RT CommandPoint Applications

Situational Awareness

Friendly Symbols (Blue)

RT CommandPoint enables its operator to track friendly units. Breadcrumb trails are provided for all friendly units. The speed and bearing of friendly units are displayed on the map.

Neutral Symbols (Green)

Neutral symbols, such as reference points, can be created and sent to all users in the network. Neutral symbols can also be received from RT Tactical Terminals in the operational theatre.

Hostile Symbols (Red)

All Enemy Attack Alert and Counter Insurgence (COIN) reports from RT Tactical Terminals are displayed as hostile symbols on the map. These reports can also be created using RT CommandPoint.

Zones And Events

A rich set of geofencing zone creation tools are available to the operator. The operator is able to define forbidden and safe zones that generate alarm events upon the entry or exit of a friendly unit respectively. Proximity zones can be attached to symbols as well (creates a radius around the selected symbol that triggers upon an entry event). Pre-defined messages can be attached to zones, which are sent when a zone event occurs.


RT CommandPoint displays the operator’s own speed and bearing on the map in an intuitive manner. Any symbol on the map can be tracked. The distance and bearing to the tracked  symbol is provided.


Each installation includes a comprehensive base map for the user’s desired region (custom regions are available). Satellite images are provided up to a scale of 1:70,000. OpenStreetMap layers continue up to a scale of 1:2000. OpenSeaMap Seamarks and GEBCO bathymetry data are overlaid on top of all layers.

Robust & Secure Tactical Data

The AT Communication AG Stack forms the basis of both the RT Tactical Terminals and RT CommandPoint products. It allows the seamless flow of secure digital voice and data through radios or devices fitted with the AT Comms Modem technology.


RT CommandPoint provides voice call information and voice call control capabilities to the operator. A recent call list and missed call indications are also available to the operator.

Touch Screen Design

The RT CommandPoint user interface has been designed to be used from a touch interface as is commonly found in Tablet PCs. The on-screen keypad and button sizes have been designed to be large enough so as to be easily usable.


Access to the software is restricted by means of an Access Code. All sensitive data can be erased by selecting the Zeroize function.
