Ultra TCS Receives CAD $7.1M Order from the Canadian Department of National Defence

 

Ultra Electronics TCS is pleased to announce an order for CAD $7.1M from the Canadian Department of National Defence (DND) for ORION tactical communications systems.  This latest order for ORION radios will supplement existing systems already in use by the DND.

DND chose the ORION for its small size, high-bandwidth capacity and long-range line-of-sight communications capabilities as well as its ability to be rapidly deployed.    The ORION will eventually replace all legacy Ultra TCS AN/GRC-245 radios in use by DND and will enable mobile and secure communications when the Canadian Armed Forces deploy.

The ORION radio system is a software-defined, multi-channel, multi-band, MIMO radio platform that enables a Unified Heterogeneous Wireless Network (HETNET) capable of supporting a diversity of user requirements and resilient network operations in contested and congested environments.
