Posted 1 July 2019 · Add Comment

Ultra Electronics TCS has been awarded a five-year, sole-source, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract by the US Army for the procurement and fielding of Ultra Electronics’ ORION radio systems in support of the Army’s TRILOS Radio Program of Record.



The Army's high-capacity Terrestrial Transmission Line of Sight (TRILOS) Radio Program of Record is delivering increased bandwidth and range for network communications to Signal units that provide the communications backbone to regular Army and National Guard operational and support units. TRILOS adds to the Army's network resiliency by enabling communications in satellite denied environments.           x

The Ultra Electronics TCS ORION radio system is a software-defined, multi-channel, multi-band, multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) radio platform that provides a Unified Heterogeneous Wireless Network (HETNET) capability, supports a wide range of user requirements, and delivers resilient network operations in the harshest environments around the world.

ORION radios have unmatched ease-of-use features and transportability and are well-suited to meet today’s mobility and interoperability challenges. A broad range of planned software enhancements will ensure the ORION radio system will continue delivering innovation for years to come, in support of future Army Network Modernization objectives.             

Iwan Jemczyk, President, Ultra Electronics TCS commented: “Ultra Electronics TCS is very proud to support the US Army’s Network Modernisation Strategy.

This award demonstrates the strength of our innovative technology and is a reflection of the investments we have made to deliver these state of the art systems. We are delivering our fourth generation of radio systems for the tactical communications networks of the US Army, United States Marine Corps and Army Air Defense and we look forward to many more years of partnership to come.”
