Datalink Systems USA Inc. has teamed up with BK Technologies in order to provide advanced GPS and data processing over analog and P25 networks. Tracking is currently available in analog and digital GPS tracking of portable and mobile radios. These radios must be equipped with internal GPS modules or GPS equipped mics. M-150 radios act as base GPS receivers linked by serial cable to local Datalink DataNET host mapping software or remotely over Iridium satellite or cellular backhaul.
P25-M150 Radios Act as Base Radios for GPS
BK Technologies’ portable radios are a popular choice with wildfire firefighters at a global level. When integrated with Datalink’s DataNET IP packet communications, range can effectively be unlimited. As an example a KNG-M150 acting as a mobile base radio linked to multiple KNG2 portables can connect via the serial port (cable) to a Datalink i50 MobiHUB with internal Iridium Satellite or Cellular modems. This allows for global data and GPS communication to remote bases in seconds.
