Fire Series of Tactical Multi-Band Voice & Data Terminals

Welcome to the Fire Series family of radio products!

The Fire Series family of radio products was derived from the RT-1672/U(C) "Spitfire" which was the first multimode/multimission terminal fielded to the US armed forces encompassing Line of Sight (LOS) and SATCOM / DAMA operation. The fire family of products is unparalleled in performance, capability, and reliability. The latest models, the RT-1672D(C)/U "MBMMR" and RT-1808 A(C) "Skyfire," cover the 30-512MHz frequency spectrum with embedded ECCM modes and encryption in addition to the SATCOM performance capabilities pioneered by the Spitfire radio.
