Codan Launches Envoy High Frequency, Software-Defined Radio

Codan Radio Communications, a division of Codan Limited (ASX-CDA), announced today the launch of the Codan EnvoyTM, a software-defined HF radio platform.  The Envoy provides the advantages of software-defined radio – the ability to add new capabilities to the radio through software upgrades – in an affordable commercial platform. 

“The Codan Envoy is now the most advanced commercial HF radio in the world, and sets a new standard for HF radio.  The Envoy provides customers the peace of mind of future upgradeability as a software-defined radio, combined with legendary Codan performance, reliability and support,” said Kevin Kane, president and general manager, Codan Radio Communications Division.

The Envoy provides users with advanced internal features such as automatic link establishment, encryption, high-speed data, GPS and IP interface. A true digital radio, the Envoy offers scalable solutions for mobile, deployed and base station requirements. 

The Envoy, with an icon-based user interface inspired by today’s smartphones, incorporates an intuitive and simple to use, high resolution, colour, graphical user handset for radio operation and control.

“The state of the art user interface of the Envoy advances ease of use for an HF radio, while the IP capability allows customers to seamlessly integrate the radio into their communications networks, making HF more accessible,” said Kane.
