The Chelton communication systems use a Ring Topology for inter-connecting units within the platform and this was selected to provide resilience to battle damage, to allow product improvements to be inserted without effecting the installed base and allow any number of users to be placed above or below the slip ring in platforms that have a rotating turret and still maintain independent control of their communication assets.

In addition to the Ring Topology all the crucial functions such as voice encoding, conferencing, control, data transmission is distributed and independently controlled by each unit in the system which greatly enhances the survivability of the system under battle damage conditions.

With the advent of more complex vehicles requiring higher numbers of radios but the vehicle being smaller the Ring Topology allows the radios to be mounted either in the hull or the turret or both without the need for an RF slip ring. The Radio Interface Terminals (RIT) will then transmit and receive the digitised signals either side of the slip ring using the dual redundant digital bus that is inherent within the design.

Under battle conditions the following advantages are apparent with a Ring Topology compared to a Star
