Description

This subsystem is an agile filter for the SATCOM frequency band, capable of acting as either a receive or a transmit filter. It enables simultaneous operation of multiple transceivers in extreme cosite environments. The ICE3001 provides multiple poles of RF selectivity to reduce broadband noise, harmonics, and spurious signals for either receive or transmit applications.

The ICE3002 is an agile filter for the SATCOM receive frequency band and is factory configured for an ARC-231 interface. It enables simultaneous operation of multiple transceivers in extreme cosite environments. The ICE3002 provides multiple poles of selectivity to mitigate interference from colocated transmitters and other spurious signals present at the receive antenna. This SATCOM receive filter is a highly integrated design incorporating complete Built-in-Test (BIT) capability and is qualified for use in military applications.

The ICE3005 is an agile filter/amplifier cascade for the UHF frequency band with a VHF bypass. It enables simultaneous operation of multiple transceivers in a cosite environment and is factory configured for an ARC-210 interface. This filter/amplifier provides multiple poles of RF selectivity to reduce broadband noise, harmonics, and spurious signals while still providing full output power in transmit mode and excellent selectivity to interfering signals at the transceiver’s RF input in receive mode. All transmit, receive, and bypass switching is incorporated into the two-port design. The ICE3005 also includes a separate audio processor circuit that mitigates popping and drop-outs in the R/T audio that are common in hopping or blanked waveforms.

The ICE3006 is an agile filter/amplifier cascade for the UHF frequency band with a VHF bypass. It enables simultaneous operation of multiple transceivers in the cosite environment. This filter/amplifier provides multiple poles of RF selectivity to reduce broadband noise, harmonics, and spurious signals while still providing full output power in transmit mode and excellent selectivity to interfering signals at the transceiver’s RF input in receive mode. All transmit, receive, and bypass switching is incorporated into the three-port design (LOS and SATCOM).

The ICE3007 is an agile filter for the SATCOM frequency band and is factory configured for an ARC-210 interface. The ICE3007 provides multiple poles of selectivity to reduce broadband noise and spurious signals from propagating to the antenna. The ICE3007 is cooled by an internal fan that draws ambient air.

The ICE3008 is a half duplex transmit and receive filter amplifier that provides cosite mitigation throughout the VHF band. The design incorporates a flexible control interface that can be configured at the factory for various radios (ARC-201D, ARC 210, ARC-231, etc.) and supports operation in fast hopping modes, such as SINCGARS. In addition, our MEGA-POLE technology is utilized as an output stage to further enhance the performance of the filter amplifier.

The ICE3009 subsystem is an agile filter for the VHF-L, VHF-H and UHF frequency bands. It allows operation of a number of transceivers in a cosite environment. The VHF/UHF Filter provides multiple poles of RF selectivity to reduce broadband noise in transmit mode of operation and to reduce interfering signals at the transceiver’s RF input in receive mode at Have Quick II/IIa and SATURN tuning speeds.
