SEL Radio Receives JF-12 Certification

DoD shortlists SEL-3031 Serial Radio Transceiver for military applications.

PULLMAN, Wash. — Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories, Inc. (SEL) announced that the SEL-3031 Serial Radio Transceiver has attained U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) JF-12 certification. With this certification, the SEL-3031 can provide wireless communications in U.S. military incident command system (ICS) applications in the continental United States and several U.S. territories.  

“The SEL-3031 Radio not only meets the DoD FIPS and JF-12 requirements, it is unique in providing a solution designed for reliable, low-latency SCADA control system applications,” said Dennis Gammel, SEL engineering director for Cybersecurity.    

JF-12 certification is a typical requirement for all radios prior to DoD procurement. This certification adds the SEL-3031 to a select group of industrial-grade radios certified for use in the ICS environment. The radio is also FIPS 140 Level 2-compliant.  

The SEL-3031 is designed for low-latency, performance-based applications, including high-speed control, reliable teleprotection and communications for fast automation. The radio performs exceptionally well in SCADA and critical-industrial communications, operating in the 900 MHz license-free ISM band and with a line-of-sight range of up to 20 miles. For longer distances and non-line-of-sight applications, the SEL-3031 uses SEL Hop-Sync™ technology for reliable communications.
