TELEGRID produces a family of adapters that provide Internet Protocol (IP) interface capability to tactical legacy and COTS equipment such as military radios, encryptors, sensors, and gateways. This allows these units to interoperate with tactical Local Area Networks (LANs) and Wide Area Networks (WANs). A key requirement in the development of these adapters has always been cyber security. For example all adapters use secure protocols such as HTTPS and SSH (v1 and v2) and TLSv1.2. Also, each adapter has dual port web interface with one port dedicated to data communications using both DHCP and static IP address designation and a second port dedicated to unit management and remote control. All adapters include front panel indicators that show configuration choice and operational status. They operate from input power of 80-264 VAC @ 47-440 Hz or 9-36 VDC (optional) and are contained in an Aluminum case which occupies the space of 1/3 of a 1U rack mount. A metal mounting tray is included with each device which allows easy rack removal or replacement of devices.
KY Over IP (KYoIP)
TELEGRID’s KYIP-750v4 adapts military encryptors – types KY-57/ KY-58 (VINSON) and KY-99/ KY-100 (ANDVT) – to IP-based systems, such as radios, or to Local Area Networks (LANs) or Wide Area Networks (WANs), thus facilitating a 10/100BaseT Ethernet interface to legacy military encryptors. The KYIP-750v4 can be configure by an operator to operate in either Analog, Digital Wide Band (WB) or Digital Narrowband (NB) mode in order to match the operational mode selected for the encryptor. In a secure IP link between a voice/ data user and a remote radio the same KYIP-750v4 can be employed at the user end of the link and at the remote radio end of the link. The operator can also configure the connection as a point-to-point connection or as a point-to-multipoint connection which supports non-centralized group calling (without a single point of failure) between various nodes. Transmission is controlled by activation of the Push-To-Talk (PTT) signal by the operator’s handset at the encryption device or by the data terminal. The adapter design is based on TELEGRID’s KY-57 Buffers – Models KYB-701, 702 and 703 – fielded by the US Army and USMC. Data Sheet
Radio Over IP (RoIP)
TELEGRID’s ROIP-850v1 Radio over Internet Protocol (IP) Adapter facilitates the inter-operation of various military radios such as AN/PRC-117G, AN/PRC-152, AN/PRC-137, AN/PRC-148, AN/PRC-150, and AN/PRC-160 as well as commercial Analog Transceivers with IP-based Local Area Networks (LANs), Wide Area Networks (WANs), or IP-based systems/ gateways. The Adapter essentially converts voice/ data traffic to/from the radio to standard Voice over IP (VoIP) and facilitates a 10/100BaseT Ethernet interface driven by user’s Push-To-Talk (PTT). In effect it makes the radios a node on the network thus allowing communications with other equipment similarly connected to the infrastructure. This offers considerable benefits to radio users including the ability to communicate over larger geographical areas then the radio itself supports. This network connection also provides a more reliable quality of service and supports distant radio users which may be mobile or stationary. The features added by the Adapter include audio conferencing, voice and data transport, and remote radio control and operational programming. Data Sheet
Sensor Over IP
The TELEGRID Environmental Sensor Unit (ESU) is a high-security, high-performance networked system designed to operate in an unmanned tactical environment. The ESU includes features that make it an ideal solution for autonomous vehicles including separation and insulation of interfaces and a patent pending restart circuit that automatically initiates a restart process based on predefined system operational parameters.
The flexible design allows custom application development and connectivity to multiple secure networks. Flexible design features include additional service interfaces such as serial ports (both balanced and un-balanced), Controlled Area Network (CAN) bus, and direct GPIO interface lines to the internal Main Processor. Additionally the unit can connect to networks over fiber or copper Ethernet connections. Finally the unit allows connectivity to multiple sensor types including Temperature/ Humidity sensors, Pressure sensors, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Liquid sensors. Custom sensors or other interfacing devices can also be accommodated. Data Sheet
Serial Over IP / Legacy Over IP
TELEGRID’s KRSP suite of products converts serial monitoring and control signals to SNMPv1, v2 or v3 for integration into a Network Management System (NMS) like CA’s eHealth and IBM’s NetCool as well as secure remote monitoring and control. Click here for a white paper about the KRSP.
