Product Literature


The LPVA provides extended range for the most advanced handheld radio in operation. Having a low profile weighing 10 pounds, the LPVA can be easily integrated into air, land, and sea-based platforms. The LPVA chassis provides interfaces for power sources, antennas, intercoms, and data devices. The internal battery charger recharges the radio’s Lithium-Ion battery. Users can dismount the radio from the LPVA within two seconds – cable free, fully charged, and immediately operational, without losing communications. The Removable Control Head with LCD display provides remote control of radio functions.
