General Dynamics Canada to Supply Tactical Mobile Routers to United Arab Emirates-based Emiraje Systems

February 2, 2012 | News Release


OTTAWA, Ontario, February 2, 2012 - General Dynamics Canada has received a contract to supply more than 2,700 Tactical Mobile Routers (TMR) for use in the Emirates Command and Control System (ECCS), a Command, Control, Communication, Computer, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) program that will integrate and coordinate the tactical assets of the United Arab Emirates. The contract was awarded by Emiraje Systems, the UAE-based prime contractor for the ECCS.

Integration of the TMR into existing C4ISR networks offers an affordable, dependable option to extend the life of legacy networks while adding new internet-like applications.

Deployment of the General Dynamics TMR enables the creation of ad hoc mobile networks that automatically form, reconfigure and operate even when networks are disrupted, overloaded or unavailable. Critical store-and-forward capabilities ensure continues flow of voice, data and Blue Force Tracking in rugged and remote military environments with communications infrastructure.

"General Dynamics Canada worked closely with the Emiraje systems network design team to ensure that the TMR was able to address the most extreme requirements including some of the harshest, most challenging and remote environments that are open to network disruption," said David Ibbetson, General Manager of General Dynamics Canada. "With the deployment of the TMR, UAE is adding strategic capability that ensures their soldiers have access to the type of reliable, continuous and ubiquitous Internet-like communication in the battlefield that we all have become accustomed to in our daily lives".

General Dynamics Canada is a leader in the development and implementation of tactical internet systems worldwide. The company also delivers airborne and underwater Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) systems for the international market.

General Dynamics Canada is a part of General Dynamics C4 Systems, a business unit of General Dynamics (NYSE: GD).
