Track24 Defence... Latency Reduced, Assets Awareness Increased (SATCOM)

[SatNews] Track24 Defence has integrated SkyWave's communication service, IsatData Pro... its  SCC TITAN solution, allowing its clients to broadcast mission-critical data, collapse time scales and save money. IsatData Pro is a joint offering from global provider of communication services for machine-to-machine (M2M) applications, SkyWave Mobile Communications, and leading provider of global mobile satellite communications, Inmarsat. In addition to delivering greater messaging capability, when integrated into Track24 Defence's SCC TITAN solution, IsatData Pro will allow customers to simultaneously transmit critical data to all units in a specified region - providing situational awareness to multiple assets at a fraction of the price of other solutions while reducing signal latency.

Giles Peeters, Defence Sector Director, at Track24 said, "The benefit of a COTS solution like ours is the speed at which we can integrate new services to suit the needs of our clients. The IsatData Pro is crucial for modern-day conflict theatres, as it can simultaneously broadcast data to multiple assets in the field, minimizing costs and timescales as a consequence. While SkyWave's traditional customer base operates in the commercial sectors, there are multiple military applications for the data transfer rates on offer here. The more information assets can supply to HQ, the better the common operational picture (COP) will be, therefore directly impacting on the result of an ongoing operation." SCC TITAN provides beyond-line-of-sight command and control via leading satellite devices specifically designed for military use which are IP67-rated and FCC and CE compliant.
