Australian Air Force Controllers will manage mission communications with Indra's Technology

Indra will implement its new Tactical Communication Router for the Royal Australian Airforce's (RAAF) Airspace Controller teams. The delivery of these systems forms the basis of a recent contract signed by Indra with the Commonwealth of Australia. The project will last until 2014 and is scoped to deliver six systems.
Indra will provide a ruggedised, encrypted red/black, Tactical Communication Router (TCR) which will provide interoperability and connectivity to existing communications infrastructure as well as tactical Ground-Ground and Air-Ground-Air voice communications networks. These characteristics, as well as its innovative design, make this one of the most advanced and capable communication routing systems in the world.

Indras Tactical Communication Router will provide maximum operational flexibility by utilising modular configuration concepts and will be capable of rapid deployment to provide communication services to Single Service, Joint or Coalition forces whilst deployed within Australia or throughout the world.

The system is based on Indras commercially available Digital Voice Communication and Control SDC-2000 which provides the exceptional standards of performance that have become synonymous with Indras systems worldwide, both for military and civil applications. It provides a redundant architecture with proven design and components to provide outstanding reliability and availability.

The systems Control Work Position comprises a modern, high-quality Human Machine Interface which provides the operator a highly intuitive touch screen that facilitates easy access to, and control of, radios and telephone services, which can be entirely monitored and supervised by the management system.

This technology offers the Australian Defence Force a quantum-leap in safety and efficiency for the provision and manipulation of tactical communications in the international missions through the use of advanced switching technology that adeptly manages both analogue and digital signal interfaces and signaling methods and encompasses state-of-the-art VoIP capability.
