Israel Aerospace Industries Ltd. (IAI) (TASE: ARSP.B1) has unveiled its unique and advanced Combat Team Battle Management System (CT-BMS) at the DEFEXPO 2014 Exhibition in New Delhi. The CT-BMS, developed by subsidiary ELTA Systems Ltd., is specifically designed to address the challenges of tactical land forces command, control, collaboration and real-time situational awareness.
The CT-BMS connects combatants, tactical sensors, weapons systems, combat platforms, headquarters and supporting forces to create real-time common situational awareness for the entire combat team. The system integrates automation, collaboration and mission planning tools with command and control software to provide full battle planning and management capabilities down to the level of individual soldiers. The system uses multiple software servers to create a fully redundant and accessible combat team Intranet that provides secure access and services for customers.
CT-BMS was designed to support Elta's on-the-move Tac4G (tactical 4G) cellular network. The system can also operate with a wide variety of communication networks including Combat Net Radio, line of sight, or satellite communication. "The CT-BMS provides the next generation C4I system for the combat team and battalion level," said IAI president and CEO Joseph Weiss. "The system addresses the challenges of the modern battlefield with advanced multimedia BMS applications and collaboration tools that deliver voice, data and video to hundreds of users from battalion level to individual soldiers."
