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.
