If you like gadgets, this may be the ultimate device to own. Well, you and your associates will need at least two of them. The RT7 Encrypted Voice and Data Modem works with any HF or V/UHF two-way radio system or computer network to provide secure voice, data and position services.
The RT7 provides robust secure voice, text, forms, file transfer, quickcodes, navigation, situational awareness, sms*, and email* (* via Gateway or CommandPoint Software). It is not a two-way radio itself. Instead, it connects to compatible two-way radios, networks (via an ethernet connection), or computers. It securely encrypts voice or data and also provides positioning information, all while using military-grade encryption.
The operator uses a handset connected to the RT7 front panel. The RT7 provides an address book to initiate private line calls or to send locally entered messages or files. It also can be connected to remote devices via wired cables, serving distant or even multiple users. It can be powered by any wall outlet (110 volts to 220 volts) or by a 12 volt or 24 volt vehicle electrical system.
This thing looks like it would be at home in a tank. Or maybe under the dash of your pickup truck. Or maybe in a LandRover in Mongolia.
The RT7 obviously is designed for military uses but it also could serve civilian government, law enforcement, maritime, oil exploration, aerospace, civilian contractors in Afghanistan, legal firms handling sensitive information, healthcare, financial services, other organizations where industry or regulatory policies require additional protection, international travelers, or any enterprises with business matters requiring a higher level of confidentiality. I wouldn’t be surprised if a few “drug wholesalers/importers” could use it also.
The price? If you have to ask, you can’t afford it. Seriously, I couldn’t find a price on this beast.
You can learn more in the RT7 data sheet at http://www.rapidm.com/pdf/datasheets/tactical/RAPTAWC_RT7_V4_EN_01H.pdf and from a list of spec sheets starting at https://duckduckgo.com/?q=RT7+Encrypted+Voice+and+Data+Modem&t=hc&ia=web.
I think I’ll pass on this thing. However, if you do buy a couple of these or more, drop me an (encrypted) note and let me know how they worked out for you. OK?
