This trial allowed the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD) to assess and prove that Falcon can be deployed to deliver the required military capability. During the trial data was successfully exchanged and networks linked across six main locations in the UK.
Our team has now started delivering Falcon installations to the MoD in preparation for handover to the users from the Royal Air Force and the Royal Corps of Signals. This delivery plan will continue to run through to the middle of 2013.
In parallel with this activity, we have also commenced the Contractor Logistics Support (CLS) element of the programme. This includes support to operations, a spares and repairs service, technical help desk and a technical query service.
Brigadier Andy Bristow said: “FALCON offers the potential to be the deployed terrestrial architecture of the future, delivering an information space that the Armed Forces can be proud of for the 21st century”.
Our Falcon Tactical Communications System is a ruggedised, secure, deployable broadband voice, data and video communications network. Information can be the difference between winning and losing, understanding your enemy before he understands you is vital. Falcon delivers a competitive advantage on the frontline.
