How We Do It
Klas Telecom maintains a robust software and hardware engineering capability that allows high control over product form-factor and feature set in a way unique to the marketplace. Klas Telecom’s engineers use custom product components, which enables inclusion of additional features in a more compact package than our competitors who rely on using third party, off-the-shelf components. Our engineering team performs rapid prototyping, rigorous testing and other procedures that enable our quality design and quick-to-market capability. Requirements development, product design, full life cycle production support, new equipment training and fielded systems sustainment and support are all capabilities that allow Klas Telecom to meet customers’ needs from start to finish.
Award Winning Design
In 2015, Klas Telecom’s Voyager Executive Communications Kit (VoyagerECK) won over a 38-member jury and received the prestigious Red Dot Award in the category of product design. Red Dot is an internationally recognized quality label for excellent design. With its mobile, all-inclusive, handheld secure communications system for government officials, Klas Telecom, in partnership with Dolmen design firm, proved its engineering and design excellence in the most recognized international competition for product design.
Klas Telecom is delighted to announce that the Voyager 8 tactical communications system has been awarded a 2016 Red Dot product design award. In tandem with Dolmen design firm, Klas focused on using innovative materials to deliver an ultra-compact and lightweight airline carry-on-sized version of a bulky 19″ rack frame. Klas Telecom wanted to deploy to the field what could traditionally only be accomplished in a server room. The integrated power design is among one of Voyager 8’s features that make it unique in the tactical communications market.
