BANDIT™ 2i Miniature Tri-Band Transceiver

L-, S- and C-Band Transceiver

The L3Harris BANDIT 2i Miniature L-, S- and C-Band Transceiver is a low-cost, lightweight, wideband data link and all-in-one digital transceiver adaptable to a wide variety of applications. The BANDIT 2i is the enhanced version and future replacement to the widely deployed and successful L3Harris BANDIT line. With its new tri-band operation, increased output power, standard network interfaces and built-in router, the BANDIT 2i is fully net-ready and is a powerful, tactical gateway into the net-centric battlespace.

The L3Harris BANDIT 2i tri-band transceiver is a small, lightweight and low-power digital transceiver that provides wideband data link capability adaptable to a wide variety of applications. It delivers real-time, IP-based, full-motion digital video for situational awareness, targeting, battle damage assessment, surveillance, video broadcast, remote sensors, convoy operations and other situations where high-resolution video is required. The transceiver is designed primarily to be used on size and weight constrained platforms operating in harsh environments. It is interoperable with other products using the USG and NATO standard waveforms. The L-, S- or C-Band frequencies are centered around standard analog frequency ranges, making the BANDIT 2i software-defined radio a perfect replacement for analog links: and adding better-performing digital signal transmission and improved security.
