Communicate Without Compromise

Our connectivity solutions are made with the unique demands of modern maritime operations in mind – from military missions to worldwide trade.

In the modern world, data is everything, and the quicker and more securely it’s transmitted, the better. DTC’s cutting-edge radio technology makes that possible, even in complex maritime situations, where infrastructure is scarce. Used by navies, law enforcement agencies and private companies, our products ensure the fast, reliable transfer of video, voice and data, through a seamless, self-forming network.

How autonomy is shaping maritime missions

Maritime communications have changed significantly in the past decade. Autonomous systems have grown in use, and there’s been an increasing dependence on sensor data to successfully run maritime operations. Being able to reliably share data has become essential in naval scenarios, including: Surveillance and situational intelligence gathering, Maritime interdiction and boarding operations, Mine counter measures (MCM), Border security and aero surveillance, and Oil and gas security.

  • COFDM: Significantly boosts penetration and range in harsh environments
  • Unique token-based managed channel access mechanism - more efficient networking and data transfer
  • MeshUltra: high data rate transmission, with bandwidth selection ranging from 1.25MHz to 20MHz
  • Supported by a range of amplifiers with output powers of 2x1W, 2W and 5W
  • Nodes also available at 2x15W.
  • Interlink mode: Enables the network to backhaul onto other communication bearers to extend the range of communication

Situational intelligence

In military and law enforcement environments, warships use a variety of unmanned platforms. These include unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), unmanned surface vehicles (USVs) and remote operated vehicles (ROVs). They enhance the range of situational intelligence, aiding the decision-making process, defensive plans and reconnaissance operations. DTC offers a range of lightweight solutions for units of every kind. For example, the 1W board weighs 95g, and the 100mW comes in at just 25g.


Boarding operations

Ship superstructures can cause RF reflection, leading to harsh RF conditions. DTC’s technology gets around this problem. COFDM-based MeshUltra Waveform in soldiers’ radios combine with drop-bag nodes to create the ideal solution for transmitting, voice, video and sensor data back to the mothership or internal team. Signals can also go via a UAV or rigid hulled inflatable boat (RHIB).


Oil and gas market

The oil and gas industries are complex, with numerous different issues surrounding them. One of the biggest issues is oil-spill response, and DTC radios have helped by providing reliable real-time updates on the flow of oil spills. This enables immediate and appropriate action to be taken.

Security is another major challenge in the oil and gas market. Using ATEX-accredited boxes, DTC has helped to connect security RHIBs with oil rig platforms, allowing security forces to relay video and voice back to the rig. Based on this data, preparations can be made in urgent situations like security breaches, oil spills or piracy.

Border and ship security

Crimes like drug smuggling, human trafficking and illegal imports are growing problems for port authorities and border agencies. Unmanned surveillance solutions can help to detect, as well as deter, criminal activity. In life and death situations, they can be vital in securing a positive outcome.

This is made possible by DTC systems, which connect land control points with UAVs and USVs patrolling the coast line.
