Northrop Grumman's cordless communication system (CCS) is a personal and inter/intra-vehicle cordless communication system demonstrated to enhance the mission performance, effectiveness, situational awareness, safety and capability of today's combat vehicle crewman. The CCS provides the soldier and vehicle crew with a full duplex, LPI/LPD, digital voice & data link capable of communicating over short ranges thus reducing the bandwidth demands on the wide area tactical radio net(s). The system is comprised of a vehicle mounted universal adapter interface which provides the wireless interface to a wired vehicle intercom and/or directly the wide area tactical radios, and a light weight body mounted personal communications unit for each soldier. Using a patent pending proprietary protocol and system architecture, the system provides a pico-cellular virtual wireless intercom that is capable of self configuring between; a local platform repeater mode, autonomous mode when a dismounted squad is outside the range of the vehicle, and a group mode to wirelessly conference multiple vehicle platforms in close proximity. This system has entered limited low rate initial production of demonstrator systems to further evaluate the military operational utility
