Keltron Active Network Radio System Receives JF-12 Certification From U.S. Military

The radio system is designed to transmit and receive fire and life safety alarm communication data over short or extended ranges.

WALTHAM, Mass. — Keltron Corporation, a manufacturer and provider of life safety event management systems, announced on Monday it has received JF-12 certification from the United States Army Spectrum Management Office for its Keltron Active Network Radio System.

Users of the spectrum-dependent radio equipment for transmitting alarm signals to an on-site alarm monitoring center must have a formally approved local radio spectrum manager or responsible authority before operating the equipment.

The Keltron Active Network Radio System is designed to transmit and receive fire and life safety alarm communication data over short or extended ranges, according to the company. The certification signifies that the product has met stringent security, reliability and flexibility requirements for U.S. military network deployments.

The radio system also connects seamlessly to the UL listed Keltron LS 7000 Life Safety Event Management System, which provides the dispatch, monitoring and reporting software in a single system.

Now approved for selection and use by all branches of the U.S. military, the company says the Keltron Active Network Radio System offers the ability to extend wireless networks beyond the confines of individual buildings without the need for a direct buried line or building-to-building conduit runs. The JF-12 compliant Keltron radio system is currently deployed by the U.S. Coast Guard, U.S. Army and U.S. DoE facilities throughout the U.S.
