The Falcon has landed for the British army

The British army is to deploy the £200m Falcon battlefield communications network under a contract with BAE Systems.

Due to enter service in 2010, Falcon will be used by senior commanders to control combat operations at corps, divisional and brigade level, and will have up to 50 times the data throughput capacity of the systems it replaces. 

Falcon will be integrated with the army's existing Bowman tactical communications system and the Cormorant command system.
