Military operation

Vital Alert specialises in covert wireless and through-the-earth (TTE) communication solutions for military operations.

The company’s technology penetrates earth, and other man-made and natural barriers both above and below-ground, while remaining undetectable at short ranges.

Telecommunication systems for covert military operations

Vital Alert’s TTE technology is highly effective for undercover communications, as TTE signals are difficult to detect using conventional radio frequency (RF) hardware.

The company’s products feature terminal-to-terminal encryption and enable real-time, two-way voice and data transmission, so military personnel are able to communicate quickly and clearly for mission success.

CanaryComm features Vital Alert’s TTE technology in an easily portable unit that is quickly deployed in tactical situations and integrates with existing radios and data devices.
CanaryRemote is a one-way data link remote control unit, which allows operators to control, reset or reconfigure equipment from a distance.
CanaryCommPac is a body-worn, short-range TTE radio system and the ideal choice for when military personnel need to move easily while covertly using voice and data transmissions.
CanaryTalk is a highly portable, operational and critical use communications solution, which is ideal for military operations where personnel need to move easily while using voice and data transmissions.
TTE signals are difficult to detect using conventional RF hardware, and Vital Alert’s TTE magnetic signal make it detectable only within 3ft-5ft of the TTE transmitters.
By integrating Vital Alert TTE radios, teams can establish direct communication both above and below ground, removing the need for line of sight.
TTE terminals can be integrated with many types of sensors to gather data or alarms from areas below ground or be shielded from conventional wireless networks.

Vital Alert’s technology can be utilised by military personnel in:

  • Caves
  • Tunnels
  • Collapsed buildings
  • Bunkers
  • Shelters
  • Covert operations
  • Enemy detection

Direct integrated radios for tactical applications

In tactical settings, Vital Alert radios can be integrated with existing communications systems for seamless interoperability with Wi-Fi networks, standard radio handsets, tracking systems, sensors, or can function independently.

Adding a Vital Alert TTE Link in tunnels or other shielded environments assists personnel that are typically equipped with radios, which require line-of-sight between adjacent handsets.

By integrating the company’s TTE radios, teams can establish direct communication both above and below ground, eliminating the need for line-of-sight contact.

Remote sensor devices

Sensors for areas such as intrusion detection and chemicals can be buried at appropriate locations, so they silently gather data.

By attaching them to a Vital Alert TTE device, the sensors covertly send new information from areas normally hidden from satellites or other flyovers.

TTE communication technology

Vital Alert’s TTE technology enables secure, emergency and day-to-day text, voice and data transmissions in challenging communication environments such as tunnels, sewers, subways, buildings, mines and military operations.
