Thales introduces COMTICS

19th September 2017 - 10:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Thales has launched COMTICS, a resilient, high-availability shipboard information distribution system designed to provide operational services to naval personnel at sea.

The advanced communication system is based on Thales's proven NGIN and Focon internet protocol (IP) solutions.

The system brings the useability of smartphones to the vessel, providing secure access to multimedia services, from video and data generated on the vessel to web browsing and social media if the operational situation allows. Personnel can chat with colleagues and connect to any type of military or SATCOM radio at any time.

The naval smartphone enables greater mobility on board the vessel, supporting the way communication devices are used and in turn driving greater operational efficiency.

COMTICS is built on a redundant all-IP architecture to ensure operational continuity under any circumstances. The system can support up to 3,000 simultaneous calls, is ruggedised to withstand the naval environment, and has an intuitive interface.

The entire set-up can be installed in weeks as part of a legacy system upgrade.
