Ultra Electronics TCS launched the Ultra ORION X505-V, a vehicular radio system which provides front line troops with unprecedented broadband network access.
The X505-V is a multiband, dual channel vehicular solution adapted for high speed on-the-move (OTM) and at-the-quick-halt (ATQH) communications. The radio can operate as a high-capacity mesh node at 80 Mbps or a PMP remote station with 4G performance. With its ability to create a self-organizing OTM network, the radio is ideal for network centric operations, rapid deployments, command & control (C2), disaster recovery and any other mission requiring high mobility and high speed data.
The X505-V allows the exchange of bi-directional, multi-party video and secure connection to smart devices, enabling broadband communications at the edge.
For decades, Ultra TCS has provided the high-capacity radio backbones to the world s Armed Forces, Iwan Jemczyk, President, Ultra Electronics TCS, told MT. The X505-V extends this renowned capability down to the lower echelons, supporting the proliferation of sensors and data products that are now essential on the modern battlefield. The X505-V radio can also be quickly and easily removed from its vehicle mount for at-the-quick-halt (ATQH) mast-mounted operations, providing extended communications range. It has multiple-input, multiple-output (MIMO) capabilities, ensuring robust performance in the harshest conditions. The X505-V allows optimal use of licensed and unlicensed frequency bands maximizing spectral efficiency. The radio offers direct (over-the-air) interoperability with upper echelons using mast-mounted ORION radios.
Bittium (former Elektrobit) exhibits its latest products and solutions for tactical communications on stand N3-352. The products and solutions are Bittium Tactical Wireless IP Network (TAC WIN), Bittium Tactical LTE Access Point solution (Long-Term Evolution, 4G), Bittium Tough VoIP product family (Voice over Internet Protocol) and Bittium Tough Mobile LTE smartphone. These products and solutions are based on the latest software and device technologies and enable comprehensive broadband data transfer and IP calls even in challenging conditions.
At the exhibition stand, Bittium demonstrates the field applicability of these data transfer and communication solutions, which are essential in the battlefield. In addition, the Bittium Tough Mobile will be demonstrated with Bittium s own and third party software security solutions.
Bittium Tactical LTE Access Point is a solution providing LTE access to the Bittium TAC WIN network. With the solution different troops can benefit from cost-efficient and high-speed multimedia data and VoIP services by using commercial smartphones as well as special terminals intended for authority use. Bittium Tough VoIP product family s products enable tactical IP calls and broadband data transfer even in demanding conditions. Products are also easily integrated to existing IP infrastructure.
