Advanced Multi-Interface Interoperable Communication System (AMICS)

May 8, 2012

The transportable Advanced Multi-Interface Interoperable Communication System (AMICS) provides a quickly established automated command centre. The AMICS allows personnel in deployed environments to use their existing communications equipment to quickly interoperate by connecting/dialling into the AMICS. Such flexibility provides government agencies with the ability to interoperate using existing communications equipment such as phones, radios and cellular equipment. Using DTMF to estabilish, terminate and conference calls, the AMICS provides a standalone Command and Control Centre. The C4i solution is further enhanced by its touchscreen based operator position, allowing real time C2 capabilities of all of your existing communications infrastructure.

The AMICS allows a variety of different communications sources to be automatically routed, patched, and conferenced to provide a truly interoperable communications solution. The system is software configured and provides fully redundant communications path with all key components duplicated. The product is based on C4i’s SwitchplusIP product. The VoIP solution provides seamless communications between IP, digital and analog communications devices.

The C4i AICS comes in a 10RU transit case and provides interoparability for the following interfaces via the rear demarcation panel:
