Within a single, small, lightweight, rugged package, the user is provided simultaneous narrowband and wideband communications capabilities necessary to support tactical command and control communications in a variety of challenging radio operating environments.

The Thales TH5310/TH5315 solution, is a significantly enhanced version of the widely fielded PRC 6809 radio. The TH5310/TH5315 offers all of the existing functionally of the current radio with the addition of the TrellisWare® TSM wideband networking waveform capability.


The PRC6809 MBITR is part of the AN/PRC-148 family of radios, the most capable dismounted radio system available today.

Based on the combat-proven AN/PRC-148 MBITR, the PRC6809 MBITR provides unprecedented interoperability with existing military and commercial legacy radio systems. With software upgradeability, future operation with the next generation of communications equipment is ensured.

The BreadCrumb JR2 is a wireless device that forms a mesh network when used in conjunction with other BreadCrumb systems.

This single-transceiver, single-antenna system is frequently used in private wireless networks for on-body and on-vehicle mobile communications and remote connectivity.


Secure, fast, resilient, IP connectivity that’s deployed in seconds.

Mediaport-R provides secure, fast, reliable IP connectivity between tactical teams and control rooms, in mobile scenarios and harsh environments.

Mediaport-R bonds up to four 3G/4G mobile broadband connections (along with cabled broadband or satellite where available).

By employing RAID-type distributed forward error correction, diverse routing and 256 bit SSL/AES encryption, Mediaport-R creates a highly secure and resilient private network using just consumer access media.



GRC are proud to provide GPS tracker support to British Armed Forces personnel, who are running 268 miles along The Pennine Way! They are completing the event in an effort to raise money and awareness of The Hoplite Fund, a charity which supports serving members, the dependants of serving members, and ex-members of the United Kingdom Special Forces Signal Regiment, a Hereford based charity.



We would like to thank all our guests who managed to make it out of the DSEI 2017 halls and on to the Sunborn to visit us - we had a great week and the event was a huge success!

We had live demonstrations of the GRC Sandfly, Cobham Explorer 5075GX and Swarm45 satellite terminals, running over Avanti and Inmarsat GX in addition to Inmarsat BGAN and Thuraya IP+ in operation.



Scytale Maritime is a rapidly deployable, carry-on solution, providing a secure data and voice hub, that can be deployed to any vessel where reliable communication is vital.

In response to the growing trend for Naval Forces to utilise civil vessels, the Scytale Maritime offers a stand-alone, carry-on solution, which can be rapidly deployed without the need for permanent installation.




The Swarm45 is an extremely compact, rugged, lightweight and unobtrusive system providing high-throughput data rates, making it ideally suited to the government, defence, commercial and disaster recovery sectors.

It is operational on Global Xpress, Avanti and other high-throughput Ka-Band satellites and can also be configured to operate at Ku and X-Band frequencies.


Since its launch the Internet has seen explosive growth, becoming the world’s most powerful network and connecting millions of people globally.

The utilisation of the Internet by military, government and other security conscious organisations for the passage of sensitive data has not previously been possible due to the lack of easily transportable IP encryption mechanisms that are approved to encryption accredited standards.



The Scytale Mini is a small form factor device which is easily configurable, transportable and able to provide a high level of anonymity to deployed users passing secure data back to office locations. The device will also provide an IP capability over trusted 3rd party networks with the option for VoIP services.

The Scytale Mini uses two trusted 3rd party vendors to reroute traffic prior to hitting the final destination firewall and the use of Next Generation Encryption (NGE) algorithms and techniques to thwart the efforts of cyber criminals.
