Forward Deployable Communications in Rugged Terrain
Command level communications capability at the most forward points of operations provides increased Situational Awareness (SA) at all levels of Command and Control. In rugged terrain, having the ability to provide consistent “over the horizon” communications where there are gaps in "line of sight" communication coverage greatly increases operational effectiveness and outcomes, ensuring that the right resources are in the right place at the right time.
Attaining autonomous communications capability under austere conditions where there is no supporting infrastructure is highly challenging. Hotshots work in terrain where gaps in coverage are common and this is one of the most challenging for Communications, Command and Control. The rugged terrain that hotshots operate in is often effected by communication “blind spots or dark spots”. These types of “gaps" create poor communications conditions which puts the mission and responders at risk. Given the thousands of square miles with this type of terrain, it is nearly impossible to have reliable line of site communication coverage with existing communication approaches.
Responders who face rapidly changing and ever shifting conditions, where circumstances change in instant must maintain accurate Situational Awareness (SA) at all times to ensure correct tactical decisions are made. Effective communications closes the decision time gap and is the difference between life and death.
SemperComm is ideal for rapid deployment putting critical communications closer to the actual nerve center of operations. SemperComm provides “over the horizon” communications covering communication gaps with VHF/UHF line of site communications. SemperComm is multimode capable and provides BGAN satellite and MF communications to ensure there is always communication regardless of the conditions. SemperComm is deployable by multiple methods, and can be air dropped from a helicopter, deployed on an SUV or hand carried by two individuals for short distances. It is configurable with multiple communications suites to best meet your unique mission needs and operating conditions.
