The Personnel Network Radio PNR-500 from Tadiran
Communications is a small Personal Role Radio (PRR) UHF communicator operating in the
410-450MHz band, facilitating effective communications between
infantry team members, over a very short range (over 1000 - 800 meters
When such devices are distributed to all the troops of an infantry
squad, these sets enable the squad leader to control his teams
more effectively and quietly, while facilitating external
communications to the company and other external networks. The
PNR-500 is controlled via a specially designed hands free headset
or remote activation switch.
The individual sets are utilizing dynamic synchronization and and
automatic clear channel tuning. They do not need a central control station.
Each personal radio on a network can operate up to four separate
subnets, allowing individual or intra-squad communications. The
sets can also provide intercom when troops are mounted on an
Armored Personnel Carrier (APC) and facilitate automatic routing
of calls via the vehicle's tactical Combat Net Radio (CNR). To
improve coordination and stealth, the PNR-500 supports whisper
mode, voice activated messages and alerts and up to 15 preset
network channels. Enhanced
models can also transfer data and link to add-on GPS module.
Bluetooth support for wireless headset or other accessories is
