Spanish firm Indra unveils Talium tactical mission system

According to a press release published by Indra on November 2, 2021, the company has just unveiled one of the most advanced tactical mission systems on the market, specially designed to support next-generation aircraft that will operate in highly digitized scenarios against technologically advanced adversaries.

The solution allows commanders to plan and conduct complex operations with impressive accuracy, coordinating the involvement of multiple aircraft, each with its different characteristics and capabilities. It’s a next-generation system that drastically reduces mission complexity in the digital domain and it’s ready to operate in a “combat cloud” environment, facilitating effective decision-making in a streamlined manner.

All the data related to the routes, detected threats and identified targets are entered into the digital mapping, defining the entire tactical combat situation. The system is connected to the Air Force’s command and control and information center to automate a large part of this work.

The military staffs then go on to plan the mission, determining the aircraft to be involved, the entry and exit paths, the potential escape routes, etc. The volume of data and the details provided by the Talium system are huge. It includes variables related to the fuel, weight, crew, flight altitude and speed of each aircraft in the calculations, among many other parameters. It can thus estimate, in real-time, whether a mission is feasible and detect any problems that may arise in advance.

It also facilitates the configuration of the communications, establishing the frequencies, channels and data link to be used, centralizing the requirements for all the aircraft and preventing any errors in this highly critical area.

Onboard the aircraft, the pilot views the entire plan to be executed in Indra’s TDM mission system, the ideal complement for the Talium. Indra’s solutions exchange data in real time via the data link. The commanders can thus monitor the development of the operation and enter any updates into the routes, send orders and make changes to the tactical situation.

The result is much more efficient operations executed in a precise, coordinated and secure manner. All of these skills are essential for survival in highly digitized environments, where information determines superiority over the adversary.

The Talium system also facilitates mission briefing and debriefing. The solution’s logistics subsystem downloads data from the platforms to exploit and share them with the sustainment 4.0 systems in order to make the corrective and predictive maintenance tasks easier.

Talium can manage all kinds of operations via a single system common to all the types of platforms, fleet and mission stages, dramatically reducing the complexity and increasing aircraft availability.

This system is an evolution of Indra’s AMPS mission system currently used by the Spanish Armed Forces’ Tiger and NH90 helicopters. With this evolution Indra is positioning itself at the head of the worldwide development of a key command and control technology, leading the efforts of Europe to ensure its technological autonomy and sovereignty in the area.

The Eurocopter Tiger is a four-blade, twin-engine attack helicopter which first entered service in 2003. It is manufactured by Airbus Helicopters (formerly Eurocopter), the successor company to Aérospatiale's and DASA's respective helicopter divisions, which designate it as the EC665. Following their languages, in Germany it is known as the Tiger; in France and Spain it is called the Tigre.
