March 31, 2015 - Montreal, Canada — Ultra Electronics TCS has received an order from the Canadian Army for its Ultra ORION X500-G radio.
Part of the ORION family of radios, the X500-G tri-channel radio provides best-in-class high-capacity backhaul for tactical networks interconnecting C4ISR elements. It can operate simultaneously in multiple bands (NATO band III+, NATO band IV and ISM 2.4/5.8GHz) and supports a large portfolio of waveforms (including waveforms interoperable with the currently deployed AN/GRC-245 radios). The X500-G can fulfill multiple roles such as backhaul repeater, range extension node, aggregation/distribution point, WLAN and a remote station for point-to-multipoint access at the network's edge.
Iwan Jemczyk, President, Ultra Electronics TCS, commented: “We are proud to be selected by Canada to meet its need for a high-capacity communication solution which is fully interoperable with its fielded GRC-245 High-Capacity Line-of-Sight (HCLOS) radios”.
The Ultra ORION family of Software-Defined Radio (SDR) solutions is designed to enable reliable high-capacity communications for land, sea and air operations, with over 50 different tactical modes including interoperability with thousands of previously fielded HCLOS radios in use with coalition forces across the world.
