Saab unveils soldier C2 and personal radio integration

4th September 2012 - 12:58 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Saab has announced that it has developed a personal radio integration for the 9Land Soldier sPAD. The company has displayed the system during the defence and security exhibition MSPO 2012 in Poland.

Saab unveiled the 9Land Soldier sPAD for the first time at Eurosatory exhibition in Paris in June 2012. The system is a similar to a portable Battlefield Management System (BMS) for use by individual soldiers: a lightweight hand-held computer with a hand-held unit that weighs 185 grams. With a 3.7-inch touch-screen designed to be usable with one hand, the system is designed to only provide information on a need-to-know-basis, bringing the relevant information to the individuals that need it at the right time. 

According to Saab, off the back of the system’s successful Eurosatory launch, the decision was taken to integrate a personal radio with the 9Land Soldier sPAD using the Radmor Personal Soldier Radio (PSR) 35010.

The PSR 35010 was selected to demonstrate the use of the radio-agnostic 9Land Soldier sPAD system to deliver ‘one of the lightest and smallest solutions of soldier C2 systems on the market’. According to the company, ‘the integrated light weight solution makes the individual soldier more efficient to perform his or her mission and provides command as well as control capabilities and computer power.’
