LONDON, September 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
New radio system providing multichannel high-capacity connectivity across networks
The Ultra ORION radio solves many problems for maritime organisations, both in the defence and public safety sectors; it is suitable for a wide variety of missions such as anti-piracy, counter-terrorism and border or coastal security.
Paul Zweers, Vice President, Business Development & Strategy, Ultra Electronics, TCS stated: "One of the main issues facing smaller maritime platforms, such as patrol boats, is lack of connectivity to the Common Operating Picture. Currently, these platforms cannot send or receive video or large map files and have very limited interoperability with other vessels, agencies and shore-based headquarters. The addition of an Ultra ORION data node on each platform will greatly enhance mission effectiveness." With the Ultra ORION radio system, maritime assets will be able to deliver high-definition video exchange, increased situational awareness, sensor fusion and relay capabilities to support beyond-line-of-sight operations.
Ultra ORION is the 4th generation of high-capacity line-of-sight (HCLOS) radio manufactured by Ultra Electronics, TCS. This multi-channel, multi-band radio system performs the role of high-capacity backhaul for tactical networks interconnecting C4ISR elements. It can also act as a backhaul repeater, range extension node, an aggregation/ distribution and access point, a WLAN or a remote station at the network's edge.
This revolutionary radio system will be on display at booth S2-380 of the DSEI tradeshow, taking place from 10th to 13th September, 2013
