Comtech Mobile unveils BFT-HC system

The mobile tracking system enables soldiers with timely access to critical information across the battlespace

By CBR Staff Writer

Comtech Mobile Datacom, a subsidiary of Comtech Telecommunications, has launched its next-generation Blue Force Tracking High Capacity system for satellite-enhanced asset tracking and secure mobile data communications.

Developed to meet the US Army’s demanding requirements for its next-generation mobile tracking system, the Blue Force Tracking High Capacity (BFT-HC) system ensures the flow of information across the battlespace, giving soldiers timely access to critical information when and where it is needed the most, according to Comtech Telecommunications.

Comtech Telecommunications claims that its BFT-HC mobile tracking system delivers better performance through its three core components: advanced software defined radio transceivers, improved ground station equipment featuring adaptive multi-user detection signal processing technology, and enhancements to battle-proven satellite communications network.

According to Comtech Telecommunications, the BFT-HC system frees the army from pressure to immediately replace or retrofit legacy equipment in order to implement tomorrow’s technology today.

With BFT-HC, the army can reportedly leverage its existing BFT technology investment, continuing to use its 80,000 plus installed transceivers and world-wide support infrastructure while transitioning to the next-generation BFT mobile tracking system.

Fred Kornberg, president and CEO of Comtech Telecommunications, said: Comtech Mobile Datacom developed the BFT-HC solution with an eye toward the army’s future requirements for reliable, secure on-the-move communications. Drawing upon our strong legacy of mobile network experience, we are delivering an evolutionary system that is both compatible with our customer’s existing equipment and infrastructure and future-proof.
