Ultra Intelligence & Communications showcased its mobile battlefield technologies during a field exercise conducted by the Canadian Armed Forces.

The exercise, dubbed Hermes Forge, was intended to evaluate the Canadian military’s efforts to modernize and further secure its tactical network systems to meet evolving requirements.

Ultra I&C said the event exhibited the speed, resilience and reliability of its mobile command post solutions.

According to Faith Rhodes, vice president of programs for Ultra I&C’s Communications division, the exercise validated the communications solutions’ use for interoperability and expeditionary missions.

Ultra I&C demonstrated the Orion X510’s interoperability during the exercise with the X500 upper tactical network backhaul waveforms and Trellisware waveform.

The company also used a vertical height antenna system to connect with an Orion X500 radio located in the rear headquarters and extend the range of a brigade TSM network.

In addition, the demo tested Ultra I&C’s satellite communication terminal’s capability to establish and maintain communications between rear HQs and dispersed command posts.

Keith Blanchet, vice president of business development for Ultra I&C’s Communications division, highlighted the company’s proficiency in integrating its technologies.

“Ultra I&C has a unique expertise and advantage fielding satcom, LOS and troposcatter communication bearers in an integrated fashion that provides the diversity of communications options our soldiers need to be successful,” he said. “This enables network resilience and eases the burden of having to understand and operate disparate systems and tools, making it easy to set up and operate.”

The ground troops’ experience with the mobile communications solutions will inform the Canadian Armed Forces’ decision to use Ultra I&C technologies for enhanced mobile mission tactical communications in Latvia.

Ultra I&C completes the technology demonstrations following the April unveiling of its Archer beyond-line-of-site troposcatter communications system, which the company said can deliver resilient and secure communications for various military missions.
