REDCOM enhances mobile communications

To prepare for future engagement, today’s militaries will require an outbound expeditionary posture to gain the advantage over adversaries whose technologies limit the chance of long build-up and employment cycles that require larger logistic footprints to support the missions at hand.

Future operating modes show that mobility and distributed forces are critical components, particularly when engaged in the littorals where expeditionary operations need a significant amount of surface lift. Forces need to be light and fast with capable of communication across all environments – disconnected, limited, or intermittent – while sustaining command and control functions without the luxury of a subject matter expert on-hand.

Expeditionary communications are also used by Humanitarian/Disaster Relief organizations that respond to crisis circumstances using rapidly-deployed human resources. First Responders deal with this daily. Large, cross-organizational communications are critical, as well as the ability to quickly interoperate with regional agencies with the capabilities needed for specific requirements.

REDCOM: ideal for expeditionary communications

REDCOM solutions are uniquely designed for utilization in the expeditionary environment. They establish connectivity in disconnected, limited, and intermittent environments. They are designed with an emphasis on interoperability for a coalition or joint approach while incorporating security features and attributes from start to finish.

Systems, devices, and applications used for command and control will need to incorporate the following attributes:

  • Low Size, Weight, and Power (SWaP)
  • Ease of configuration and use
  • Capable of leveraging available architectures (IP, TDM, Radio, Analog). This includes host nation or organic communication paths associated with specific geography.
  • Interoperability
  • Security
