Demand in the Middle East for ‘total systems integration’ in C4I reflects a broader interest in developing robust joint operating capabilities.
Indra launches advanced mission system
Indra Sistemas on 2 November unveiled its Talium advanced mission system to facilitate the planning of complex missions involving numerous and diverse aircraft types.
Talium increases the efficiency, speed, coordination, and security of deployments, the Spanish company announced.
It added that Talium and its airborne version TDMS are ready to operate in a 'combat cloud' environment, supporting effective real-time decision-making to intervene in highly digitised and asymmetric scenarios and respond to advanced adversaries.
The solution allows commanders to plan and conduct complex operations with accuracy, coordinating the involvement of multiple aircraft, each with its different characteristics and capabilities.
Talium/TDMS includes variables related to the fuel, weight, crew, flight altitude and speed of each aircraft in the calculations, among many other parameters. It is thus able to estimate, in real-time, whether a mission is feasible and detect any problems that may arise in advance.
The system is connected to the Spanish Air Force C2 and information centre to automate tactical combat data related to routes, detected threats and identified targets, Indra added.
