Beyond Line of Sight Tactical Radio Range Extension

Manpack Radio Range Extender

SlingShot is a cost-effective and straightforward way to achieve C2 Beyond Line of Sight (BLOS) Communications on the Move (COTM) over 1000+ kms, using in-service tactical radios. The SlingShot system uniquely works on all platforms with the majority of UHF and VHF radios; enabling L-Band Satcom using Inmarsat’s L-TAC global network.
