Solution suite for tailored command and control systems
ESG’s TARANIS® network-enabled solution suite provides tailored command and control systems for all levels of command, from operational headquarters right down to individual soldiers.
It also makes a significant contribution to improving situational awareness and accelerating decision-making processes.
All TARANIS solutions are configured according to customer specifications by expanding the core system with appropriate modules, and they are also fully compatible with each other.
The TARANIS Theatre is a web-based command and control solution for higher command levels. It is designed for use both in stationary command posts in the homeland as well as in mobile command posts in operation areas, and ensures a seamless connection to command levels in NATO and allied forces.
The TARANIS Battlefield is a tactical command and control system for middle military command levels. With its flexible configuration options, it is ideal for use not only in spacious indoor command posts but also cramped, wheeled and tracked vehicles, as well as by individual dismounted soldiers.
The TARANIS Soldier is a solution for lower tactical command levels in highly mobile operations. It is designed for use by individual dismounted soldiers and works with smartphones and tablets.

ESG’s modular suite of IT solutions for logistic support supports key supply chain processes, ranging from the introduction and technical documentation of equipment; the codification of articles, equipment and material; to asset and maintenance management.
All of the firm’s solutions can be used in conjunction with existing ERP systems (e.g. SAP) and other logistics systems.
N-CORE is the worldwide leading solution for the codification of military material in accordance with the international codification standards of NATO ACodP-1. It is designed for use at National Codification Bureaus in NATO, TIER 2 and TIER 1 countries.
