    The selection of the Klas Government’s Voyager TRIK for the Army ITN Program, will enable Army communicators to use common communication components across all deployments, creating a single battlefield network.

    AUGUST 27, 2020 (HERNDON, VA) As part of the ITN architecture within Capability Set ’21 (CS21), four Army Brigade Combat teams have been selected for the initial fielding of Klas Government’s Voyager TRIK, a low SWaP and rugged communications solution that provides the core voice and data gateway functionality at company, battalion and brigade levels. The Tactical Radio Mesh Network and use of other readily available technologies that Klas Government has been able to integrate, such as TAK and Haivision’s Kraken, decrease connection time enabling an unprecedented level of situational awareness and a true Common Operating Picture (COP). This gives users the benefit of being able to communicate more efficiently, carry less equipment, make better and faster decisions, and have flexibility for changing mission environments.

    “The ITN greatly increases warfighter effectiveness on the battlefield and the Voyager TRIK is at the heart of it. What took a JTAC upwards of 30 minutes to accomplish with unplanned overhead assets, can now be done in 30 – 45 seconds. 30 minutes is too long to wait for air support that’s needed immediately.”
    – Mike Munn, Director of Army Programs at Klas Government

    The Capability Set construct is designed to be renewed every two years to ensure the Army is fielding the latest technology from industry. After this initial fielding in October 2020, technology from CS21 will be evaluated based on Soldier feedback upon the completion of key events which is the foundation of the Developmental Operations (DEVOPS) approach. The DEVOPS approach is pivotal in ensuring our Soldiers iteratively receive the best capabilities available and do not get pigeonholed into solutions that may become obsolete or less effective over the life of a typical programmatic approach. Klas Telecom has a history of designing and providing innovative products through the DEVOPS approach within Special Operations and is excited to see it become a part of the Army’s approach for today’s Soldiers.

    “This is an exciting time for Klas as the selection of the Voyager TRIK validates the modularity and scalability of the Voyager product line. Our recent awards from U.S. Army’s CS21 ITN, PEO Aviation, ESB-E and SIVT programs, and contracts from our Coalition partners in Australia and the United Kingdom, validate that we are using common components to enable command and control via communications across multiple domains. These contract awards are just the start for Klas as the Capability Set modernization format fits our Evolutionary Product Development model perfectly. We will continually enhance our existing products and develop new products by communicating directly with our customers and partners to ensure we provide the best communication systems available on the market.”
    – David Huisenga, President and CEO at Klas Government

    Enhancements to the Voyager Tactical Radio Integration Kit (TRIK) will enable seamless collaboration between the U.S. Military and coalition partners like never before.

    OCTOBER 13, 2020 (HERNDON, VA) Intelligence on the battlefield is crucial to our Troops and quick reaction to ever-changing environments enables them to be in the right location with the right firepower to effectively engage the enemy. Communication and sharing of this intelligence using radios has traditionally been disjointed. As a response, Klas created the Voyager TRIK in 2016 to enable seamless sharing of information and communications over a variety of radio networks. Klas has integrated radios into the Voyager 8 chassis through the use of innovative, custom-designed radio brackets that fit securely in an IP67 rated enclosure that’s backed by AC, DC and battery power.

    The use of radio brackets allows easy integration of traditional radio network data into tactical networks used by military communicators. Since the initial release of the Voyager TRIK, Klas Government has made enhancements to the classic Voyager 8 and has released a new battery-backed chassis and case, the Voyager 8 Plus, in order to support the increasing demand of integrating commonly used manpack and handheld tactical radios with higher power requirements. Klas has also integrated CISTECH Solutions’ software on the VoyagerEMm to complete a small form factor and rugged Radio over IP capability that’s compatible with the system. Some examples of commonly used tactical radios that can be integrated into the Voyager TRIK include:

    Silvus StreamCaster 4200
    Viasat BATS-D AN/PRC-161
    Persistent Systems MPU5
    L3Harris Falcon III AN/PRC-152A
    TrellisWare TW-950
    Thales AN/PRC-148 JEM

    MajGen (Ret.) Mark Clark, USMC said, “Communications on the battlefield are critical to mission success across the spectrum from near peer competition, to gray zone conflict and humanitarian operations. The Voyager TRIK gives commanders better and more reliable communications. It gives units the size, weight power, simplicity, scalability and expeditionary requirements they seek and need, not only in a joint environment but in coalition and other governmental agencies as well. No mission or condition is too difficult for the Voyager TRIK.”

    Tactical radios that are compatible with the Voyager TRIK fall into several categories:

    UHF/VHF radios from L3Harris and Thales
    Public Safety radios from Motorola
    MANET radios from Persistent Systems, Trellisware & Silvus
    ISR devices that include video feeds and Tactical Data Link from L3Harris, Viasat and Collins Aerospace

    By incorporating each type of tactical radio into the Voyager TRIK, users can ingest data from disparate networks, analyze the data using Voyager network modules, and disseminate that data over Beyond Line-of-Sight and Line-of-Sight networks. This model has been recently adopted by PEO C3T in order to accomplish the ITN construct within Capability Set 21 and is being evaluated by all branches of the U.S. Military along with public safety organizations.

  • HERNDON, Va.Nov. 20, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Founded in 1991, Klas Telecom first connected students in remote areas using, ISDN and satellite technology. The company has evolved to work across many different sectors from Government and Public Safety, to transportation and autonomous vehicles.

    For over three decades, Klas has been making cutting edge technology. In more recent times, Klas Government with their Voyager hardware, modules and software, has taken this to the extreme - the extreme edge of the network.

    Klas Government's Voyager product line takes the world's most powerful and reliable technology to the extreme, tactical edge of the network. "We go to extremes to make sure it works where nothing else will," says Chris Ericksen the company's CRO. "With value, simplicity and integrity built in, it gives our partners the power to do much more, much faster," he adds.

    "As a company, Klas Government has evolved, our tech has become much more advanced and its capability has exponentially increased. Telecom no longer defines us as we continue to expand our offerings.  We wanted to update our branding to reflect that, so we're now Klas Government," said Ericksen, "We looked at an incremental tweak of our branding, but it just wasn't reflective of the leaps we've made with our work."

    Klas Government has built their business on being far and away the best tech to use in harsh environments. They believe there are no bad conditions, you just need better equipment. They also believe nobody comes close to what they can do in this space. They say they provide complete solutions that work better than anything else, quicker than anyone else, and at a better value. Bold claims that are now dressed in a bold new brand identity.

    Given their latest releases on the tech front, and their recent new business wins, it seems like a good time for them to reframe their offering and bolster it with a new look. At a glance, the new identity seems simpler, stronger and more dynamic, much like their kit.
