The Italian Air Force (Aeronautica Militare – AM) is often exercising its operative capacity to be ready at any moment in time to intervene where peace-keeping activities are required or when emergency situations occur. In these scenarios, deployable Voice Communication Systems (VCS) play an utmost important role, because they allow rapid and effective access to operational awareness and air control. The use of deployable systems becomes even more important in possibly hostile theaters, when Italy is involved in operations outside the national borders - abbreviated as OFCN (Operazioni Fuori dai Confini Nazionali).
The deployable systems provided by SITTI have been designed to guarantee the air force an extremely high level of reliability and expandability. These systems belong to the MULTIFONO® M800IP® family which is also extensively used in civil applications. Of course, the military usage has additional requirements (such as encryption, meteorological adverse conditions, temperature range, etc.) that are fully satisfied by SITTI systems. The successful experience of similar military systems being operative at various air forces around the globe is the best guarantee that the systems supplied to the Italian air force is the right answer to their special needs.
More specifically, the initial configuration of the supplied system can be easily expanded by simply adding the relevant hardware and configuring the newly added boards, without compromising nor affecting the current operations. Duplication of all network elements ensure the absence of any single point-of-failure that may jeopardize the system usage. Radio connections, telephone links, intercom facilities, legal recording are part of the system itself, so as to provide the air force with all needed resources for a very rapid tactical deployment in any operative scenario.
