Modular Tactical System (MTS), a lightweight, wearable and rugged computer system that is integrated into the user’s uniform and equipment, and optimized for dismounted C4ISR.
     
In the past few months, the Tamnun system passed examination processes and technical approvals, in the framework of operational activity in a small number of units. The wearable computerized system was developed by CTI in cooperation with the US company (Black Diamond Advanced Technology (BDAT). CTI is located in New York and is owned by the Israeli businessman Eyal Sachi. Development was carried out for the Israeli Ministry of Defense’s Mafat division and for the IDF Ground Forces.

The system, which is manufactured in the US, includes an encrypted mission computer which runs the C2 application, as well as a 6.5 inch computer screen. The system is intended for the use at the brigade commander level and above and for use by special forces, and it will be integrated into the Digital Army Program (DAP) systems developed by Elbit System. The system is particularly suited for rough environmental conditions (sand, dust, moisture, humidity, wind and etc.) and for operation in tactical warfare environments. It is connected to uniforms via two clips and can be easily removed.

The new system also includes a GPS receiver and ports for connecting a variety of external accessories and sensors such as observation systems, viewfinder displays and more. It is energy efficient, so that the computer will be able to operate for a great length of time even without an external battery. The computer can be detached from the external battery, and transferred to another C2 system without the need for reactivation.
