ANDVT ­ Advanced Narrowband Digital Voice Terminal . A COMSEC mode used in 5 kHz Narrowband SATCOM and DAMA . Compatible with the KY-99, KY-99A, and KY-100 COMSEC encryption devices . APCO ­ The Association of Public-Safety Communications Officials-International (APCO) is the world's largest organization dedicated to public safety telecommunications . APCO-25 ­ Project 25 (P25) or APCO-25 refer to a suite of standards for digital radio communications for use by federal, state/province and local public safety agencies in North America to enable them to communicate with other agencies and mutual aid response teams in emergencies . In this regard, P25 fills the same role as the European Tetra protocol, although not interoperable with it . ARQ ­ Automatic Repeat-reQuest, an error control method for data transmission which makes use of acknowledgments and timeouts to achieve reliable data transmission . An acknowledgment is a message sent by the receiver to the transmitter to indicate that it has correctly received a data frame . Usually, when the transmitter does not receive the acknowledgment before the timeout occurs (i .e . within a reasonable amount of time after sending the data frame), it retransmits the frame until it is either correctly received or the error persists beyond a predetermined number of retransmissions . COMSEC ­ Communications Security . CTCSS or CDCSS ­ Continuous Tone or Continuous Digital Coded Squelch System . Sub-audible tones used to prevent or deny access into LMR repeaters and handheld radios (i .e ., FRS radios) . DS-101, DS-102 ­ Protocols used for loading encryption keys into radio equipment from Data Transfer Devices (DTDs). ECCM ­ Electronic Counter/Counter Measures . Refers to frequency hopping capabilities (i .e ., SINCGARS and Havequick I/II) . ECCM describes a variety of practices which attempt to reduce or eliminate the effect of Electronic countermeasures (ECM) on electronic sensors aboard vehicles, ships and aircraft and weapons such as missiles . ECCM is also known as Electronic Protective Measures (EPM), chiefly in Europe . In practice, EPM often means resistance to jamming .

JTRS ­ Joint Tactical Radio System, often pronounced "jitters," is planned as the next-generation radio for use by the U .S . military in field operations for the second decade of the 21st century . JTRS is a software-defined radio for voice and data that will be backward-compatible with a very large number of other military and civilian radio systems . It also includes Wideband Networking Software to implement full-featured mobile ad hoc networks . JTRS includes integrated encryption capabilities . The JTRS operational-requirements document was released in 1998 . kbits, kbits/sec ­ Kilobits per second . KDU ­ Keypad/Display Unit . Removable radio interface control unit . KG-84 ­ COMSEC mode used for data traffic (i .e ., HPW, TCM) . KYV-5 ­ COMSEC mode used for SINCGARS ESIP EDM data traffic . Li Ion ­ Lithium Ion . A type of rechargeable battery . LMR ­ Land Mobile Radio System (LMRS) is a term that denotes a wireless communications system(s) intended for use by terrestrial users in vehicles (mobiles) or on foot (portables) . Such systems are used by emergency first responder organizations, public works organizations, or companies with large vehicle fleets or numerous field staff . Such a system can be independent, but often can be connected to other fixed systems such as the public switched telephone network (PSTN) or cellular networks . Also called Public Land Mobile Radio or Private Land Mobile Radio . The Land Mobile Radio System is also the United States Department of Defense's (DoD's) new stateof-the-art communication system . Government contractors, such as Lockheed Martin, SGIS and SAIC, provide the latest in LMRS technology to the government and military . LNE - Late Net Entry . A method of entering a SINCGARS frequency hopping radio net by having the radio automatically adjust its internal clock by receiving a timing signal from the master station .

LOS ­ Line-of-Sight . LOS refers to fixed frequency (simplex) presets . MELP ­ Mixed-Excitation Linear Predictive coding . Voice encoding technique used for narrowband SATCOM and HF communications . MHz ­ Megahertz, Typical frequency designation . Mickey ­ Havequick Time-of-Day word used for referring to TOD over the air . MIL-STD ­ Military Standard . MIL-STD-188-181B ­ The Military Standard that describes non-DAMA SATCOM, including the CPM data capabilities . Referred to as MS181 in the radio (as opposed to HPW) . NMEA ­ National Marine Electronics Association 0183 Interface Standard . Defines the interface to connect to a commercial GPS device (i .e ., Garmin 12 Series) . OTAR ­ Over-The-Air Rekey . Used to transmit/receive COMSEC variables from one radio to another . PEP ­ Peak Envelope Power. PLGR ­ Precision Lightweight GPS Receiver . Another name for the AN/PSN-11, which is the GPS device used by DoD . PPP ­ Point-To-Point Protocol . A networking type connection used from laptop to radio . An industry standard protocol that provides a method for transmitting datagrams (IP traffic ­ TCP/IP and UDP) over serial point-to-point links .

SATCOM ­ Satellite Communications . SCA ­ Software Communications Architecture . The Software Communications Architecture (SCA) is an open architecture framework that tells designers how elements of hardware and software are to operate in harmony within a software-defined radio . SCA is a key element in the U .S . military's Joint Tactical Radio System (JTRS) . It governs the structure and operation of the JTRS, enabling programmable radios to load waveforms, run applications, and be networked into an integrated system . A core framework, providing a standard operating environment, must be implemented on every hardware set . Interoperability among radio sets is enhanced because the same waveform software can be easily ported to all radio sets . SIMPLEX ­ Refers to presets that use the same frequency for both transmit and receive . SINCGARS ­ Single Channel Ground and Airborne Radio System . VHF-Low ground-to-ground frequency hopping mode used by the U .S . Army . SIP, ESIP, ASIP ­ SINCGARS Improvement Program, Enhanced SINCGARS Improvement Program, Advanced SINCGARS Improvement Program . TCM ­ Trellis Code Modulation . Technique used for high speed LOS data operations (48 and 64 kbps) .

TOD ­ Time-of-Day used for synchronization of frequency hopping radio nets . TRANSEC ­ Transmission Security . Type-1 ­ NSA-approved encryption algorithms used by the DoD, capable of handling classified information . UHF ­ Ultra High Frequency . 225 MHz to 512 MHz . VAA ­ Vehicular Amplifier Adapter (i .e ., RF-300M-HV) . VHF ­ Very High Frequency . 90 MHz to 225 MHz . VHF-LO ­ Very High Frequency ­ Low Range . 30 MHz to 90 MHz . VULOS ­ VHF, UHF Line-of-Sight . WB ­ Wideband .
