US Army WIN-T selects Ultra GRC-245C radio systems
The radios will address terrestrial transmission requirements of the tactical network modernisation for army Expeditionary Signal Battalions (ESB) to provide improved communication between WIN-T Increments and across echelons.
The GRC-245C radio is a high capacity, multi-channel, multi-band, point-to-point, and point-to-multipoint radio system with on-the-move capabilities. It is designed to be interoperable with the AN/GRC-245A/B HCLOS radios of WIN-T Inc. 1; and to complement the WIN-T Inc. 2 architecture by providing longer range, higher capacity links that help meet the significant bandwidth demands of transport convergence on the tactical network.
Ultra said that by lessening the burden on beyond-line-of-sight systems and helping resolve inefficiencies in the network, GRC-245C provides commanders greater access to critical mission data and enhances situational awareness in the battle space.
