Introduction
The Challenge
Military users need to command widely dispersed forces in
austere environments without the delay of deploying terrestrial
infrastructures. UHF TACSAT channels are in short-supply and
expensive.
The Requirement
To increase the number of TACSAT channels for voice and data
over tactical, theatre and strategic distances using existing
tactical radios with their in-built encryption.
The Solution
SlingShot™ - Spectra’s small, lightweight external appliqué for
military radios, allows low-latency voice and data regional
communications with the additional option of connecting to an
out-of-theatre rear based command node.
AND
L-TAC - Inmarsat’s communications network provides L-band to
L-band Beyond Line of Sight communications from a global
constellation of geostationary satellites.
