On the front lines of any crisis or combat situation or natural disaster, connecting separate networks for communications among first responders, makes all the difference when saving time and lives.
That’s why Lockheed Martin created the Universal Communications Platform (UCP) Gateway – an internet protocol (IP) based gateway product designed to provide interoperability between radio systems (tactical and LMR both secured and non-secure) and other communication devices including cellular telephones, landline telephones, commercial VoIP phones, and Smart Phones.
The UCP Gateway converts the audio and data from any of these devices to common IP format and then multicast on a standard IP network. It fully supports tiered control network services readily supporting Unit, Base, Regional and Enterprise level operations as needed at the touch of a button. Numerous systems have been designed and deployed including fixed sites, command centers, vehicle mounted, trailer mounted, aircraft mounted, and personnel carried packages.
- The UCP integrates any radio communications systems using existing communications infrastructure to form a cost-effective, dedicated network for complete communications including voice, video and data.
- The UCP provides a shared Common Operating Picture (COP) enabling first responders to assess situations and respond in unison.
- The UCP Tactical Deployable Unit (TDU) version can be assembled within 15 minutes to create a cohesive network and dispatch capability consisting of radios, mobile devices, and cellular P25 communications--a command center on the fly.
- The Tactical Deployable Unit (TDU) can be powered by a wide variety of power sources including batteries and solar panels for instances when electricity is scarce.
- The TDU requires minimal training to fully use its capability.
- The UCP Communicator provides the only true P25 radio capability which allows end-to-end communications with P25 radios as well as providing encryption.

UCP Communicator for iPhone
UCP Communicator is an application used as part of the Lockheed Martin Universal Communications Platform (UCP) family of products. The UCP Communicator application—when downloaded to a mobile device such as an Android, iPhone or Windows platform and registered to a UCP Communicator server—allows the user to experience push-to-talk radio communications on their device. This mean that UCP Communicator users can also communicate seamlessly with two-way radio users when the PTT server is connected to compatible two-way radio infrastructure. Designed to the APCO P25 format capability allows either mobile platform-only communications or mobile to radio communications allowing the users to have a wide variety of communications choices. Because it is designed to APCO P25 standards, it is the only PTT system that is end-to-end encryptable.
With the UCP Communicator, organizations can reduce the costs of radio hardware for surge operations. External organizations can be added to the system in their own talk group which allows coordination with these groups while keeping essential communications clutter-free.
CONTROL THE CHAOS. CONTROL THE OUTCOME.
In today’s world, complexity can be your greatest enemy or your greatest asset. That’s why Lockheed Martin is developing solutions that provide a clear picture of what’s happening around the world — and the infrastructure to act on it in real-time.
