Command and control within self-contained secure network

Chemring Technology Solutions : 23 March, 2015  (New Product)
Chemring integrates SmartLink and TACCOMS to provide complete C4 capability for improved collaboration and situational awareness
Command and control within self-contained secure network

Chemring Technology Solutions has successfully integrated SmartLink, a portable network-in-a-box, with TACCOMS, a unique software application, to deliver a complete C4 (command, control, communication and coordination) capability for tactical operations.

Developed by University Pertahanan Nasional Malaysia (UPNM), TACCOMS generates a search grid to optimise the deployment of tactical resources within land, sea or air scenarios. The integration of SmartLink with TACCOMS allows the tactical team leader to maintain complete command and control via a self-contained, secure communications network. Seamless and continuous C4 capability delivers improved team collaboration and situational awareness, resulting in greater mission effectiveness.

Current tactical military radios constrain users to basic voice and low data rate communications. SmartLink delivers teams on the ground, and in command centres, access to high-end cellular network features, enabling voice, image and video sharing in real time.

When the local commercial cellular infrastructure fails, SmartLink can be deployed in less than three minutes, delivering a wide area cellular network. SmartLink’s small form factor, long range and low power consumption is unrivalled in the market, and it has been successfully trialled by organisations worldwide. It can be used to support military operations, national border security, humanitarian aid and public safety operations, where the existing commercial mobile network coverage may be unreliable or non-existent.

Will Tucker, Product Leader at Chemring Technology Solutions, said: “The biggest problem in any tactical operation is effective C4; there are many cases where a lapse in this has caused lives to be lost or failure of the mission. The combination of SmartLink and TACCOMS provides the ultimate C4 capability, delivering real time information to those on the ground, when all other communications systems fail. Soldiers will also carry less weight, and can maintain their push-to-talk (PTT) radio communications and share real-time location, video and image data.”
