Land Command Support System Tactical Communications Modernization
The project will improve the ability of tactical commanders and their staffs to exchange planning and execution information by modernising and re-capitalising the in-service tactical communication systems. The project will provide robust, reliable, and adaptive bearer systems and management tools for use in connecting mission elements engaged in land operations.
The requirements and exact scope are to be defined but should include replacement of tactical voice and data radios and high capacity data bearers for the CA formation and below. All communication emission/receiver systems from formation to dismounted soldier will be addressed, including vehicle intercommunication capabilities. It will also include planning and management tools to support effective friendly use of the electromagnetic spectrum and gateway systems to interface with the Joint, Interagency, Multinational and Public systems.
