From the solider in the field to the commander hundreds of miles away, communication is often the key to mission success. UHF TACSAT channels are in short supply, and US and Coalition forces need to exercise command and control of widely dispersed units in austere environments without the delay of deploying terrestrial infrastructures or the burden of protecting and sustaining them.

L-TAC from TrustComm extends the capabilities of the military’s existing hand held radios to deliver mobile Beyond Line of Sight (BLOS) communications quickly, inexpensively and with practically no required training to those with an operational need.

 

Delivering VHS & UHF Over L-Band Capabilities

Designed with the soldier in mind, L-TAC from TrustComm leverages Inmarsat’s proven communications network and Spectra’s Slingshot™ – a small, external adaptor for military radios – to enable existing in-service tactical radios to provide BLOS.

L-TAC from TrustComm is fully flexible and designed to meet the military’s security and reliability requirements in the most cost-effective manner possible. Once deployed, remote management and support is provided though a 24/7 secure network operation center.

Additionally, the service offers a combination of reliable voice and data connectivity that is available globally, independent of local infrastructure. It is quick to set up, providing a fully configured solution requiring minimal user intervention before deployment. Solutions are available for both vehicles and the dismounted soldier, and can be leased for a fixed period (minimum duration one month), providing assured access throughout.
