Ultra I&C and TrellisWare Technologies join forces to supply the DoD with “Fight Tonight” tactical edge range extension

October 11 2023

AUSTIN, TX—October 11, 2023—Ultra Intelligence & Communications (Ultra I&C) and TrellisWare Technologies are excited to announce a new strategic partnership to bring the trusted strengths of our respective tactical communication expertise into a highly adaptable, multi-channel radio platform.

The agreement will see the TrellisWare TSM waveform is added to the waveform portfolio of Ultra I&C’s newly released, sixth generation Orion Line-of-Sight (LOS) family of radios (ORION Gen 6) designed for mobility, waveform flexibility, AI-Defined Networking (ADN) and advanced anti-jamming capabilities, to provide resilient connectivity on today’s battlefield. The TSM waveform will be available on Ultra I&C’s Orion Gen 6 dual-channel radios, out-of-the-box providing over-the-air interoperability with U.S. Army TriLOS and USMC LRS (AN/GRC-262), translating into the ability to extend the tactical edge over greater distances with the smallest electromagnetic signature.

This partnership will allow the end-user to take advantage of unparalleled operational flexibility, adaptability, and resiliency without compromise on performance in any type of operational environment.

Alain Cohen, President of Ultra I&C’s Communications unit, said “Today, we are strengthening our partnership with TrellisWare whose waveforms have been battle proven at the tactical edge.” He added, “We look forward to demonstrating our new [Gen 6] line of radios, which will bring the same legendary reliability, survivability and throughput as the currently fielded 5th generation Orion radios [AN/GRC-262], but with more simplicity, flexibility, mobility, and LPI/LPD features.”

Customers in the U.S., but also internationally, will now benefit from a more open and powerful tactical communications platform that brings the best of the market onto a single, multi-waveform, multi-band (L, S, and C) solution.

“TrellisWare is excited to team with Ultra I&C to integrate our TSM® waveform into their ORION Gen 6 family of radios, allowing users to experience a wider range of options to meet their communications needs,” said Metin Bayram, president and CEO of TrellisWare.
