EADS Defence & Security (DS) is presenting a compact, mobile secure high-speed TETRAPOL radiocommunications prototype at Eurosatory for the first time. This equipment belongs to the new EADS Defence & Security family of mobile military IP radiocommunications networks, called Milicor®.
This new mobile network combining TETRAPOL and high-speed technologies is designed to provide voice and data communications in a temporary field of operations, as well as to connect high-speed data transfer applications. Its robust design is perfectly adapted to operational use by the armed forces in demanding conditions, and its compactness makes it easy to deploy and integrate in vehicles.
Milicor® mobile military IP radio networks benefit from the systems widely deployed in connection with various NATO operations, particularly by British, German, French and Spanish forces in Kosovo and Afghanistan. A Projectable Telecommunication Network (PTN) has been in service with French gendarmes in Kabul since the first quarter of 2010 as part of an Afghan police training mission. This temporary radio coverage makes it possible to offer encrypted phone and data services to several thousand subscribers over an area of 5,000 km².
Battlefield digitisation is significantly raising the communication throughput requirements. The high-speed transmission systems offered by DS are a
esponse to this new challenge.
EADS Defence & Security has provided complete professional mobile radiocommunications (PMR) solutions to customers from the civil security
and defence sectors since the 1990s. DS possesses the highest level of competence on the world radiocommunications market, thanks to its proficiency in TETRAPOL, TETRA, P25 and high-speed technologies. DS has deployed more than 200 networks in 68 countries to date.
