It is engineered to provide radio cross-band (VHF, UHF, 800-megahertz), cross-platform (digital/analog, trunked/talkaround, AM/FM), and VoIP capability for operations where command and control is needed for a wide range of responders. The ICRI is also designed to function as a repeater, for linking communications back to remote command centers, and to extend communications into subway tunnels, airports, and high-rise buildings.
