Thales unveils GeoMux
Thales has unveiled the newest addition to its Battlefield Management System (BMS), the GeoMux Electronic Protective Measure (EPM) VHF waveform. The system is designed to simultaneously provide three main services: voice, data and Blue Force Tracking.
According to Thales, in addition to providing three high quality services simultaneously, voice, data and GPS position, GeoMux also includes a unique transverse communication capability allowing the radio to operate simultaneously on two independent radio channels. The first channel is used for normal voice and data traffic while the second channel is used to exchange geographical data.
With network centric operation, the need for information increases significantly, Thales said. Today, it has become essential to efficiently interconnect the various actors in military operations at all levels, from national Joint Headquarters down to soldiers in remote areas. Seamless interoperability is the key word, enabling cooperative operations with allied forces over legacy and future networks.
According to the company, the GeoMux system supporting these new capabilities and meets all user operational requirements in a single radio equipment. From now on, GeoMux waveform will equip all PR4G F@stnet radio models - handheld, manpack and vehicle stations. More than 150,000 PR4G F@stnet radios are used in operation by numerous armies worldwide.
