Designed for this purpose, the TASMUS-G system, with its conformity to Network Centric Warfare concept, sound IP infrastructure and its architecture open to improvements, offers an integrated solution addressing all of such requirements necessary at the tactical areas.

The Tactical Area Communication System (TASMUS) is a system that satisfies the communication requirements of the 21st century’s armed forces appropriate to the Network Centric Warfare concept.The main objective of TASMUS is to provide a near-real time picture of the battlefield; ensure a near-real time data communication necessary between weapon, sensor and command centers; provide automatic and continuous monitoring of the geographical locations of the units through a single center; and allow commanders to see the real-time tactical picture of all units within the army zone by presenting such information to command superiors, where necessary.

Today, an extensive and rapid digital data transfer between various receivers, weapon systems, computers and command centers within the tactical area has become indispensable for the survivability of tactical operations. The recent military doctrines based on mobilization and flexibility require that such data transfer is also ensured while tactical elements are in action and operation.

The Command and Control functions such as fire support, maneuver control, intelligence / electronic warfare, air defence and logistics are required to be performed simultaneously in the tactical area. This is only possible through rapid and reliable data transfer in the tactical area. The performance and support of such command control functions that require collective and simultaneous utilization of different communication services and equipment can only be realized with an integrated solution.

For this purpose, the development of a modern Tactical Area Communication System has become necessary due to the increasing requirements for communication speed in the tactical area, reliability, security, flexibility, high survivability, changing technology requirements and the delivered communication service requirements.

The communication solution provided by the TASMUS system developed by ASELSAN satisfies all communication requirements in the tactical area and offers a compact, mobile, expandable and user-friendly system to its users. The TASMUS system, which is in use by the Turkish Army, is being continuously updated and adapted in line with the technological developments and changing customer requirements. The new-generation TASMUS-G System has taken its place in the inventory of the Turkish Armed Forces in 2010. This system has been accomplished through the re-design of the first generation TASMUS System, which has taken its place in the inventory of the Turkish Armed Forces in 2000, in line with the technological developments.

TASMUS has been designed to achieve a tactical network, which is in compliance with the Network Centric Warfare concept, and has mobility, high survivability, flexibility and reliability features. TASMUS-GTASMUS has been deliveringany kinds of voice, data, and video services to its tactical area users.

TASMUS provides an uninterruptable communication necessary for the efficient command and control between the army and battalion / unit levels in military operations. Besides, it also provides interfaces required for the integration to the strategic telecommunication and data networks, and single channel CNR systems.
