Saab has announced that the TactiCall VCS has been operative as part of the Mobile Air Control Centre (MACC) in the northern NATO sector of Afghanistan since 29 February, 2012. According to  13 June, 2012 company statement, the TactiCall communication setup is handling all ground/ air communication in the sector as well as the ground/ ground communication within the MACC setup including internal and external as well as SATCOM lines.

Saab said that the system has been in full operation for more than 2000 hours with an operational uptime of 99.8% which is ‘extraordinary’ under normal operational conditions.

The TactiCall system in use is a MACC mobile setup with single operator positions for combined ground/ground and ground/air communication.

The system also includes local ground/ air interfaces for internal camp-communication and secure radios (which can be used for both secure & non-secure communication); and includes mobile and remote radio sites with HQII radios for both plain and secure radio communication.
