Next-generation military technology is represented by command, control, communications, computers and intelligence (C4I) systems, which provide the technical support for the conduct of military operations. In this regard, ROMARM National Company has undertaken several actions since August this year to identify opportunities for cooperation within Elbit Systems. Therefore, the ROMARM delegation visited the C4I and Cyber System division, which deals with the implementation and production of C4I and Cyber Intelligence systems.
As a result of the meetings and the demonstration event in October - where Elbit Systems' delegation and the C4I and Cyber System division presented the practical applications of the C4I system - Torch-XTM - ROMARM and Elbit Systems agreed on a partnership for the implementation and production of C4I and Cyber Intelligence technologies.
The newest generation of military technology in the field is command, control, communications, computers and intelligence (C4I) systems, which provide the technical support for the conduct of military operations. In this regard, ROMARM National Company will cooperate closely to Elbit Systems, a leading company in C4I and Cyber Intelligence. Elbit Systems is one of the world's largest manufacturers of military and civilian equipment, with several production and development facilities in Romania.
MApN will purchase a C4I system for the Joint Forces Command
During 2022 - 2024, the Ministry of National Defence is planning to procure C4I systems with ISTAR - Integrated Communications and Information System (ICIS) integration capabilities of the C4ISR system for the Joint Forces Command (JFC).
The acquisition plan provides for the creation of a CIS for the Joint Forces Command, which will ensure the integration of the operational level command in the military leadership of the Romanian Army's force structure, both in peacetime and in the event of armed aggression, when a state of siege is established, a state of mobilization or a state of war is declared.
Advantages of Torch-X system
The Torch-X command and control system developed by Elbit was tested by representatives of the Elbit delegation. The effectiveness of the TORCH-X command and control platform has been successfully demonstrated and guarantees improved performance and interoperability in multiple environments in a NATO operational scenario.
Torch-XTM HQ optimizes operational activities by providing common situational awareness, messaging, command dissemination and decision support tools for headquarters at all levels. Artificial intelligence-based decision support features reduce cognitive load and increase operational tempo. In addition, Torch-X HQ supports live video feeds from multiple sources with augmented reality capabilities, bringing a true view of the battle enhanced with real-time data to increase efficiency and safety.
The Torch-XTM system supports intelligence, military operations, offensive support, combat support service (CSS) and other combat support (CS) elements. Torch-X HQ integrates seamlessly with command headquarters for stationary and mobile shelters, mobile platforms and mobile dismounted forces.
ROMARM and Elbit, a partnership with vision
In line with ROMARM's existing strategy of identifying new development opportunities in third markets and the desire to assimilate into production state-of-the-art products with high added value, the collaboration with Elbit Systems, one of the largest manufacturers of military and civil equipment in the world, is welcome. In this way, we thank Ministry of Economy and MapN for their involvement and interest in renewing and reinvigorating the national defense industry, as well as Elbit Systems for making possible the cooperation and joint development of a state-of-the-art command and control system.
