SlingShot Manpack VHF Applique

The SlingShot Appliqué is the heart of the system. Weighing only between 507 g (UHF) and 605 g (VHF) it converts RF to commercial satellite frequency, working with the majority of in-service radios. Any Crypto is untouched by the Appliqué and is therefore maintained.
