The European Defense Review website reported that Commtact Ltd., an Israeli provider of advanced wireless communications solutions for manned and unmanned platforms on the ground, in the air or at sea, announced last week the unveiling of its new comprehensive tactical communications kit.
Weighing approximately 20 kg, the lightweight kit is simple to operate and offers fast mobility by forces in the field, helping to prevent their exposure to hostile elements. The entire communications system is contained in one pack, which can also be flown in and brought to forces operating in the field.
“Attentive as ever to the needs of the forces in the field, Commtact has developed an easy-to-operate and fast to deploy (under 3 min) portable system that enables the continuous transfer of information from unmanned units to operating team at the field, under optimal conditions,” says Asaf Choshniak, Commtact’s VP of Marketing and Business Development. “As always, Commtact’s solutions enable the transfer of large volumes of information, in the shortest time and at the highest level of encryption.”
The kit enables communication by small ground units with a range of platforms, including unmanned systems with LOS (Line-Of-Sight) of up to 45 km, loitering munition, and offshore patrol vessels within 15 km of the shoreline. The complete and comprehensive solution comprises a ground unit transceiver with two end units and two omni antennas; and a ground tactical station with “BAT”, omni antenna, GPS antenna, two batteries, a directional antenna and an auto tracking system, according to the company.
The communications kit is based on Commtact’s Mini Micro Data Link System (M2DLS), a single-unit digital data link system that combines proven technologies and standards with advanced algorithms, to provide reliability and high performance, even in the harshest conditions.
