Cistech CS MaCE (v4) Mobile Ad-Hoc Communications Environment (MACE) for Microsoft Windows 11

Product description

Cistech CS MaCE (v4)


Flexible, dynamic interface
MaCE is a comprehensive communication solution for tactical operations in a single system. It makes it easier for users to access local or distributed networks. It simplifies complex command and control functions by integrating voice communication, video transmissions, messaging and situational data.

Various language profiles
Within a MaCE application, users have access to extensive functions such as various voice profiles with up to 20 TalkGroups, the merging of TalkGroups, video recording/playback, instant playback, recording of TalkGroups, control of PTZ cameras and other options.

With its adaptive, interactive user interface, MaCE enables users to visualize, configure and manage their MANET network. It also allows you to customize the workspace according to your own preferences.

TalkGroups and patching
TalkGroups from MaCE offer a flexible communication solution that impresses with its compatibility with various protocols such as multicast, unicast and SIP. A special feature is patching, which allows up to eight TalkGroups to be connected and transmitted simultaneously.

This allows users not only to follow conversations within the network, but also to actively participate in them, which increases interoperability with external organizations.

TalkGroups have an integrated recording function, a group push-to-talk feature and an instant replay function. This enables users to activate several channels simultaneously without time-consuming configuration, save radio communication directly on their end device, verify it and play it back at a later time.

Network visualization
The bidirectional display of the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) within the SA graphic provides deeper insights into the performance and provides information about any capacity bottlenecks in the MANET (Mobile Ad-Hoc Network) implementation. This helps to effectively optimize the range and close possible connection gaps within the network.

3D mapping
With the DTED (Digital Terrain Elevation Data) Elevation Tools, aircraft flight routes or parachutists’ jump paths can be traced in a three-dimensional view. MaCE provides a variety of maps and overlay options that allow areas to be viewed and analyzed in both 2D and 3D.

This increases the visual understanding of ground movements and represents a significant gain in situational awareness.

Video streaming and restreaming
The integrated video player is compatible with H.264, H.264+, H.265, H.265+ and MJPE video formats. It offers the flexibility to convert video streams from multicast to unicast depending on the conditions of use, covering a wide range of application scenarios.

The integrated PTZ function supports ONVIF, Pelco D/P and FLIR cameras and provides video stream and
Camera control within the MACE application.
