NEUILLY-SUR-SEINE, France, 13 Nov. 2010. Thales introduced Watcher, a full radio remote control enabling communication with every single Thales radio on the battlefield. Watcher helps armed forces improve their situation awareness while giving them the opportunity to communicate on the move, company officials say.

Carried like a wrist watch, Watcher enables warfighters to have access to the radio without stopping. This universal Man Machine Interface can connect to Thales's tactical radios including the HF (Skyf@st), the VHF (PR4G and PR4G F@stnet), the St@rMille, FlexNet, and the new F@stnet-Twin software defined radio.

Compact, lightweight, and ruggedized, the device provides a wired connection and enables wireless communication (Bluetooth) as far as 10 meters.
