Air: Network Extension

The sky is the limit.   Traditional fixed network ranges can now be greatly extended by leveraging unmanned systems.  Ultra's tactical communication systems support aerial relays to ensure the warfighter can always connect.

Today’s warfighter expects rapid and easy access to critical mission data anytime, anywhere.  With the increasing reliance on situational awareness, sensor & biometric information and collaboration tools, demand for bandwidth has increased exponentially.  However, terrestrial high capacity radio links can be sensitive to obstruction and path attenuation.

Ultra TCS' tactical communications systems support high system gain waveforms that provide high-capacity beyond-line-of-sight connectivity through fixed or on-the-move aerial relays, or even as a base station. Because we provide multichannel technology, a single radio can serve as a single band or cross band repeater or a base station with its own reach back communication link.

Suited for:

  • Aerial relay and airborne base stations
  • Aerostats, high-altitude airships and helicopters
  • Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV)
  • Ground based, ship-to-ship, or ship-to-shore range extension
