Multimode and multimedia interactive communication for intelligence and information collaboration that operates on the latest Android 4.0 operating system for both handhelds and tablets.
Bi-directional network database access through Raytheon's THUNDR product, providing access to DCGS and comparable data sources.
Portable, light-weight and feature-rich capabilities that include FIPS 140-2 encryption compliance, full motion video, buddy tracking, secure chat with attachments, status, incident and situation reports and more.
