Saab has signed a contract with the Norwegian Defence Material Agency, to provide a complete communication system, TactiCall ICS, on board of three different ship classes for the Royal Norwegian Navy. The Norwegian Defence Material Agency (NDMA) has selected TactiCall Integrated Communication System (ICS) to replace the existing communication system for both internal and external use on-board, including multi-level secure communication – unclassified, restricted NATO secret and national secret communication channels.
TactiCall will be integrated on the following ship classes: Mine Countermeasure Vessels (MCM), the Skjold-class Corvettes and the Coast Guard Vessel (CGV) Svalbard. Deliveries will be from 2021 to 2024 across seven of these Norwegian ships. TactiCall ICS enables access to a variety of communication channels on different classification levels, increasing operators’ efficiency in managing operational duties.TactiCall ICS enables access to a variety of communication channels on different classification levels, increasing operators’ efficiency in managing operational duties.
“We have a long-term partnership with the Royal Norwegian Navy and we are looking forward to replacing existing communication system with our innovative TactiCall system on these additional three classes of ship. TactiCall offers flexibility without compromising security demands which are very important in the naval domain,” says Mats Wicksell, Head of Saab’s business unit Combat Systems.
Being completely modular, Tacticall ICS will allow you to put together the functionality needed to support your operational requirements spot on. It makes up the centerpiece in remote controlled setups from single radio to complete operations. Integrating seamlessly with third party equipment, legacy or new, it will protect prior investments and prolong the lifespan of your existing systems as well. The intuitive and modern user interface will guarantee secure and reliable operations within every operational setup, be it within international or joint coalitions, own force squadrons or single ship operations. In every way TactiCall constitutes a robust and highly survivable system with no single point of failure.
