Did you know...

... that, integrated with the Giraffe, the C4I offers a compact all-in one solution with one or two operator stations in the radar cabin?

The solution can be used as a stand-alone C2 centre for GBAD operations without integrated radar.

It can also include weapon terminals that provide the user interface for the fire control of the effector.

The Giraffe Tactical Data Network creates a common real-time tactical data network between all Giraffe C2 systems involved.
