GD300 radio interface kit


The GD300 is designed to be radio network agnostic. It can be connected to various tactical radios using the GD300 radio interface kit (RIK). The RIK establishes a common Glenair 13 pin interface between the GD300 and tactical radios.

Because tactical radios tend to have unique, often proprietary connectors and can required software modifications to adapt our industry standard RS232 or USB signals to custom radio signals; we have established the RIK-13 Glenair connector as our demarcation point.

The RIK provides: (1) RS232, (2) USB 2.0, and (1) power connection. And is equipped with four programmable buttons that can be used to control the radio volume and preselects.
