In beautiful Sønderborg, DI Danish Defence and Security Association visited Saab Danmark A/S. A company that develops and delivers integrating communication solutions for naval, air, and civil security sectors.
One single platform to control all communication
Back in 1982, a company named INFOCOM, located in the Southern part of Denmark, Sønderborg developed and produced numerous information and communication systems for the defence industry. In 2000, INFOCOM was bought by Mærsk Data Defence and in 2006 finally bought by Saab, which has over 17.000 employees in over 30 countries all over the world. Today, Saab Danmark A/S is developing advanced integrated communication solutions - for both civilian and defence sectors.

Quick business growth led to an increment of employees and today Saab entity in Denmark has 140 employees and the company expects to increase the number of employees in the upcoming years.
All systems - one interface
What makes Saab Danmark A/S that unique, you might think? Why are they able to provide integrated communication solutions easily fitting both the civilian and defence sectors and providing systems that operate worldwide? The key aspect is the scalable and modular system approach and the capability of integrating any kind of communication technologies into one single platform.
- Well, it is a complex process but I will try to narrow it down as far as possible. What we do, is that we interconnect all communication technologies regardless of radio band, frequency and hardware. For example, Saab’s integrated communication solution, TactiCall, provides a friendly user interface with all communications available from a single platform, explains Swen Ventker, sales director at Saab Danmark A/S.

Information sharing on different classification levels
The TactiCall Voice Communication System (VCS) offers certified multi-level secure communication for up to NATO Secret level. The solution provides an intuitive operator control interface and advanced communication management capabilities for communication set-up, mission planning and control. TactiCall VCS allows operators to listen to a mix of secure and non-secure communication channels and simultaneously be able to speak either secure or non-secure as the situation requires.
For example, a conversation with a fighter aircraft may start as non-secure and during the conversation be switched to a national or NATO secret conversation. In other words: You are going secure with a single touch. TactiCall VCS can be expanded to include multiple security levels e.g. Unclassified, Coalition Secret and National Secret.
