Calytrix Comm Net Radio v5.6 Released
See the Reason your Comms aren’t Perfect
CNR-Effects adds realism to the radio communications environment by degrading signals based on a wide range of factors including environment, man-made structures and equipment to accurately degrade transmission signals. The benefits to education are as clear as a picture; you can visualize exactly what is causing your communications problems. The CNR-Effects Visualizer tool is a web based display showing all the factors contributing to the degradation of each transmission received. The factors considered include:
Antenna type and facing
Distance between radios
Intervening terrain profile
Loss due to vegetation, buildings and atmospheric conditions
The Effects Visualizer is also a valuable debugging tool, allowing the operator to understand the CNR-Sim's decision-making process when applying degradation effects to received signals.
As Close to the Real Thing
The PRC-152 is one of the most widely used military radios in the world, so Calytrix has developed an ultra-realistic interface for it in CNR-Skins. Menu structures and behavior accurately reflect the real radio right down to the little details such as screen and keyboard backlight functions, display modes, startup delays and more. The faceplate supports procedural learning for functions such as beacon mode, software updates, crypto fills, panic zeroize and others. As part of this release, the PRC-152 faceplate is now available to all CNR-Skins users.
One-Click Signal Degradation
As CNR-Effects has continued to evolve, Calytrix has been working hard to ensure that it is simple to set up and configure. With the latest release we have focused on enabling “One-Click Signal Degradation”, while still giving users the power to make the adjustments they need.
Of course, all radios on your network can have their radio effects remotely modified using CNR-Monitor!
Leave the Mouse for Game Control
CNR-Sim is both a desktop tool as well as an integration platform. With this in mind, we have started expanding the ways you can control it while it is embedded into other systems, allowing much richer control over the functions you can trigger via Hotkeys.
Micro-adjust the volume of an individual channel or its receive frequency, do so in major or minor increments, mute the local channel or all channels and more.
