Curtiss-Wright’s Defense’s Tactical Communications Group (TCG) business line has been awarded a contract by Switzerland’s armasuisse Federal Office for Defence Procurement to provide systems for its air and ground Test Evaluation and Engineering Support Systems (TEESS).

This includes the provision of Battlefield Operations Support System (BOSS) software to upgrade Switzerland’s air TEESS, as well as the Ground Tactical Data Link System (GTS) hardware and software to replace Switzerland’s legacy ground TEESS. 

This upgrade includes simplifying the existing air and ground configurations while adding support for the Link 16 Multifunctional Information Distribution System joint tactical radio systems and Block Upgrade 2 terminals. 

TCG will also perform additional systems engineering to integrate BOSS with the Pilatus PC-12 test aircraft's navigation system, as well as air TEESS roll-on/roll-off hardware.

Deliveries for this began in Q2 of 2019 and will continue until Q1 of 2021.
