Split second decision making in the high tech naval combat environment depends on tight integration of sensors and weapon control systems. Top performance demands flexibility for rapid response to changing conditions. This is the basis on which Thales Naval Nederland has developed the combat management system TACTICOS. This state-of-the-art system has a track record of proven performance. Fully tested at sea, TACTICOS is today operational on 160 ships and shore bases of 18 NATO and non-NATO navies around the world.
TACTICOS tightly integrates all subsystems for synchronised performance of the combat system and ship. It is designed to fully support a combat team in every stage of a naval operation, from pre-mission planning right up to post-mission analysis. This includes assessing and monitoring the tactical situation, planning and co-ordinating actions, and controlling actions and weapons.
TACTICOS is suited for naval vessels of all sizes, from one or two consoles on a fast patrol boat to 20 or more consoles on a frigate. It can be used in naval operations centres, as stand alone data link systems and planning systems, and as a shore-based training facility. Even more important, there are no limitations to the system size. Depending on the operational requirements, TACTICOS can be configured to integrate as many parts of the combat system as required.
