What is the R-DECK? 


The R-DECK (Rapidly Deployable Expeditionary Communications Kit) is a self-contained communications solution designed for use in austere environments where normal communications are either compromised or non-functioning, such as major natural disasters, local catastrophic events, or ongoing inhospitable conditions.

The R-DECK is an innovative answer to on-the-ground needs. It was developed by R3 Networks engineers based on many years of in-the-field experience providing communication solutions to first-responder teams during many of the world’s most recent mega-disasters. The R3 Networks team has used this first-hand knowledge to create the most efficient and capable kit currently on the market. 

The R-DECK is made-to-order and highly adaptable. It has modular capabilities that can be specially customized and configured to fit any existing disaster response plans or first responder communication solutions. In the absence of an existing format, the RDECK can function as an immediate, first-stop and standalone communications system. 

The R-DECK is robust and mobile. It is an all-in-one communications solution for advance mobile and/or static teams. It is lightweight, robust, and designed to be operational even in the worst possible environments. It can be mounted in transport vehicles for mobile use and/or easily transported as a one-man backpack communications kit. On-site, it functions as a self-powered complete communications hub for any forward base of operations.
