Cassidian recently presented the broadband vehicular router, BVR700 in Paris.
This router is a ruggedized vehicular router whose purpose is to provide wireless broadband data to various IT equipment deployed inside vehicles, specially designed to give demanding users resilience and security.
It features an LTE 700/UMTS module that delivers fast, responsive broadband wireless communications to public safety first responders – ensuring anytime, anywhere access to mission-critical field applications.
A modular architecture makes the BVR700 even more versatile and allows for easy upgrades to additional networks operating in specific LTE bands by simply adding plug-ins, i.e. either standardised wireless mini modules (PCIe – Peripheral Component Interconnect express) or external modems. The modular approach ensures that the BVR700 can be upgraded when new wireless technologies become available. Existing modems can be added via Ethernet or USB connections. The BVR700 allows a smooth evolution by implementing commercial 3G today while being ready for future LTEs.
The BVR700 automatically selects the best wireless connectivity from the available bearers, including 4G LTE and commercial bands, as well as Wi-Fi. The selection of the best available connectivity depends on the module configuration and the quality of service (QoS). This process is completely seamless for the user, since the bearer automatically handles the intelligent algorithms in the BVR700, which also ensures that bandwidth allocation is enhanced for maximum performance.
The BVR700’s superior shock, vibration, temperature and water specifications result in a modular and rugged design that meets public safety durability requirements, meaning that it can be installed in a wide variety of vehicles, including cars, trucks, tracked vehicles and motorcycles.
An integrated 2-port Gigabit Ethernet switch makes it possible for the BVR700 to host a number of different clients, including laptops and in-vehicle terminals, as well as portable and fixed high-definition video cameras. The BVR700’s WLAN access point creates a hotspot that extends coverage outside of the vehicle to portable Wi-Fi-enabled devices.

Cassidians TRS-4D naval radar for the German Navy F125 class frigates has been successfully demonstrated its reconnaissance and surveillance capabilities. The tests were conducted over several weeks
Cassidians Sagitta UAV demonstration project has entered the integration phase; a flight demonstrator will be built to show advanced UAV technologies, with the first Sagitta flight scheduled for 2015, according to a Cassidian announcement. Defense News have reported that the first wind tunnel tests have been completed on the Sagitta demonstrator, which will be a tailless flying wing with a wingspan of 12 meters, and built at a 1:4 scale
Cassidian has been selected by German Armed Forces in order to upgrade their identification systems to NATOs new “Mode 5” IFF standard. Germany is taking the pioneering role in the modernisation of all NATO identification systems, whose task is to differentiate between friendly and enemy aircraft and thus to reduce the risk of friendly fire
