    • Niche sensor and effector products that enhance operator/soldier Lethality and Survivability
  • Tactical Edge Data Integration and Processing Layer
    • Enabling Modularity and Adaptability
    • Team Awareness Kit (TAK)
    • MESH Communications solutions
    • Power and Security Management
    • Supporting EUDs, Hubs and mission manager hardware
  • Enterprise Command and Control (C2) Gateway Layer
    • Modularity and Adaptability through integration into higher level Land C4ISR open systems architectures via common messaging and data standards

TASCS IFM (“Integrated Fires Module”)

  • Extends the TASCS app to “Joint Fires” on indirect fire weapons like mortars, grenade launchers, heavy machine guns, rocket launchers, artillery and more.
  • Converts these ”dumb” legacy weapon systems to “smart” precision weapons without any modification to the weapon or ammunition.
  • Fits squarely with most “Joint Fires” modernization programs in the U.S. and other NATO countries.
