C-Raid - Command & Control for RHIBS and Interceptors

C-Raid is a tactical, situational awareness, and command and control system designed for RHIBs and Interceptors used in mission scenarios from Search and Rescue (SAR) over police patrolling to special operations and special reconnaissance.


Introduction

C-RAID, Enhanced mission effectiveness

Utilizing more than 25 years of command and control experience, Terma has developed C-Raid, a tactical, situational awareness and command and control system.

Today’s conflicts and asymmetric threats put great stress on communication and decision-making. Present solutions rely on slow and error prone voice communication, and lack the situational awareness and Blue Force Tracking required to track and manage small assets – resulting in a scattered overview and reduced mission effectiveness.

C-Raid was developed in partnership with Special Operation Forces to overcome these problems by using a radio-based self-healing shared data link between C-Raid assets and fusing individual platforms into a single common real-time tactical overview – greatly expanding both operational potential and mission control including improved decision-making – and enabling multiple platforms to mobilize as one highly efficient and connected team. C-Raid has been designed to support the military, coast guard, maritime police, and border control forces in daily operations.

C-Raid provides a Common Operational Picture (COP) and enhanced mission effectiveness for all decision makers.

PLATFORMS
C-Raid can be used as a stand-alone system or on a range of different platforms including RHIB, small vessels, Interceptors, Landing Craft, and Amphibious Vessels providing a full tactical overview for situational awareness (SA). C-Raid can run on any standard based computer and on a rugged computer with a large daylight readable touch screen specially designed for use at sea and in harsh environments.

SHARED AND SYNCHRONIZED REAL-TIME SITUATIONAL AWARENESS
C-Raid provides a Common Operational Picture (COP) to all managing assets – allowing for real-time information exchange for improved decision-making and unparalleled mission effectiveness. 

SYNCHRONIZING JOINT OPERATIONS
C-Raid includes data link to provide an interface to air, land, and naval systems to boost mission effectiveness – increasing surveillance capabilities over the horizon.

ENHANCED FORCE PROTECTION
C-Raid increases crew survivability by providing own/friendly force tracking, man-overboard, and last known position for precise search-and-rescue (SAR) operations.

EASE OF OPERATION
C-Raid’s user-friendly interface is based on Terma’s deep understanding of the Human Factor and made available on a night goggle compatible touch screen built for hostile and light intensive environments – reducing the load on the crew and minimizing the likelihood of mistakes.

Integrated search support tools for operator to conduct efficient search-and-rescue (SAR) operations

SUPPORTING MULTIPLE DATA COMMUNICATION SYSTEMS
C-Raid supports UHF, VHF, and HF tactical radios, Satcom and Wi-Fi. C-Raid allows multiple networks using different protocols to communicate with each other – greatly expanding operational potential.

INTEGRATES ONBOARD SYSTEMS
C-Raid’s tactical overview is composed of a variety of onboard systems such as navigation and position tracking sensors, Automatic Identification System (AIS), Automatic Radar Plotting Aids
(ARPA), and full motion Electro-Optic (EO)/Infrared (IR) Video.

 

 

  

 


EASE OF IMPLEMENTATION

  • Short delivery lead time (typically less than 3 months for standard systems)
  • Rapid out-of-the-box installation with standard test and commissioning (typically 2 to 3 weeks for standard systems)
  • Less than 1 week of training for crew
  • No ITAR items
