Spectra Group presents SlingShot and Troposcatter, BLOS communications.

SlingShot delivers command and control tactical communications over 1000s km, using in-service tactical radios. The Troposcatter COMET from Comtech complements SlingShot by providing high-bandwidth (big data) links over the horizon, negating the restrictions and operational expenditure of satellite links, and enabling operation in a satellite denied environment.

A winner of the 2019 Queens Award For Enterprise: Innovation, SlingShot is in operation across four continents in a variety of scenarios, with users ranging from Special Forces to Emergency Responders. Troposcatter is being fielded by the US DoD and various militaries around the world.
