Saab To Exhibit Tacticall At OSEA 2014

Saab will be exhibiting the TactiCall system at the Platinum Edition (20th) of Oil & Gas Industry Exhibition & Conference, OSEA, being held from 2 – 5 December 2014 at Marina Bay Sands, Singapore. OSEA is the biennial tradeshow that has served the offshore Oil & Gas market and it has been supporting industries since 1976.

TactiCall connects different communication technologies regardless of radioband, frequency and hardware, thus eliminating the need for multiple, often bulky, user interfaces cluttering control rooms and reducing efficiency, overview and speed of operation. TactiCall is scalable from one to several operator positions or communication interfaces. A number of countries are established Oil and Gas producers with upstream activities in Indonesia, Malaysia, Brunei, Thailand Vietnam and Philippines picking up. Myanmar and Cambodia, too, have become active while Malaysia and Indonesia are venturing into deep-water and marginal fields. In most instances, these assets are based either offshore or in isolated, remote areas, requiring high connectivity to manage operations, deal with crises and share data. Given the security challenges posed by piracy, smuggling and terrorist activities, being able to connect with the nearest defence presence is also essential for security.

Since different players with vastly different hardware, radiobands and frequency are at play, it becomes critical to have a communication platform that seamlessly interfaces between different kinds of systems and communication channels. This is where the Saab TactiCall makes up the centrepiece in remote controlled setups from single radio to complete operations.

“APAC is our number one priority for TactiCall when it comes to future growth. We have put substantial effort into presenting the capabilities of the TactiCall to meet the Defence, Oil & Gas and Coastal Surveillance needs of countries across the region,” says Stefan Lindström, Director Marketing & Sales, Saab Asia Pacific.

TactiCall integrates third party equipment, legacy or new, protecting prior investments and prolonging the lifespan of older systems. It provides an intuitive and modern user interface for fast, secure and reliable operations within crisis management and daily operations alike.
