Modern operations demand a flow of accurate information in the right place, in the right way, and at the right time. The consequences of information gaps or misinformation could be catastrophic to people and platforms, including the risk of fratricide.
Proven command and control systems deliver information advantage in near-real-time, allowing quick and informed decisions based on an accurate picture of the situation on the ground.
In October last year, Ultra received a $11 million order to upgrade Tunisian Command and Control System. The order was placed through the U.S. Navy International Program Office.
Per the contract, Tunisia’s Joint Operations Command Centre (JOCC) will be integrated with a Common Operational Picture (COP) system that “provides integrated data from multiple sources to enhance the ability to securely share information across the Tunisian military, including Type 1 encryption.”
The C2I system financing will be carried out by the US Building Partner Capacity Case funds.
The system chosen by the Tunisian Air Force (TAF) is Ultra’s Air Defense System Integrator (ADSI), it will allow the Tunisian army to have a real-time view of the activities of its forces and radar coverage and centralized communications. The ADSI is “currently the only C2 [command-and-control] system that meets the requirements for this effort, including interfacing with Tunisian infrastructure”.
It aligns the Tunisian systems with the equipment of the US Africa Command Theater Campaign Plan line of effort. It will allow interoperability with US forces and guarantee their security.
According to Ultra, it’s Air Defense Systems Integrator (ADSI®) and Situational Awareness Management System (SAMS) will be integrated into the Tunisian Armed Forces at various locations including the Joint Operations Command Center (JOCC) and will deliver full-spectrum C2I that serves as a real-time bridge between tactical data links, sensors, and intelligence data.
ADSI’s family of advanced multi-domain products provides a fused, correlated, real-time picture of the battlespace required to execute increasingly complex missions.
Multi-domain surveillance with efficient mission planning, rehearsal, execution and verification of mission objectives will enhance TAF’s ability to train and react to these mission objectives.
ADSI had been deployed in over 30 countries, 2500 installations and is one of the world’s most trusted C2I solutions.
“We are extremely pleased to continue our trusted partner relationship with the Navy International Program Office being selected to provide the C2I solution for the Tunisian Armed Forces. The ADSI’s flexibility and best of class performance in providing both the Common Tactical and Common Operational Picture through the fusion of sensors, intelligence and tactical data links will provide the TAF reliable and interoperable multi-domain operations across Tunisia,” said Jill Daiber, President of Ultra, Command, Control and Intelligence. “This effort is yet another example of Ultra’s dedication to those on the front lines and our international customers as we ‘Innovate Today for a Safer Tomorrow’.”
