Puts shared situational awareness framework into spotlight ahead
Frequentis, a leading international supplier of communication and information systems for businesses with safety-critical tasks, has been providing the defence market with mission-critical communication, information and surveillance systems for over seven decades.
The Frequentis shared situational awareness framework, designed specifically for the defence sector, allows customers to address inter-agency collaboration, improving response times and the coordination of resources in the event of a national crisis. The group of solutions can be tailored to meet customer needs in a scalable and evolving system. When integrated with the Frequentis state-of-the-art communication systems, it provides a unique cross-domain command and control tool.
This solution is in use today for the German Armed Forces (Bundeswehr). The National Air Policing Centre (NAPC) combines numerous data sources from widely disparate military and civilian systems into a single, easy to use HMI that is coupled with a fully integrated red/black communication system. This gives unheralded access to red/black landline and radio communications together with ‘click-to-dial’ functionality. Real-time situational awareness is a core element to NAPC and this is a first step toward wider capabilities that will enable this functionality across military forces. By leveraging the technology used across rail, maritime and aeronautical industries, Frequentis is able to provide a solution that enables actionable intelligence, including the collection as well as analysis and distribution of information, to aid faster more informed decision-making when seconds count to save lives.
“Frequentis is a well-established and growing brand in the defence sector with an expanding portfolio of products and services including our innovative Remote Virtual Tower that allows Air Traffic Control to be conducted from a remote and secure location. Eurosatory is an important show in the global defence market for me and my team who will be in attendance and we will be happy to arrange meetings either in advance or during the event,” says Peter Skiczuk, Vice President, Defence at Frequentis.
Frequentis’ fully redundant, highly-available communications framework is used by joint and combined forces in today’s command centre operations – be it in the air, at sea, or on land for a number of defence projects around the globe, including voice communications for the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD). The most recent achievements include a contract to provide end-to-end Internet Protocol (IP) Voice Communications System (VCS) and Airfield Management systems (AFM) for the OneSKY program for Airservices Australia and the Department of Defence. In addition, in 2016, the Royal Saudi Airforce (RSAF) awarded the company a contract for a network upgrade and solution expansion to safety and security technology solution provider, TAJ Systems. This new solution for Aeronautical Information Management has allowed the RSAF to be globally interoperable and fully digital.
