Collins Aerospace has been awarded a contract to supply the next generation Digital Terminal Control Systems (DTCS) under the Australian Defence Land 17 Phase 2 program.
This is a follow on from the original Phase 1 program that Collins have been supporting for over 10 years. The DTCS is a targeting system utilised by Joint Terminal Attack Controllers (JTACs) and Joint Forward Observers (JFOs) to request and coordinate support missions delivered by land, sea or air platforms.
A spokesperson from the ADF said, “The ADF and Collins Aerospace have developed a partnership building and sustaining the current in-service system. As an industry partner they have looked to improve the next generation DTCS equipment and have established a support program to ensure current and future interoperability with joint force and coalition platforms.”
