Transportable Vehicle Station
Self-contained Audio Communications Solution
The Transportable Vehicle Station (TVS) is a rapid deployable self-contained audio communications solution that incorporates S-TAG, up to two radios, a SmartPhone and a removable battery as well as all the audio accessories required to be a fully functioning system.
The VTS rapid deployment solution allows the unit to be hand carried with the ability to be “hot swopped” to a pre-installed vehicle seamlessly. For such installations the wired remote-control unit allows all the functions available on the S-TAG front panel to be made available at the front of the vehicle, with associated radio equipment located at the rear of the vehicle.
At the heart of the TVS is the S-TAG.
The Sonic Tactical Audio Gateway (S-TAG) has been designed to allow the connection and gateway function between a wide range of communications devices, mobile, portable and fixed and to be agnostic to the frequency, modulation or encryption methods employed by such equaipment’s.
S-TAG allows the connection of disparate communications systems to provide interoperability between organisations in any scenario where combined operations are necessary, but different communications systems are being used and is compatible with all commercial PMR, TETRA, DMR, P25, Satellite (PTT) devices and Military radios.
S-TAG can interface between 3 communications devices, 2x HF, VHF, UHF radios or BLoS satellite PTT terminals, in any combination and any PTT over Cellular (PoC)/VoLTE solution running on a standard SmartPhone, such as Wave, Zello or any other suitable application that allows a remote audio accessory connection via its 3.5mm earpiece socket.
Connection to SmartPhones can also be offered via USB (for compatible devices) or by Bluetooth, if a wireless connection to the SmartPhone is required. S-TAG provides a USB charge output for the SmartPhone to ensure its battery remains charged and power for S-TAG can be provided either from the connected devices or a separate DC supply.
No additional license or costs are required to allow the use of all 3 ports.
Various additional packaged solutions are also available, including the integration of S-TAG into mobile radio transportable stations, backpacks and fixed stations.
Additionally, the S-TAG can be installed into overt or covert vehicles. This can provide a mobile gateway link to a team operating on their closed radio Net, to another team, or to a remote Ops room over a VoLTE or Satellite system such as Iridium PTT and allow them to monitor only or participate as required.
For such installations, S-TAG also provides a wired remote-control unit, allowing all the functions available on the gateway front panel to be made available at the front of the vehicle, with the S-TAG and associated radio equipment, located at the rear of the vehicle.
