TWINCOM (THALES Wireless Naval Communication System) is based on adapted COTS equipment, including special housings for the equipment for naval use, as well as modifications of the transmitter.
It uses the UHF band (alternatively VHF band) and can be employed for Local wireless areas or ship-wide wireless communications (including a leaky feeder antenna network).
It is possible to define teams, connections (selective call), as well as priority handling of emergency calls.
There is a choice of interference-free frequencies within the UHF (or VHF) band to avoid crosstalk.
The system also allows for interfacing to an existing Internal Communication System and PAS/Alarm System.
TWINCOM TETRA® is using the TETRA standard.
