The APEx Predator System provides POWER + DATA which enables communications from tactical radios and peripherals to commercial tablets and computers and smartphones running both Windows and Android operating systems.
Windows or AndroidYou can’t choose your mission, but you can choose your gear. Modeled after Black Diamond’s Modular Tactical System, the APEx Predator system enables communications from tactical data radios and peripherals to commercial tablets and computers. Command and control from a single solution means enhanced situational awareness.
COTS Enabled SolutionThe APEx Predator System provides POWER + DATA which enables communications from tactical radios and peripherals to commercial tablets and computers running both Windows and Android operating systems. The system is designed for multiple mission sets that demand a flexible communications platform and power management solution
End User Devices (EUD)The APEx Predator system enables communications from tactical data radios and peripherals to commercial tablets and computers. It allows for the data and power connection of multiple peripheral devices, which may have a variety of interfaces, back to a COTS computing system over a single USB Interface. Now your computer system can be a full desktop computer, laptop computer, a Smart Phone, or a tablet computer.
Battery EliminationBattery eliminator mode reduces weight of the entire system by removing the need for the radio battery and any spare batteries that might be carried. It also reduces the height of the radio, and when positioned at the front right or front left of the body, this leaves extra room for shouldering a weapon.
Peripheral DevicesThe APEx Predator system also allows for the simultaneous connection of multiple voice, data, video and peripheral devices, and their unique interfaces, back to a COTS computing device, using a single USB Interface. Command and control from a single, simplified solution means enhanced situational awareness.
