The DRS Intelligence Broadcast Receiver – Miniaturized (IBR-M) provides the most comprehensive near real time situational awareness and intelligence picture worldwide. It is a beyond line-of-sight (BLOS) broadcast receiver for millions of threat, survivor, and Blue Force Tracking reports daily without transmitting or the need for data forwarders.
The IBR-M is a repackaging of the Air Force Tactical Receive System-Ruggedized, yielding a two-thirds size and weight reduction and maintaining all functionality. It provides red side processing for filtering, correlation, and translation, therefore freeing up platform processors for other mission functions. It is a four-channel, software defined terminal that delivers IBS via the Common Interactive Broadcast (CIB) waveform today and is reprogrammable for future waveforms. With a transmit upgrade kit the IBR-M can provide simultaneous CIB receive and UHF SATCOM secure voice, text, and data using either the Integrated Waveform (IW) or the Mobile User Objective System (MUOS) waveform.
