AN/ARC-210(V) (U)

Overview (U):

(U) The AN/ARC-210(V) multimode integrated communications system is designed to provide multimode voice and data communications in either normal or jam-resistant modes in line-of-sight or satellite communications modes. The system is capable of establishing 2-way communication links over the 30 to 400 MHz frequency range within tactical aircraft environments.

Description (U):

(U) The AN/ARC-210 transceiver is the nucleus of the multimode communications system. The basic transceiver can be operated as a normal non-Electronic Counter Countermeasures (ECCM) type VHF/UHF radio system. Addition of various types of ECCM module subassemblies enables the AN/ARC-210 Communications System to operate in SATCOM and jam-resistant modes. Several different types of ECCM module subassemblies are available. The U.S. Navy RT-1556(V)/ARC-210 transceiver with the U.S. Navy standard ECCM module subassembly provides the HAVE QUICK, HAVE QUICK II, and the Single-channel Ground and Airborne Radio System (SINCGARS) waveforms. The AN/ARC-210 has growth capabilities to SATURN, or country-specific ECCM waveforms.

(U) The AN/ARC-210 operates via the MIL-STD-1553B data bus. Optionally, a remote control is available for manual operation of the transceiver system. Aviation red, Navy white, USAF white, or NVIS compatible (green) lighting is available, powered by 5 V ac or V dc, 28 V ac or V dc, or 115 V ac. A remote indicator and a family of broadband, electronically tunable antenna are available to enhance system performance. A 125-watt broadband high power amplifier (HPA) is also available.

(U) The AN/ARC-210(V) multimode integrated communications system is the new United States Navy Standard VHF/UHF Airborne Communications System, replacing the ARC-182. The Navy plans to procure a total of 5,300 AN/ARC-210s. The majority of these radios will be installed in all U.S. Navy tactical aircraft including being the standard V/UHF radio for the F/A-18 Hornet. Other Navy and Marine Corps platforms include the V-22 and AH-1W. 171 radio units are programmed for the Air Force for installation on the RJ-7 and B-52H. The U.S. Army plans on installing 61 on the UH-60 and ASC-15B. 299 of the radios purchased are for foreign military customers including the Canadian Forces Utility Tactical Transport Helicopter, Canada C-130, and the Finland and Swiss F/A-18s.
