OTTAWA, May 28, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - CANSEC 2013 - Ultra Electronics, TCS is proud to announce the launch of its 4th generation of High-Capacity Line-of-Sight (HCLOS) radio, the Ultra ORION.
The ORION is a multi-mission radio system that performs the role of high-capacity backhaul for tactical networks interconnecting C4ISR elements. It can also act as a backhaul repeater, a range extension node, an aggregation/ distribution and access point, a WLAN or a remote station at the network's edge.
- Multiple radios - high-capacity (up to 1 Gbps) with simultaneous access to 3 radio channels and multiple frequency bands (Band 3+, Band 4, and ISM), point-to-point (PTP) and point-to-multipoint (PMP), at-the-halt (ATH) and on-the-move (OTM) in a small Size Weight and Power (SWaP) package
- Multiple missions - high-capacity backhaul, high-capacity access & distribution and strategic to tactical edge
- Multiple benefits -lower system cost, interoperability, flexible architecture upgradeable to 4x4 MIMO and spectral efficiencies up to 25 bits/s/Hz
Iwan Jemczyk, President, Ultra Electronics, TCS commented:
"Listening to our customers, we have developed a high-capacity IP communication system that offers sustained performance, operational flexibility and scalability to adapt to different missions. Interoperable with the thousands of AN/GRC-245 HCLOS and HCR software-defined radios we delivered worldwide, the Ultra ORION provides military commanders faster access to critical mission data and enhanced situational awareness of the battle space."
The ORION is a "Cloud-Ready" solution that can aggregate inputs from multiple forward deployed sensors on the battlefield and relay them efficiently to intelligence processing sites for improved situational awareness and immediate action. The ORION extends the IP network to lower echelons.
The Ultra ORION will be on display at the CANSEC tradeshow May 29-30, 2013, at booth 601.
