wide-range of Government users, in the UK and Internationally. • Cobham offers a full range of support tools and services. These include: – Programming tools • Integrated GPS – Support for installation • Option gateway and repeater functionality A range of configuration options – Assistance with commissioning on the network, including loading air interface algorithms and radio customisation • Single, dual, multiple radio – Focused SLAs • Single or dual CDU systems, to facilitate operation from cockpit and rear-cabin – Obsolescence MMI tailored for airborne use TETRA in the Airborne Environment Equipment Summary NVG compatible displays • The TETRA Standard includes specific elements for airborne use. There are a number of additional features which must be considered, including: • Proven core radio – Highly Preferred Subscriber Class (HPSC) • DO160 D/E environmental qualification – • Standard Dzus/ATR LRUs Support services options, including: • Support for installation and commissioning • Software upgrades • Obsolescence management A range of support peripherals including: • Interface modules HPSC ensures that the airborne radio terminal affiliates to ground base stations specifically designated for use with aircraft – Cobham’s airborne TETRA range is HPSC tested and proven • Programming kits 1 – Software upgrades 3 4 • Operates on Motorola, Selex, Rohde and Schwarz, EADS and other networks • 28V DC power • Interfaces with standard aircraft audio system • NVG/NVIS compatible displays 136.5 REF 77 MAX 77 MAX 77 MAX 77 MAX 77 MAX 77 MAX 66.7 REF66.7 REF 66.7 REF Single/dual radio CDU 13 MAX 114 MAX 147 MAX 136.5 REF Weight 1.25kg 147 MAXREF 136.5 146.6 MAX 147 MAX1.25kg Weight 136.3 REF.
