C4i debuts deployable AMICS product
C4i recently released its Advanced Multi-Interface Interoperable Communications Systems (AMICS), the latest product in the company’s SwitchplusIP communications suite. The product is a communications hub designed for users with rapid deployment requirements with a wide range of communication assets, such as tactical air defense systems, military air traffic control, disaster recovery command centers and homeland security tactical response.
The AMICS provides a VoIP based communications system allowing numerous disparate communications systems to be linked together at a particular location, supporting both manned and unmanned operations.
The system removes traditional boundaries between users with differing communication types, with features such as Press-to-Talk and conferences available from telephone handsets to both conventional and two-way radios. With a focus on interfaces, power options and deployability, C4i sees this product as a further evolution of its Mobile Incident Response Trailer (MIRT), released end of 2011, which provides similar communications system packaged in a towable 6×9 trailer format for emergency response applications.
The AMICS format offers further flexibility for transportation in vehicles or aircraft and adds redundancy with all core components duplicated to better cater for mission critical applications. The system is capable of connecting 100’s of communications assets at a single site as well as being networked with other similar nodes providing a distributed system of systems solution where required.
