Klas Telecom's newest expeditionary variant of its Voyager command, control, communications, computer, cyber, intelligence, reconnaissance, and surveillance (C5ISR) networking chassis will allow – for the first time – plug and play capability for tactical ground vehicles without modification to the vehicle itself.
The Voyager 6 chassis, as designed, meets current Standardized A-Kit/Vehicle Envelope (SAVE) criteria for size, weight, and power (SWaP) requirements and can be bolted into the SINCGARS MT-6352 mounting tray already in use by a large proportion of US armed forces combat vehicles.
“With Voyager 6, troops now have access to a tactical comms package that meets SAVE specifications SWaP [while] unlocking unlimited compute in a limited vehicle footprint,” Chris Ericksen, chief revenue officer for Klas Telecom's government-focused directorate, said in a statement. End users can also “repurpose existing Voyager modules and chassis with the ability to easily incorporate new capabilities as the mission dictates” via the new Voyager 6 chassis, the statement added.

The Voyager 6's plug and play capability into combat ground vehicles plays into the US Department of Defense (DoD) strategy to integrate Common Modular Open Suite of Standards (CMOSS) for new systems and platforms enabling electronic warfare (EW) and command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (C4ISR) operations at the operational and tactical level.
