AUSA 2014: ROBOTEAM to launch TacSA C2 system
ROBOTEAM will launch a new portable command and control system designed for all-user, real-time ISR feed sharing at AUSA 2014.
The Tactical Situational Awareness (TacSA) system can stream up to four video channels simultaneously, providing a complete live picture of the operational area in a server-less system using a distributed network with no single point of failure.
The system was developed to meet the challenges of reliable tactical situational awareness while connecting and managing multiple dismounted forces, first responders, and systems working in the same area.
Capabilities include real-time geo-location tracking of all operators, allowing all users to communicate with each other, and individually view ISR feeds. Users can instantly send on-map telestration, capture and share chats, pictures, and files, as well as navigation and reference points.
The TacSA system works on a secure, closed, self-healing, server-less mesh network, and can be supplied on ROBOTEAM’s ROCU 5 personal handheld controller, or on other smart platform with Windows and Android operating systems.
ROBOTEAM worked in partnership with the Combating Terrorism Technical Support Office (CTTSO) on development to meet the requirements of several Department of Justice and Special Operations Forces users.
Shahar Abuhazira, CEO, ROBOTEAM North America, said: ‘The TacSA is based on extensive operational experience and the needs arising from the field - as well as conclusions drawn from recent events.
‘The unique advantage of the system is its delivery of a complete and live picture of the arena, enabling every user to communicate and view events from multiple angles of the field, thanks to its ability to handle four video channels simultaneously. This capability provides unprecedented situational awareness to forces operating in the arena.’
