Sealevel recently launched four new variations to the ACC-188 USB synchronous serial radio adapter family. When combined with free software from the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA), the ACC-188 provides an interoperable, high-speed tactical data communications solution for tactical radios to send and receive IP data such as email, text messages, GPS maps, images, and coordinates.

The ACC-188 solution is compatible with these radios and all variants:

PSC-5D
PRC-152
PRC-150
PRC-148
PRC-117F
RF5800
ARC-231
ARC-234
ARC-210
PRC-117G
PRC-119
DMR Radios
KY-99A

The ACC-188 operates in conjunction with standard PDA-184 software developed by and available from DISA. The PDA-184 software provides a Graphical User Interface (GUI) that allows radio users to transmit and receive a variety of data types at much higher speeds than is possible with comparable, proprietary solutions.

A key advantage of the ACC-188 is that it enables interoperability among the various radio brands and models used by the defense community. The ACC-188 is compatible with any tactical radio that has a synchronous communication port using MIL-STD-188-184. This includes the most prevalent brands and models deployed by the U. S. military.

The PDA-184 tactical data communications application was developed by and is available from DISA and includes these features:

Saves thousands of dollars per radio compared to upgrading hardware and purchasing expensive proprietary software
Interoperable (send/receive data with different radio models and brands)
Implements MIL-STD-188-184 Data Waveform
High-speed data throughput
Easy-to-use Java-based GUI
Runs in Microsoft Windows XP or 2000

The cable and integrated assembly consists of a printed circuit board that is tested and then encapsulated using an over-mold process, commonly called a bump in the cable. This process results in a rugged, fully-shielded, battlefield ready product capable of withstanding harsh environments. One end of the cable includes a standard type-A USB connector, suitable for use with any USB enabled computer, while the other end connects to your tactical radio.

The PDA-184 software is available from DISA. If you are using a different radio or have additional questions, contact Marc Foster at marcf@sealevel.com or 864-843-8097 for further assistance.
