General Dynamics’ TMR 200 increases battlefield bandwidth

15th February 2013 - 15:31 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


General Dynamics Canada has launched its next-generation Tactical Mobile Router (TMR) 200, a compact, modular and flexible router that can be easily configured and integrated in a variety of platforms and wireless networks. The product has been developed to overcome the challenges of tactical environments where networks are over-burdened by the demands of increasingly complex networked assets.

The TMR 200 has the ability to handle high-bandwidth applications, ensuring reliable and secure communications even where wireless network infrastructures do not exist or when nodes are overloaded or off the network. It has been engineered specifically for in-field communications, allowing personnel, mobile command centers and central commands to share high-bandwidth applications such as situational awareness information or battle management applications, along with critical voice and data.

The TMR 200’s ‘intelligent management’ automatically adapts to network changes and maintains reliable connections in harsh environments. It uses advanced networking technologies to store and forward vital communications if a network connection is broken. This feature provides unprecedented flexibility for defence and public safety personnel who need immediate access to high-quality information over a tactical wireless network.

The system also provides the ability to interconnect with a vehicle’s electronic architecture and command, control, communication, computing, and intelligence (C4I) systems. In addition, it can easily interface with other systems to enable remote control of communication devices in a tactical mobile network.
David Ibbetson, general manager, General Dynamics Canada, said: ‘The TMR 200 has been designed from the ground up to enable defence and public safety personnel to quickly establish secure wireless networks and communicate critical situational awareness information through high-quality video and images. It improves the safety and efficiency of deployed personnel and vehicles wherever they are by ensuring they always have the most relevant information at their fingertips.’
