Allen-Vanguard, the global leader in providing customised solutions for defeating Radio Frequency (RF) based terrorist and extremist threats, has been innovating with industry partners to integrate their latest ECM system (EQUINOX Next Generation) into Canadian Army Tactical Command and Control systems.
Allen-Vanguard is expanding on its existing experience of maximising the capability and flexibility of their ECM assets by utilizing the ATAK ECM Plug-in. They are now innovating with General Dynamics Mission Systems–Canada (the current provider of the Canadian Army Tactical C2 capability) to ensure that these benefits could be delivered through in-service equipment and communications infrastructure, while preparing for future electronic warfare requirements and essential modernization programs.
The integration solution provides direct C2 to the EQUINOX (NG) ECM system facilitating operational mission fills and delivers real-time enhanced situational awareness to increase the response time for quick reaction forces and support decision makers to improve operational tempo. Using the existing Army C2 system and network minimises the training burden and creates the possibility to remotely operate, exploit and reconfigure key ECM systems. This process simplifies their operation and maintenance, while reducing the size and weight of system management by removing the need for extra cables and controllers.
Steve Drover, Director Business Development said “Allen-Vanguard is committed to innovation in order to meet the challenges of the future battlespace. This exciting research and development program with General Dynamics Mission Systems–Canada is an excellent example where both companies are collaborating to maximise the capability, flexibility and operational data exploitation of existing in-service systems for the benefit of users and commanders.”
