MILITARY TECHNOLOGY: DSEI 2015: Ultra Electronics TCS …

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.

MILITARY TECHNOLOGY: DSEI 2015: Elbit Systems Showcases …

At DSEI 2015, starting tomorrow, Elbit Systems will showcase its Tadiran GRX-8000, the latest generation of its High Capacity (HC) Frequenty Hopping (FH) line-of-sight broadband radio systems.
The GRX8000 is a Software Defined Radio System (SDR), designed to meet the growing need for reliable data capacity in the modern battlefield. It significantly extends the range and throughput of military wireless networks while maintaining, according to the company, unique immunity and anti-jamming capabilities for operation under very harsh environments.The system supports the latest IP services and interfaces along with legacy communication protocols for backward compatibility.

With its extremely high system gain the GRX- 8000 supports very long distances in Point-To-Point and Point-To-Multipoint network topologies. The system supports a wide variety of services ranging from traditional telephony to broadband multimedia and very latest C4 ISR data.

Elbit Systems is an international high technology company engaged in a wide range of defence, homeland security and commercial programmes throughout the world.

The company, which includes Elbit Systems and its subsidiaries, operates in the areas of aerospace, land and naval systems, command, control, communications, computers, intelligence surveillance and reconnaissance (C4ISR), unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), advanced electro-optics (EO), EO space systems, EW suites, signal intelligence systems, data links and communications systems, radios, and cyber-based systems.

The company also focuses on the upgrading of existing platforms, developing new technologies for defence, homeland security and commercial applications and providing a range of support services, including training and simulation systems.1
