Starblazer supports the requirement for an airborne, multi-band, multi-mission, anti-jam, voice and data network-capable communications system in a single package.
Currently, military forces worldwide employ single-band VHF (Very High Frequency) air traffic control radios and single-band tactical UHF (Ultra High Frequency) radio systems to meet mission requirements. The AN/ARC-232(V) Starblazer integrates the functionality of these radios into one small, lightweight package qualified to military standards.
The AN/ARC-232(V) Starblazer combined capabilities offer one integrated package and is designed for application and installation in a broad range of fixed and rotary wing aircraft. It is a form and fit replacement to existing AN/ARC-164 installations for ease in upgrading to the new SATURN ECCM (Electronic Counter Countermeasures).
