Revealing the Functionality of Professional Two-Way Radio Technology






BIRCS is an easy to operate multi-user/multi-workplace suite of PC programs designed as a modular concept consisting of sleek, robust, reliable and maintainable application modules carefully programmed exclusively in C/C++. With its functions the software provides a means to use the special features of state-of-the-art digital two-way radio communications equipment. BIRCS has low PC performance requirements and most of its modules offer network interfaces for use by third party applications (control of functions and processing of incoming data).

The following main components are included in BIRCS :

·         Radio Remote Controlling and Audio Dispatching

·         Audio Replay

·         Short Text Messaging

·         Location Service

·         Selective Call Messaging

·         Telemetry

·         File Transfer

"Making-of" BIRCS


The BIRCS suite of programs is executable under Microsoft Windows PC operating systems (Windows 7 or later). During the development of the software care has been taken to ensure that the system remains Internet independent. With the exception of downloadable map data for the Location Service (which is also able to run offline once the map data is stored locally) there is no utilization of third party Internet data components so the programs are self-contained and best suited for emergency services and similar organizations. 


BIRCS Software Multilayer Architecture


Presently BIRCS supports Motorola MOTOTRBO™ DMR, Hytera DMR and Barrett ALE/Selcall HF professional two-way radios. BIRCS is a layer based software system. The communication between the applications and the radio hardware is implemented using Device Gateway Communicator (DGC), offering utmost flexibility. Therefore the system is able to adopt new radio hardware simply by replacing some device drivers without the need to modify the application layer of the software. Additional radio brand/models/technologies may be supported anytime in the future.
