Conventional communication networks require proprietary radio and encryption technology to provide the exchange of information. Advanced technologies such as cellular broadband (5G) can improve C4ISR capabilities, sustainability, and mobility of modern military operations. GuardStack unifies voice and data communication for soldiers, offering a clear view of the tactical situation and bringing services where demand is the highest: the tactical edge.
With its unique modular architecture, it can adapt to any use case. GuardStack Soldier System creates a bridge between different access technologies, providing seamless interoperability for all services with legacy tactical radio systems and broadband communication systems.
In order to be able to effectively use the various capabilities of the different transmission systems that the dismounted soldier carries with him, a central platform is essential as an integrating component of the personal equipment. The Personal Body Hub (PBH) is a palm-sized device that is worn directly on the body and consolidates all interfaces for power supply, sensors, IT and communication equipment as well as other peripheral devices. This enables optimised cabling and the cross-sectional use of all connected devices across manufacturers.

Being part of a rapid response team, a soldier is called up for an urgent mission and immediately disconnects the Skype call with his family. While he is getting prepared for the mission, he inserts a secret HW element into his smartphone, enabled by GuardStack. The phone automatically switches to ‘Combat Mode’- a secure environment which contains all required applications and information for the mission.
After leaving the base, the tactical operation center is able to share intelligence and video feeds with the soldiers in their vehicles as well as tracking the vehicles using GuardStack’s embedded blue force tracking system.
Guardstack’s tactical core automatically selects another transmission medium with a better range (legacy VHF) to maintain voice communications as the end of the 4G / 5G coverage zone is reached.
A Coast Guard Squadron is using GuardStack to provide an independent off-shore communication infrastructure. The Squadron consists of a patrol vessel acting as tactical node in the network; multiple response boats; and a small unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), all of which require communications at the tactical edge.
The offshore patrol vessel locates a suspicious boat several miles offshore and requires further information in order to make a positive identification. With communications protected against interception and disruption, the boats and the patrol vessel are utilizing GuardStack’s embedded Push-to-Talk and Video technology to communicate and share information with each other. Upon confirmation that the suspect boat is carrying illegal substances, a maritime interdiction is conducted and crew fingerprints are recorded and transmitted via GuardStack enabled long range transmission technology to the Coast Guard headquarters ashore to be crosschecked with criminal records.
