Codan HF put to test in Arctic

Codan’s Sentry H high-frequency radio has been put to the test in Canada’s Arctic north by the Canadian Army during exercise NORTHERN WARRIOR 2018.

The team, from 35 communications Group Brigade of Canada (35 CBG) had two objectives: to provide effective communications across distances as great as 340 kilometres and to test new radio equipment in the Arctic environment.

The hard work paid off, as the team was able to successfully integrate a modem to transmit reports and images on the military radio network across the Arctic.

“The work done by the G6 35 GBC team has undoubtedly demonstrated the relevance of HF communications that are essential to operating effectively in this hostile climate,” Captain Pelletier of the Arctic Response Company Group told Journal Adsum.

“The work provided by the Communications Detachment is impressive ... given the ingenuity of the deployed solutions,” added Lieutenant-Colonel Dutil, Exercise Commander NORTHERN WARRIOR 2018.
