OTTAWA, 25 Sept. 2011. General Dynamics Canada in Ottawa, is introducing the Tactical Mobile Router (TMR), which represents a family of battlefield data communications systems designed to deliver data where normal tactical Internet signals are too weak or disrupted to transmit voice, text, and imagery reliably on tactical computer networks.The rugged Internet routers ensure that military personnel can communicate using off-the-shelf applications, including e-mail, chat messages, and multimedia-rich shared information resources in challenging battlefield environments, company officials say.The TMR creates tactical Internet ad-hoc networks seamlessly that automatically form, reconfigure, and operate even when network infrastructure is overloaded, damaged, or unavailable due to mountainous or remote terrain, urban environments, or other conditions, General Dynamics officials say.

The TMR facilitates store-and-forward capabilities to get vital information through. The units are available in several sizes and capabilities, TMRs are appropriate for military platforms where size, weight, power, and cost are important considerations, General Dynamics officials say.
