Land Command Support System Tactical Communications Modernization

Replace Existing Systems


The project will improve the ability of tactical commanders and their staffs to exchange planning and execution information by modernising and re-capitalising the in-service tactical communication systems. The project will provide robust, reliable, and adaptive bearer systems and management tools for use in connecting mission elements engaged in land operations.


The requirements are to be defined but should include Land Force omni-directional radio frequency (RF) and next generation beyond line of sight (BLOS) capability components to carry voice and data from commanders to warfighters. All communication emmission/receiver systems from formation to dismounted soldier will be addressed, including vehicle intercommunication capabilities. It will also include planning and management tools to support effective friendly use of the electromagnetic spectrum and gateway systems to interface with the Joint, Interagency, Multinational and Public systems.
