The STR-1800 multimode data radio that SRI will supply to GE Transportation features an output power level up to 45 W and is available for domestic and most international uses supporting analog and digital signals.

Summation Research Inc. (SRI) signed a multiyear agreement to supply VHF and UHF data radios to GE Transportation for use with its Locotrol locomotive distributed power control systems and other rail applications. Under the agreement, SRI will supply the STR-1800 multimode data radio, a new generation of its STR family of mobile data radios that it claims provides increased performance and functionality for deployment in legacy 25-KHz and newer 12.5- and 6.25-KHz channels subject to FCC narrowbanding mandates. SRI says it is applying knowledge and experience gained in high-bandwidth satellite, aircraft, and range telemetry markets to this narrowband railroad telemetry requirement. The company claims this technology also provides new methods for small satellite telemetry and communications needs.
