Sea: Amphibious Operations

Ultra Electronics TCS communications and EW systems support rapid and secure deployment of Army, Navy and Marine Corps networks during critical amphibious missions. TCS’ broadband radios and signal intelligence technology support joint operations and expeditionary missions. High bandwidth communications between a mothership, small landing craft and landed units maintain a common operating picture.

Deployed forces to islands and coastal areas in support of security or tactical military objectives need increased situational awareness of the expeditionary or transport fleet with ship-to-ship video links and wideband signal intelligence capabilities. Ultra TCS’ wideband communications enable rapid deployment of a high capacity IP network on land to extend ground operations while remaining connected to floating headquarters with robust ship-to-shore communication links.

Using a flexible software-defined architecture, TCS’s radio systems can support critical phases of joint amphibious missions with reliable high capacity connectivity to at-the-halt, at-the-quick-halt and on-the-move units. In natural disaster situations, these radio communication solutions maintain high capacity connectivity between land and floating centers of operations. They facilitate first responders and tactical forces joint assessment of the situation, decision making and coordinated recovery actions while supporting telemedicine services. Data traffic management solutions facilitate use of SATCOM for BLOS reach back to home base. TCS’ EW systems provide both ELINT and COMINT capability at sea and on the shore.

Suited for:

  • Ship-to-ship and ship-to-shore communications
  • Communications and non-communications intelligence monitoring
  • Quickly deployed land bases and command posts
  • Natural disaster recovery missions
