Tactical Communications Group ( (TCG), the leading independent provider of tactical data link ( ("TDL") software solutions for military test, training and operational applications worldwide, today announced that the Company has received five contracts from, and delivered its core products to, a major British communications firm, a major Pacific Rim country, Saab Systems Group and the US Air Forces in Europe (USAFE).

The British company purchased TCG's Battlefield Operational Support System ( (BOSS), the top-selling standards compliant TDL testing ( and simulation software solution on the market, for lab testing in its UK operations. The unit was ordered in May and delivered into the United Kingdom by the end of June. A Pacific Rim country finalized its purchase of a second GTS system for their Link 16 training needs. The system will ship this fall. Furthermore, in April TCG delivered multiple LinkPRO products to Saab Systems Group to integrate with their systems subsequently delivered to the Middle East. The US Air Forces in Europe (USAFE) purchased multiple TCG Ground Tactical Data Link Systems ( (GTSs), the company's realistic Link 16 training solution, for Aviano AB, Italy and Spangdahlem AB, Germany -- these units were shipped mid-July.

"We are very pleased to receive this significant opportunity to work with these well-known international industry and military organizations," said Marty F. McDonough, Founder, President and CEO. "Each of TCG's TDL solutions are uniquely designed to provide superior tactical data link (TDL) integration, testing, training and operational deployment."

McDonough continued, "TCG's products are very competitive both technically and economically, and our sales and marketing organization has made outstanding progress introducing our technologies globally. We are delighted to play such an important role in creating secure, interoperable, military communications in the air, on the ground, and on the sea."

TCG's Battlefield Operations Support System (BOSS)

A gold standard in the military test industry, TCG's Battlefield Operations Support System (BOSS) is the top-selling standards compliant TDL simulation and test software solution on the market. It allows government test organizations, industry systems providers and military R&D organizations to reliably and consistently certify tactical data link implementations to assure interoperability and conformance with military standards. BOSS can be used for tactical data link system certification, laboratory platform integration, depot-level maintenance, training or DT/OT field testing. BOSS provides comprehensive message scripting, generation, network simulation, real-time and post-test monitoring and analysis from a single integrated console.

TCG's Ground Tactical Data Link System (GTS)

TCG's Ground Tactical Data Link System (GTS) is a mobile, highly realistic tactical training and simulation system for terrestrial TDL networks. Using GTS, military air operators can now easily create live operational Link 11/16/SADL/TTNT networks from the ground and provide highly efficient, cost-effective and realistic TDL training, allowing operators to "train as they fight" and to get military forces ready for real combat. Military air units are now able to lower mission training costs, eliminating substantial fuel and operational costs associated with having jets in the air in order to provide this training.


As the company's core product, TCG's LinkPRO solution is a suite of software components that provides a custom configurable DLP for implementing tactical data links (TDLs) in advanced military communications platforms. Through an implementation that leverages object oriented design techniques and state-of-the-art implementation, LinkPRO provides connectivity and link level management for Command and Control (C2) and non-C2 tactical data systems and their host computers.
