Ellen Molin, Senior Vice President and head of Saab’s business area Support and Services, commented, “The third generation of TactiCall is able to meet the customer’s tough requirements. It combines and matches both human and tactical conditions and is easy to operate.”

TactiCall ICS is based on voice over IP technology and provides tools so that all involved parties can communicate effectively, regardless of frequency bands, standards and equipment suppliers. This is achieved by preconfigured connections through the management system or on-the-fly patches created and maintained by the operator.
