Tactical Communications System

Spectra Group
Tysons, VA

Spectra Group (US), a specialist provider of secure voice, data and satellite communications systems, specifically optimized for use in remote and challenging environments, has been selected by the US DoD to take part in the 2019 Army Expeditionary Warrior Experiments (AEWE 2019) at Fort Benning.

The Army Expeditionary Warrior Experiment (AEWE) is the US Army’s premier venue for small unit modernization, providing capability developers, the science and technology (S&T) community, and industry with a repeatable, credible, rigorous, and validated operational experiment, supporting both concept and material development. The AEWE is an annual campaign of experimentation to place cutting edge prototype technologies into the hands of soldiers to solve small unit tactical problems.

The Manoeuvre Battle Lab, as part of the Army Futures Command (AFC), executes AEWE to accelerate near and midterm Army modernization and provide bottom up input to capability development, by providing early and iterative feedback on prototypes in a tactical setting. AEWE is actually the “first step” of a larger Army and Joint Experimentation enterprise.

Being demonstrated at AEWE is Spectra’s SlingShot, which converts UHF and VHF radio to SATCOM L-Band frequency, enabling users to maintain real-time, tactical and strategic, beyond line of sight communications on the move (BLOS COTM) in all situations and locations. In addition to standard voice and data C2, it can enable capabilities such as remote biometric analysis, fire mission planning, tracking and inter-agency operations. SlingShot is man-portable; vehicle, maritime or aviation-borne; useable on the move; and delivers flexible channel leasing, all with a minimal increase in training-burden.
