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

requirements and resilient network operations in contested and congested
