Tactical Networks

Autonomous and reliable connectivity

Airbus Secure Communications offer simple, cost-effective and reliable provisions of secure wireless and radio networks, using both our own product solutions and augmenting best in class commercial systems. Our wireless and radio networks allow you to maintain communications in the harshest of environments and when satellite services are not an option. We use a range of commercial wireless technology, including LTE (long-term evolution), to address your large fixed sites or for when you are ‘on the move’.  Our agile solution is also 5G ready, enabling wireless cells to be provided in a wider range of deployed environments.

Tactical cells for your deployed sites

Our Everus product provides a wide portfolio of tactical cellular communications for deployed and mobile sites, an example being the French Army BLR-IP project, where this has been deployed by Airbus for more than 10 years. This large fixed site provides a 20km radius wireless cell so that users can maintain mobile connectivity over a wide deployed area.

Intelligent networks for intelligent routing

We integrate multiple bearers together in a mobile environment using our Plexos (MIPN) technology. This monitors your radio links whether satellite, microwave, combat network radio (CNR), or Private Mobile Radio (PMR) and makes the most appropriate routing decisions.

Overload and interference resistance

Airbus Secure Communications provides point microwave wireless links to provide extension to your satellite connectivity or independent connection of your deployed sites. Using our Magellan bandwidth sensing probes and our intelligent orchestration solution, we can deliver SD-WAN (software-defined networking in a wide area network) control of your wireless links to automatically re-route when they are overloaded or subject to interference/jamming.

Partnering for radio extension 

Through a partnership with the UK’s Spectra Group, Airbus Secure Communications has augmented our communications offering in ultra high frequency (UHF) by combining Inmarsat’s L-TAC commercial L-band satcom service and Spectra’s SlingShot®. TREX (TacticalRadioEXtension) is a small and lightweight device and compatible with your existing tactical radio hardware to extend your voice and data communications to areas where radio coverage is not available.
