BAE Systems To Display C31 Capability (Oct. 11)

BAE Systems will showcase some of its latest communications solutions at the 2001 Chief of Army Conference to be held at the Australian Defense Force Academy (ADFA) in Canberra, 9-11 October 2001.

BAE Systems is demonstrating a variety of solutions for rapidly deployable, ruggedised and secure communications requirements. The equipment provides broadband communications to support a number of applications including command support systems, file transfer, telephony and videoconferencing.

Being highly portable and easy to integrate with COTS and legacy defense equipment, the equipment provides the ultimate in flexibility for today's warfighter.

"In today's heightened defense environment it is difficult to predict the exact communications requirement for our deployed Australian Defense Force (ADF) personnel," said Jim Birrell, Business Development Manager- C3I, BAE Systems Australia.

"The solution on display at ADFA provides the ultimate in flexibility and is scalable depending on operational requirements. More capable equipment to support an increased number of deployed users can be added as the scale of operations dictates," he said.

"The equipment interfaces into the ADF's existing strategic and tactical information environment and provides a person equipped with a briefcase to establish secure communications with home base from anywhere in the world," he said.

BAE Systems will display the following recently released equipment:

Liaison Officer Briefcase System (LOBS), complete with secure videoconferencing and data connectivity

Deployable ATM Hub Assembly (DAHA) for secure, environmentally sealed ATM access over satellite

Digital Subscriber Line Fiber Interface (DSLFI) for flexible broadband data, voice and video communications across inexpensive and rapidly deployable DON-10 cable already in service in the ADF
