COTS Enabled Solution

The APEx Predator System provides POWER + DATA to enable communications from tactical radios and peripherals to commercial tablets and computers running both Windows and Android operating systems. The system is designed for multiple mission sets that demand a flexible communications platform and power management solution

 


 

End User Devices (EUD)

The APEx Predator system enables communications from tactical data radios and peripherals to commercial tablets and computers. It allows for the data and power connection of multiple peripheral devices, which may have a variety of interfaces, back to a COTS computing system over a single USB Interface. Now your computer system can be a full desktop computer, laptop computer, smartphone or tablet.

Battery Elimination

Battery eliminator mode reduces weight of the entire system by removing the need for the radio battery and any spare batteries that might be carried. It also reduces the height of the radio, and when positioned at the front right or front left of the body, leaves extra room for shouldering a weapon.

 


 

Peripheral Devices

The APEx Predator system also allows for the simultaneous connection of multiple voice, data, video and peripheral devices, and their unique interfaces, back to a COTS computing device, using a single USB Interface. Command and control from a single, simplified solution means enhanced situational awareness.

APEx + Software

We know its not only about the hardware, which is why we also create the best software for our Operators. We’ve created software so that an exhausted, injured, and task saturated Operator can operate with ease, giving the JTAC and his team the edge they need to achieve mission success to come home alive.

Agile Port Expander (APEx)

The Agile Port Expander (APEx) is the heart of the APEx Predator System (APS). APEx provides power & data distribution from an attached End User Device (EUD) computer to multiple peripherals. APEx features four universal peripheral ports for plug-n-play cables to a variety of communication peripherals and sensors. Customize your APS kit for your unique mission.

End User Device (EUD)

The EUD is the computing and user interface core of APEx Predator System. The EUD can be your COTS computer of choice. Standard APEx Predator System kit is configured with 7” multitouch LCD tablet which hosts an Intel® Core™ i5 processor packed with ram & storage for every possible mission requirement. Can be used with gloved hands and in bright sunlight conditions.

Modular GPS

The NEW shoulder-mounted, low profile Modular GPS, designed for the APEx Predator System, features the same outstanding performance as the MTS GPS and includes a new cable interface.

Radio Power Wedge

The Radio Power Wedge enables power management to PRC 152/148 radios. It operates in trickle charge (radio battery) and battery eliminator modes.

Agile Port Expander (APEx)

The Agile Port Expander extends the connection options on any computer enabling the communications of tactical and other peripherals. APEx also acts as a power distribution device by powering the attached peripherals.

 


 

 

Features

Ports 1, 2 , 3 & 4
4 universal USB 2.0/3.0 data and power ports

The APEx Predator system also allows for the simultaneous connection of multiple voice, data, video and peripheral devices, and their unique interfaces, back to a COTS computing device, using a single USB Interface. Command and control from a single, simplified solution means enhanced situational awareness.

Radio Power Wedge

The Radio Power Wedge can act as a battery eliminator for your radio when connected to the APEx or MTS systems. When connected to a battery, it will trickle charge your battery as well, allowing you to power all radio devices from a single common battery. This aids the operator in decreasing weight by carrying fewer batteries and battery types.

The Radio Power Wedge connects to the PRC-148 and PRC-152 radios. When connected to the APEx or MTS, the Radio Power Wedge can deliver power to the radio and battery.

Tactical Nylon

Operators are very selective when it comes to their vests and rucks. These elements are an extension of the Operator and if not comfortable will be put aside for something else. BDATech has developed a number of different plate carriers and other packs/bags to satisfy the varying opinions and needs of the individual operator. From simple plate carriers to load-bearing plate carriers, chargers and quick release vests to assault packs and bags, there are numerous options for the operator to find the vest or ruck to meet their needs.
