Thales in Australia will conduct the design activities for the C4I system that will be installed in the vehicles, integrating customer furnished radios and systems into the intercom system.

Thales in the Netherlands will supply Sotas Lite, Thales’s new Crew Intercom System. The first Sotas systems were installed in the Australian Bushmaster programme in 2009/2012; this will be the third platform within the Australian Defence Force in which Sotas will be integrated.

“This contract shows that the Sotas range is one of the world’s leading systems in its field. The new Lite version offers the same proven quality as the regular system.” Marcel Grisnigt, Head of Radio Communications Products in the Netherlands.
