Midian's VS-1200-HS1G is a GPS H250 handset that can connect to many military manpack radios using a U-329 connector. When the GPS H250 handset is keyed it will send the PTT ID (ANI) and the GPS coordinates. The unit also supports sending of an Emergency ID with Location when activated by Man-Down - Lone Worker sensor. Midian's CAD-800 base station controller decodes and displays the PTT ID along with the GPS location and other selectable information shown on a map using Google Earth or Terrain Navigator Pro with no monthly subscriber fees.
The VS-1200-HS1G also supports decode functions such as Polling, Selective Calling, Radio Disable, Radio Enable, Spy (Remote Monitoring) and Emergency Acknowledge. These decode functions are initiated from Midian's CAD-800. Polling allows the dispatcher to request a unit's GPS location. Selective calling can be to call an individual unit, a group of units or all units. If a unit becomes lost or stolen, it can be disabled, so it cannot interfere with the system. If the unit is later recovered the unit can be re-enabled. The Spy function enables the dispatcher to eavesdrop on a unit during an emergency or other condition. If multiple Emergency IDs are transmitted, the dispatcher can stop subsequent Emergency ID transmissions using the Emergency Acknowledge feature.
The military grade frequency domain voice encryption built into the VS-1200-HS1G protects conversations against the most determined listeners. The VS-1200-HS1G supports the selection of up to three different codes from approximately 4 billion codes. Each code can be programmed for one of four encryption levels.
