The companies will collaborate on the joint development and marketing of vehicle-based C4I systems.

A Rheinmetall spokesperson confirmed that the company has entered into a partnership with Greece’s Intracom Defense for the joint development and marketing of a vehicle-based C4I system, with the pair hoping to meet both domestic and international demand.

Throughout the engagement, it is expected that Rheinmetall Electronics will concentrate on the development of command and control systems for communications – between both vehicles and across the chain of command – while Intracom Defence will assemble intercom systems, allowing crew members to maintain communications with one another.

The partnership will further focus on integrating Rheinmetall’s TacNet tactical management system and the company's pedigree in C4ISTAR and soldier systems with Intracom Defense’s WiSPRevo communication and information system.

As part of the agreement between the two companies, Rheinmetall and Intracom Defense have agreed to pool their capabilities in the market to build more robust and user-friendly C4I capabilities for military vehicles.

The announcement came as Rheinmetall and Thales agreed to continue overseeing the simulators for the French and German Tiger attack helicopters, following a 2021 contract issued through OCCAR (the Organisation Conjointe de Coopération en Matière d'Armement). The new contract has the pair scheduled to oversee the simulators from 1 January 2022 to 31 December 2025.

As part of the contract, the companies will manage 20 Tiger simulators in Le Luc, Fritzlar, Pau and Phalsbourg. Of the simulators, eight are full-mission simulators and 12 are cockpit procedure trainers to help crews train using the latest aircraft. The latest aircraft in service are the Tiger Hélicoptère d’Appui et Destruction (HAD) Block 2 in France, and the Unterstützungs hubschrauber Tiger Step 2 Krypto in Germany.

The companies are also expected to deliver service and maintenance advice as part of the contract.

According to a statement from Rheinmetall, both companies and OCCAR will continue to leverage years of co-operation in simulation and training, where OCCAR contracted the Tiger Aircrew Training Means (ARGE TATM) to modernise the simulators. The project was completed in 2019.

ARGE TATM is a joint venture between Rheinmetall Electronics GmbH and Thales AVS France SAS.
