The inherent security of TETRAPOL's end-to-end encryption is fundamental in defence operations.
TETRAPOL terminals transmit signals only when the push-to-talk button is pressed. This silent operation helps to keep operations secret. Hostile parties cannot find TETRAPOL users using signal scanners.
TETRAPOL can be rapidly deployed for short- or medium-term operations. TETRAPOL includes small repeaters that can be deployed in minutes and container-based solutions that can be set up in a few hours.
IP-based architecture enables seamless integration with other systems, such as IP-telephony, satellite communication and IT-technology. TETRAPOL can therefore form an integral part of a fully operational mission-critical communication system.
Rapidly deployable TETRAPOL systems have proved successful in international peace keeping and crisis management. For example the German Bunderswehr has used vehicle-mounted TETRAPOL systems in Kosovo and Afghanistan. These first systems proved so successful that the German forces have since acquired a further 30 vehicle-mounted TETRAPOL systems.
In addition to the German successes, TETRAPOL has proven itself in defence operations for France, Mexico and Spain.
TETRAPOL is part of a wider trend to user affordable commercial of-the-shelf (COTS) solutions for non-war (non-tactical) operations. Defence users can opt for more affordable, non-tactical TETRAPOL solutions in garrisons, training camps, military bases and even on board vessels.
