C4i introduced the Advanced Multi-Interface Interoperable Communications Systems (AMICS) into its SwitchplusIP line at the DEFEXPO 2012 conference in New Delhi, the company announced.

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 that allows numerous disparate communications systems to be linked together at a particular location, supporting both manned and unmanned operations.

"Simple to setup and operate, the system ensures speedy access to communications assets," said Peter Harrison, C4i's managing director. "Within minutes of deployment, users can power the system up from either local AC or battery DC and connect to PABX systems, GSM/3G networks, digital and analog radios systems, VoIP and analog phones."

The system removes traditional boundaries between users with differing communication types. With features such as push-to-talk (PTT) and conferences available from telephone handsets to both conventional and two-way radios. The product is an evolution of C4i's Mobile Incident Response Trailer (MIRT)—released end of 2011—that provides similar communications system packaged in a towable 6-by-9-foot trailer for emergency response applications.

The AMICS format offers further flexibility for transportation in vehicles or aircraft and adds redundancy with its core components duplicated to better cater for mission critical applications.  The system is capable of connecting hundreds 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.

C4i has been delivering its latest generation SwitchplusIP VoIP technology to niche markets such as air defense, air traffic control, public safety and maritime ports for over six years and has continued to evolve its product offering over this period. The release of the AMICS further cements C4i's position at the forefront of this diverse mission critical communications market.
