Communication and surveillance equipment

The British Army has the most powerful information and communication systems available. Commanders must be able to talk to their units - at all times - whether it is by voice or data, satellite link or landline.


The BOWMAN family of digital radios enables the transmission of large quantities of data and provides information on the position of UK forces.

Features the Cormorant theatre-deployable communications network and the Falcon joint tactical communications system for the land environment.

Surveillance equipment


The Surveillance System and Range Finder (SSARF) allows a soldier to quickly establish the exact location and distance of enemy forces and determine the most appropriate and accurate mortar or artillery firepower to use.

The all-weather, day and night system is hand-held, lightweight, with built-in GPS, thermal imaging, and laser range finder of up to 5km. It can also be tripod mounted.
