Tactical Communications Appliqué Provides BLOS COTM Capabilities
Spectra Group (UK) Ltd to exhibit its SlingShot tactical communications system for the first time at IDEX 2019. The company will exhibit in the British pavilion.
SlingShot is a small appliqué that provides in-service tactical VHF and UHF radios with a Beyond Line of Sight Communications on The Move capability (BLOS COTM). In addition to standard voice and data command and control, SlingShot can facilitate a wide range of capabilities such as remote biometric analysis, fire mission planning, remote tracking, border security and inter-agency operations. Man-portable or vehicle-borne (land sea and air), useable on the move, delivering flexible channel leasing and with minimal increase in training burden, SlingShot redefines tactical communication capabilities.
The system has recently received substantial international interest, particularly regarding its capability to significantly extend the range of in-service tactical radio systems without the need for users to buy new systems, carry additional bulky equipment or conduct extensive additional training.
“Spectra is very excited to be exhibiting for the first time at IDEX 2019. We intend to maximize this fantastic opportunity to establish and deepen relationships with partners, regional government departments, defence and security agencies and international businesses [….] We are especially delighted to be able to exhibit SlingShot in the MENA region as a further opportunity to follow up on the significant amount of interest that has already been generated in the system,” commented Spectra Group CEO, Simon Davies.
