RO®-Mobile Awareness Platform (RO®-MAP)

RO-Mobile Awareness Platform (RO-MAP.) The RO-MAP is a software application that runs on a PDA and provides vital Situational Awareness (SA) information quickly and reliably to the end-user. The RO-MAP utilizes the functionality of a PDA along with the beyond line-of-sight (BLOS) capability of the RO Tactical Radio to provide situational awareness and enhanced communication capabilities.

Not only can the RO-MAP obtain position location information, text messages and reports from other RO tactical radio users, it can also be used as a remote control device for the RO tactical radio. All commonly used functions of the radio can be controlled and monitored including speaker volume and networks assigned. The PDA connects to the RO tactical radio through the 6 pin RS-232 data/audio port. When connected, the RO tactical radio is configured to operate in data collector mode. This feature provides position awareness of all RO tactical radios within 100-250 miles that are on the same network. The position location information (PLI) is then graphically displayed on the RO-MAP situational awareness application. The RO tactical radio transmits location based on time, distance or when the push-to-talk switch is depressed.
