Cubic | Vocality Welcomes HRH The Princess Royal to Their Surrey Offices


Cubic | Vocality welcomed HRH The Princess Royal to their Shackleford offices on Friday 15th December. The visit was attended by a number of local dignitaries including the High Sherriff of Surrey, the Chairman of Surrey County Council, the Mayor of Guildford and the Surrey Police and Crime Commissioner.


HRH The Princess Royal and guests toured the beautiful barn offices, set deep in the Surrey Hills. During the tour, the Cubic |Vocality team demonstrated a range of secure communication technologies available from Cubic Mission Solutions. These included a range of Vocality unified communications products used by customers such as first responders, allied forces and critical infrastructure organisations. The first demonstration showed live linking of devices, using standard telephones and Push-to-Talk radio devices to create a secure unified communication network over 4G LTE, fixed line and satellite networks.


 A second demonstration introduced Her Royal Highness to the most portable satellite antenna in the world, the GATR Ball. This inflatable satellite antenna dramatically reduces size, weight and power requirements for satellite communications, enabling allied forces to deploy communications faster and more easily than ever before.

The Cubic| Vocality team completed their demonstrations with an overview of how they distribute video from various sources, including military drones, across a secure global network. The technology provides allied forces with the ability to easily view, manage and understand huge amounts of real-time or archived video.


Following the demonstrations, The Princess was invited to meet and talk with employees and other invited guests at a small reception held within the Vocality offices.

Her Royal Highness finished her visit to Cubic | Vocality by unveiling a plaque to commemorate her visit to the barns.

“It was a pleasure and honour to welcome HRH The Princess Royal to our offices. Our team enjoyed the opportunity to show and discuss our latest innovations with Her Royal Highness ”
