RAWC (Remote Area Wireless Command)

Portable Base Station & Tracking Monitor






RAWC is portable base-station that accommodates a laptop computer running RavTrack PC tracking software or alternative tracking solutions to create a lightweight, Remote Alert Wireless Command Center (RAWC).


Together with Raveon's personnel tracker ATLAS PT and M7-GX GPS tracking radios  creates a powerful independent tracking system that any emergency response unit should have available for disaster prepardness and/or when access to other wireless systems is not available.


The RAWC communication subsystem is a portable base station in a transit case configured to be rapidly deployed from a vehicle. It has a VHF or UHF radio modem integrated inside the case which connects to a computer via included USB cable (running serial protocol). The unit also has a backup battery for temporary mobile use. The RF signals (GPS and VHF) are cabled to connectors on the outside of the case to provide the option of hooking up external components to the system.


Features include:

  • Rugged and self-contained, with double throw latches and pad-lockable lid.

  • Light weight (under 30lbs with laptop), with retractable handle for convenient transport and deployment.

  • Raveon M7 RF Transceiver built in for wireless connectivity.

  • Radio power: Three sources. AC power supply built in. DC battery back-up built in. DC charger input.

  • Backlit ON/OFF switch for radio.

  • On-board GPS antenna. Hot-swappable with external GPS antenna through external TNC port.

  • Custom brackets designed specifically for a Dell Latitude E6420 XFR to secure laptop and protect from dropping.
