Satellite based Blue Force
Movement Tracking

Comtech Mobile Datacom

The company  which supplied much of the Blue Force and Movement Tracking add-ons for the US Army FBCB2 system currently operational in Iraq, is developing an extension which can cover British Army Bowman tactical communications program. The integrated system, utilizing commercial L-band satellite communications, will provide integrated situational awareness picture for the two armies and reducing the risk of fratricide. Each army is responsible for the generation of its situational picture. The two pictures are then combined into common operating picture which can be displayed back at the individual vehicle level, showing all coalition friendly forces. Similar integration is planned between US and Republic of Korea forces.

Dec. 21, 2006: Comtec receives $2.7 Million order for FBCB2 related satellite transceivers.
