MONTREAL, Oct. 10, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - Ultra Electronics, TCS is pleased to announce that it has received a multi-million award from US Army Warfighter Information Network-Tactical (WIN-T) for Ultra ORION GRC-245C radio systems. These will address terrestrial transmission requirements of the Tactical Network Modernization for Army Expeditionary Signal Battalions (ESB) to allow soldiers to seamlessly communicate between WIN-T Increments and across echelons.
Designed to interoperate with the AN/GRC-245A/B HCLOS radios of WIN-T Inc. 1, the GRC-245C system also complements the WIN-T Inc. 2 architecture by providing longer range, higher capacity links that help meet the significant bandwidth demands of Transport Convergence on the tactical network. The GRC-245C is designed to thicken the terrestrial transport layer to enhance the performance of Army Mission Command and ISR applications while lessening the burden on Beyond Line-of-Sight systems thus reducing latency, resolving inefficiencies in the network, and providing commanders greater access to critical mission data and enhanced situational awareness of the battle space.
The GRC-245C radio is a high capacity, multi-channel, multi-band, point-to-point, and point-to-multipoint radio system with on-the-move capabilities. It is able to effectively link the various WIN-T Increments while simultaneously provide sufficiently high-capacity throughput to support the Army's Transport Convergence objectives.
