Thales and Canada's Ultra Electronics TCS have developed a new radio.
The TN 4100 line-of-sight radio is designed for high-capacity communications using a tri-channel, dual-band 3+ and 4 IP platform, according to a Thales news release. It supports point-to-point, point-to-multipoint, on-the-move and mesh applications.
"The TN 4100's high level of performance in terms of throughput, distance, communication topology, flexibility, and security is bringing Thales' tactical network solutions a step ahead in the military communication markets," said Georges Touloupas, Thales's vice president of mobile networks.
"Our collaboration has resulted in a unified communications solution for long distance, high-capacity communications, with on-the-move and Electronic Counter-Countermeasures capabilities, in a single microwave radio that provides gigabit speeds to the battlefield," said Ultra Electronics president Iwan Jemczyk. "The TN 4100 line-of-sight radio will allow users to keep pace with technology advances, significantly reducing long term support and enhancement costs."
