August 09 2023

UNITED KINGDOM—August 9, 2023—Ultra Intelligence & Communications (Ultra I&C) has been named a supplier for the United Kingdom’s Crown Commercial Service’s Network Services 3 (NS3) Framework (RM6116) for Lot 1c – Tactical Radio Systems.

Ultra I&C will be the authorised distributor of the ORION radio family of systems to the UK Ministry of Defence and other public sector organisations. Under this contract, public sector organisations can purchase Line-of-Sight (LOS) tactical radio communication systems in a straightforward, commercial means – either by direct award or competition.  The Tactical Radio sub-lot within the NS3 Framework includes a wide scope for radio subsystems, which extends beyond Soldier System radios to include high-capacity line-of-sight systems.

"Ultra I&C’s Communications business is looking forward to working strategically with the UK MoD to ensure it has the latest capabilities in the field of high-capacity tactical communications," said Alain Cohen, President of Communications.

The ORION radio system is a software-defined, multi-channel, multi-band, MIMO radio platform capable of supporting a diversity of user requirements in contested and congested environments. Network interoperability with third party radio systems is achieved by working with key partner waveform providers.

Crown Commercial Service supports the public sector to achieve maximum commercial value when procuring common goods and services.  In 2021-22, CCS helped the public sector to achieve commercial benefits equal to £2.8 billion–supporting world-class public services that offer best value for taxpayers.
