March 11, 2021
SPAIN. Thales announced it has conducted different trials, which have demonstrated the integration capability of its radio communication solutions with the Army’s command and control systems for use cases of a command network, both at brigade and lower echelons levels.
The trials of the SYNAPS software-defined radios (SDR) and Line-of-Sight solutions showed full compatibility and new capabilities brought to the command and control and communications systems deployed and in use, such as BMS (Battlefield Management System) and PR4G radios, or eventually will be by the Army.
These trials took place as part of the Spanish Army’s Force 2035 Experimentation Plan, giving simultaneous support to multimedia services in video, voice, and other data. They were conducted under the leadership, coordination and supervision of the Spanish Army’s Information and Telecommunications Systems Technical Assistance (JCISAT), and with the attendance as observers of personnel from the Army’s Academy of Engineers (ACING), the National Cryptologic Centre (CCN) and the Directorate-General for Weaponry and Material (DGAM).
To conduct this, Thales’ Spanish teams used various communications solutions and systems to meet the present and future needs of command capability. The technology presented during the experimentation featured different military radio communications solutions such as SDR SYNAPS dual-channel/dual-band radio (VHF/UHF) and the TN4110 unit, offering Line-of-sight capability and on-the-move bandwidth.
