Rheinmetall and Intracom Defense of Greece have agreed to cooperate closely in the field of vehicle-based C4I (command, control, communications, computers, and intelligence) systems. The two companies will coordinate their activities for joint development and marketing of a vehicle-based C4I system to jointly address the needs of their domestic and international markets. Both partners complement each other in ideal fashion: while Rheinmetall Electronics concentrates on command and communication systems for communication between vehicles and the chain of command, Intracom Defense is a globally acknowledged specialist for intercom systems that enable crewmembers to communicate with each other.
Under the cooperation agreement, Rheinmetall and Intracom Defense will pool their technological, production and commercial capabilities to produce operationally excellent, user-friendly, cost-efficient C4I solutions for military vehicles – invariably geared to the needs of the customer. In concrete terms, cooperation will centre on combining Rheinmetall’s TacNet tactical management system and expertise in soldier systems and C4ISTAR applications with Intracom Defense’s WiSPRevo communication and information system and longstanding experience in the field of vehicle communications.
Intracom Defense (IDE) is part of Intracom Holdings, a corporate group with €522 million in annual sales, some 2,900 employees and activities in over 70 countries. One of Greece’s foremost defence contractors, IDE can point to major successes both at home and abroad.
