Commtact set to launch new multi-platform broadband comms solution
Israeli company Commtact will unveil its new CommNet multi-platform wireless broadband communications system on 19-22 October at the Milipol event in Paris.

The real-time networked CommNet system ‘enhances real-time situational awareness in a variety of missions’ by supporting ongoing real-time communications between multiple users operating diverse platforms, Commtact claimed in an 11 October announcement.
Incorporating high-performance software-defined radios within ruggedised body-worn components, CommNet provides reliable, low-latency video, voice and data connectivity with a ‘consistently high’ quality of service for rugged multi-domain platforms, Commtact added.
