The CNHF radio system is a complete, infrastructure independent, MESH-radio network operating on the HF spectrum. For security and defence, CNHF offers long-range IP-based communications with the highest performance, security and reliability. With our radio system, the user can establish their own independent communication network ranging from few kilometers to thousands of kilometers. This enables the required communications in military and humanitarian operations – just to name a few possible use cases.

The main technical features include:

  • Receiving the whole HF frequency band simultaneously
  • Proprietary wide band ALE protocol
  • Built-in cognitive engine, which manages the spectrum automatically
  • Typical link establishment time less than 500ms
  • Data rates: 700 – 153000 bit/s, selected automatically in the RTS – CTS handshake



FastALE is a communication software for legacy radios. FastALE boosts the performance to a new level comparing to existing radios in 2G or 3G ALE modes. On top of that, it adds networking capabilities to legacy radios and enables interoperability with a CNHF radio system – all in a stand-alone PC software. FastALE runs under Linux OS. It includes networking protocols, a Cognitive Engine, a proprietary MAC-layer and efficient modems for data transmissions. The ease of use has been one of the main design principles of FastALE. It allows users to concentrate on operations instead of configuring the communication systems and operating the radios.

The main technical features include:

  • RTS – CTS handshake, 53ms each
  • Link establishment time less than 500ms *
  • Data rates: 900 – 14400 bit/s*
    • selected automatically in the handshake
  • Includes a network configuration tool
  • Automatized frequency list generation
  • Compatible with all legacy radios with PC control functionality and audio in/out
    (* 3rd party radio hardware limited)


Surveillance sensor system

We allow our users to monitor different targets safely and reliably from long distance with our surveillance sensor system. The system includes integrated state-of-the-art sensor network(s) and long-range sensor network radios. The sensors include IR and daylight cameras, motion detectors, magnetic sensors, movement detectors and acoustic sensors. They can be linked to each other via wired connections or short range radios. The data automatically transmitted to the command post. Sensor fields and all the individual sensors can be monitored and controlled over the air from a remote location.

The main technical features include:

  • Operating time with batteries up to 14 days
  • Max. number of sensors in one sensor field 12
  • Max. number of sensor fields controlled by one command post 8
  • Time from detection to alert typically less than 10s.
  • Distance from the command post to sensor field up to 600km

Surveillance sensor network is developed in co-operation with KNL and Haltian.
