Undercover Body Comms Kit

An optional undercover Body Comms Kit in a rugged custom carrying case is available from Codan and contains: 6 x mini-P25 AES 256 encryption enabled Vertex portable radios with drip antennas, 12 x Li‐Ion batteries, a keyloader, 6 x single unit chargers, 6 x micro-digital Bluetooth wireless ear piece/mikes that are completely unseen and sit inside the ear canal, 6 x neck loops with key fob PTTs for the keying the radios, a variety of equipment-carrying vests and harnesses.

HiveNet Wide Area System

A HiveNet repeater network can be configured as two or more separate repeaters connected together. Each repeater provides radio coverage for a local geographic region utilising a different transmit / receive frequency pair. The repeater sites are RF linked together such that transmitted information from Subscriber 1 is received at HiveNet 1, then linked to and rebroadcast from each HiveNet repeater in the system, allowing Subscriber 2 to receive the information from HiveNet 3. This allows each subscriber to transmit information to any other subscriber anywhere on the network.

Undercover asset tracking

HiveNet is used for undercover operations such as tracking wanted suspects. Undercover personnel follow suspects using hidden VHF P25 encrypted subscriber radios for communications. As agents move through different areas of the operation, the radio scans to an available repeater. HiveNet repeaters are programmed to ping after an inactive time interval allowing scanning radios to lock onto the closest (best) repeater. The repeaters are mounted inside of vehicles and are fully mobile, reconfiguring the system topography. All traffic heard by a single repeater will transmit out all other repeaters via the UHF link connection allowing all agents to communicate regardless of the associated repeater. The number of repeaters is only limited by physical distance of a single UHF link.

Communications in no coverage areas

A County Sheriff’s department uses three HiveNet repeaters to fill in an area of the county that is not covered by the existing radio infrastructure. The HiveNet is temporarily deployed as required in an area of rugged terrain. The HiveNet is operated as a dual-channel system with channel one in analog mode for Search and Rescue and channel two in P25 mode for Law Enforcement.

Emergency network integration and coverage

The British Columbia Ministry of Forests in Canada operates a HiveNet system consisting of over 350 fixed HiveNet sites on remote solar powered mountain tops. Each radio network connects 7 to 15 HiveNet sites to each other and the local Forest District office, allowing radio users to roam within that network. Each network can be connected to the neighbouring Forest District network by the users through the use of a DTMF code activated on the keypad of the hand-held radio. When a large scale forest fire or other critical communications requirement is needed, a transportable HiveNet network can be rapidly deployed to add additional radio coverage to the affected area.
