General Description

The ECS COFDM VLDR - IF Receiver has been specifically designed for reception of digital video transmission from ground based transmitters to an Airborne platform.

The unit comprises a modular receiver; a single block down converter and an antenna. The block down converter can be mounted on a mast or built in to a vehicle magnet mountable housing. Programming of the system can be from either the Remote Control Unit (RCU) or the newly released System Control Unit (SCU), allowing for easy flexible control of the receiver.

The VLDR - IF Airborne Receiver has been air certified to D160E standard, to allow installation into aircraft. When used with either the ECS 1 Watt or 10 Watt COFDM transmitters the resultant encrypted video link is extremely robust and ideal for surveillance in built up areas. The system can be upgraded for use in the diversity for up to 6 dB of extra gain.

The VLDR - IF Airborne Receiver is available in set bands between 1.2 GHz and 5.4 GHz*, in both Standard Definition and High Definition.

*Other frequencies are available on request, after consultation with a sales representative.
