Lightweight Multiband Airborne Radio (LMAR)
The LMAR is a repackaged PRC6809 Multiband Inter/Intra Team Radio with the proper power conditioning and filtering for airborne applications. The LMAR was developed primarily for UAV applications.
Thales Communications is providing a unique version of the LMAR to the UK's Ministry of Defence Watchkeeper program. The Watchkeeper system provides enhanced capability that will enable commanders to detect and track targets for many hours without the need to deploy troops into potentially sensitive or dangerous areas. Watchkeeper flew for the first time in the UK on April 14, 2010, taking off from dedicated facilities at Parc Aberporth in West Wales for a 20-minute flight.
