On the theatre of Operations, an Aircraft needs permanently to communicate securely with a lot of assets : wingman, airborne refueller, TACP, Military ATC, CAOC, etc. With the acceleration of the operations' tempo, those communications need to get not only access to voice network, but to data network whether they are standardize with TDL, or not. The threats are rising with Anti-Access / Aera Denial capabilities put also a lot pressure to secure communications.
Thales multi-mode V/UHF radio terminals offer such capabilities on a wide frequency range from 30 to 600 MHz. It also provides interoperable communication with armed forces and civilian authorities, thanks in particular to the Anti-Jamming standardize SATURN Waveform. All of those capabilities are natively embedded into the Nextw@ve and SYNAPS radio family, which can also support customized national secured waveforms. Those are available in different form factor, either for aircraft, or for ships or air defense / C2 centers.
New SYNAPS radio offers on the top of those capabilities new high data rate waveform as the European defined waveform ESSOR, or the new Intraflight AIRPOWER waveform. Thanks to it SCA compliant internal architecture, it eases portability of the waveforms between different Hardware, delivering interoperability and cost saving for a customer.
