The army will use the iDirect Evolution defence portfolio to ensure high-quality support for multinational missions.

They will also have access to the wideband global SATCOM (WGS) programme, which uses the defence and commercial satellites of partnering nations.

"With the introduction of the new iDirect series of remotes, we will continue to ensure resiliency at lower operational cost."

The iDirect platform has advanced quality of service (QoS) capabilities, which will allow the army to balance traffic between operational and welfare requirements, and mobile and static deployments.

iDirect also has TRANSEC capabilities, designed to bolster the army's network security.

The new products are expected to provide the army with a highly efficient and resilient portfolio of remotes, designed to lower operating costs.

iDirect regional vice-president Steve Tunnicliffe said: "iDirect's Evolution portfolio will enable the Danish Armed Forces to meet their objective to maintain the principle of affordability, eesilience and capability (ARC).

"Looking forward, with the introduction of the new iDirect series of remotes, we will continue to ensure resiliency at lower operational cost to provide a truly global, flexible and highly capable system deployable anywhere, anytime."

iDirect's product portfolio also includes a network management system, as well as hub and line cards to establish and scale satellite networks.
