General Description

The ECS COFDM Patriot Receiver has been specifically designed for reception of digital video transmission from either aircraft or ground based transmitters.

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 a handheld controller unit or a bespoke Graphical User Interface (GUI), allowing for easy flexible control of the receiver.

The ECS COFDM Patriot receiver can be used with a wide variety of covert and overt antennas. 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.

Mobile applications include:

  • Vehicle to Vehicle
  • Person to Vehicle
  • Uplink to aircraft and rebroadcast from either person or vehicle.

The Patriot Receiver is available in set bands between 1.2 GHz and 4.5 GHz*, in both Standard Definition and High Definition.

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