Watcher is the universal man-machine interface of Thales Communication’s tactical radios including the HF (Skyf@st), the UHF Flexnet, the VHF ( PR4G and PR4G F@stnet
) and at last the Starmille.
The goal of the man-machine interface is to make it easier to use a radio while increasing its operational features of the latter. Watcher is compact, lightweight, ruggedized and enables a wireless communication (Bluetooth) up to 10 meters away. Watcher allows operators access to all functions of the radio by remote control.
It offers two kinds of access:
- A first level for soldiers who only need to access minimum command and control functions
- A second level gives radio operators access to all the parameters. Placed on a soldier’s arm, it allows him to operate the radio during a difficult situations without being distracted from his core mission, and enables all types of communication on the move
