Eurosatory 2018: Spectra Group Details SlingShot BLOS COTM

Announces latest sales figures

Spectra Group (UK) Ltd,, a solutions provider of high grade information security and communication capabilities, continues to expand its SlingShot business with just over 600 SlingShot systems having been ordered across four continents since November 2017. Just over 450 systems have already been delivered with a further 211 orders awaiting completion. Since the system was launched, this brings the total number of systems shipped to over the 3,000 mark across 18 different end-users organisations.

Spectra’s SlingShot is a low SWaP system that enables in-service U/VHF tactical radios to utilise Inmarsat’s commercial satellite network for BLOS COTM. Including omnidirectional antenna for the man, vehicle, maritime and aviation platforms, the tactical net can broadcast over 1,000s kilometres between forward units and a rear HQ, no matter how or where the deployment. In addition to C2 voice, the system enables data capability, supporting mission critical applications such as; artillery fire missions, GPS tracking and biometric analysis. With reduced cost compared to traditional TACSAT, increased channel availability and almost no increase in the training burden, SlingShot is redefining tactical communications, according to the company. Spectra has strategic relationships with both Inmarsat, whose L-TAC service uses SlingShot and Airbus, which brands SlingShot as TREx services.

Spectra’s SlingShot is available to view on the Airbus stand hall 5A # C158 at Eurosatory under the brand name of TREx.

“We’re very proud of the figures we’ve announced today that prove, again, that SlingShot is fast becoming the system of choice for use by the world’s finest specialist users,Simon Davies, CEO at Spectra Group (UK) Ltd., said. “We’re receiving significant amounts of interest in our products and services from around the globe so having our capabilities show-cased by our partners at Eurosatory 2018 is another fantastic opportunity for visitors to understand the advantages of our systems”.
