Secure voice communication
Tasks are complex and require efficient coordination and cooperation between individuals, which in turn requires access to a variety of communication channels of different classification levels. With TactiCall the operator can easily monitor and share information across organizations while maintaining strict multi-level security controls.

Secure Voice configurations
A typical standard TactiCall system is a standalone system that handles either "Unclassified" or "Secret" security level communication.
A TactiCall Red/Black system handling both "Unclassified" and "Secret" security levels.
Three level system provides an extra security level "Restricted" between "Unclassified" and "Secret".
VCS Secure Voice – air communication solution
The TactiCall Voice Communication Solution provides Ground/Air & Ground/Ground communication capabilities for Air Control Centres such as Air Operational Centres (AOC), Combined Air Operational Centres (CAOC), Control & Reporting Centres (CRC), Ground Entry Points (GEP), Tactical Command Post (TCP) and Last minute briefing Systems.
The solution provides an intuitive operator control interface and advanced communication management capabilities for communication set-up, mission planning and control. The solution is flexible, scalable and fully IP based in order to adjust to changing operational needs. The solution provides the required multi-level domain separation and a comprehensive set of features for radio control, telephone, intercom, conference, data link and recording services.
Ground/Air and Ground/Ground communication
TactiCall VCS allows the operators to listen to a mix of secure and non-secure communication channels and be able to speak either secure or non-secure as the situation requires.
For cost effective multi-level secure voice operations and easy crypto key management, TactiCall facilitates crypto pools for dynamic sharing of cryptos physically secured in the command centre.
A conversation with a fighter aircraft can start as non-secure and during the conversation be switched to a national or NATO secret conversation "Go Secure – by a single touch". Air Operational modes on radio-based communication are supported in this way.
TactiCall VCS can be expanded to include multiple security levels e.g. UNCLASSIFIED, Coalition SECRET and National SECRET.
ICS Secure Voice & Data Naval Communication Solution
TactiCall ICS is a fully IP based and distributed communication solution using standard COTS and MOTS. The generic and scalable architecture is suitable for both new build and upgrade programs from submarines to surface vessels.
The highly integrated communication system provides voice and data, internal and external communication including additional services such as Broadcast and Alarm, Telephony, Intercom, Entertainment and CCTV.
The TactiCall management system is a core element of the solution and provides automated communication management capabilities for communication setup, mission planning and control. The web based management system provides the operator with an overview, control and status of equipment and communication chains. For fail-safe naval operations, the system even allows for test of communication chains prior to use.
Multi-level Secure Communications
TactiCall ICS allows the operators to listen to a mix of secure & non-secure communication channels and be able to speak either secure or non-secure as the situation requires.
A conversation with another ship can start as non-secure and during the conversation be switched to a national or Coalition secret conversation “Go Secure - by a single touch”. Naval operational modes on radio-based communication are supported in this way.
Operational security is provided through access control, red/black separation, EAL5+ certified security guards and emission control plans.
TactiCall ICS can be expanded to include multiple security levels e.g.: UNCLASSIFIED, Coalition SECRET and National SECRET.
