Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) has evolved its Tac4G tactical communication system to enable it to be integrated with tactical UAS.

Developed by Elta, the Tac4G broadband tactical communications system provides robust and secure communications for military, law enforcement, border control and para-military applications. It connects end-users, sensors and weapon systems into a unified, independent, versatile network, transmitting high-volume video broadcasts to and from tactical forces.

New capabilities have been developed to add tactical UAS into the communication network, enabled by reduced weight and power consumption for UAS integration.

Gadi Shamni, executive vice president of land systems, said: ‘Military communication needs are experiencing significant growth with projections indicating even stronger growth in the coming years.

‘Communication systems need to respond to the evolving needs, Tac4G provides an ultimate solution for forces on the field that suffer from bottlenecks in secured transmission of data and high quality video. Tac4G addresses these issues with a versatile, conceptual change for the current and future battlefield. It is differentiated from other systems in offering scalability for growing data volumes.’
