PacStar to deliver SWCP system-based networking modules for USMC

PacStar has been selected to supply networking modules for a US Marine Corps Systems Command (MCSC) programme to enable troops to use wireless for mission critical operations.

PacStar has been selected to supply networking modules for a US Marine Corps Systems Command (MCSC) programme to enable troops to use wireless for mission critical operations.

The MCSC has selected components from the company’s Secure Wireless Command Post (SWCP) system.

These components will support network infrastructure, encryption and cybersecurity needs for the Marine Common Handheld (MCH) programme.

Deployment of the PacStar solution will empower the service to provide secure access to classified networks for smart mobile devices at the tactical edge.

The MCH programme will be implemented in compliance with Commercial Solutions for Classified (CSfC) requirements to provide secure wireless access.

PacStar CEO Peggy Miller said: “PacStar SWCP small form factor enables USMC to leverage the power of smart mobile devices at the very edge of the network, for mission critical warfighting operations.

“This new programme selection helps us deliver on PacStar’s mission to deliver secure wireless everywhere.”

The PacStar solution will support the Marine Air Ground Taskforce (MAGTF) for secure mobile computing at the battle space tactical edge with CSfC systems.

Under the programme, MCSC seeks to acquire a modular, man-portable equipment suite that will enable troops to quickly acquire targets in day, night, and near all-weather visibility conditions. This is in addition to control close air support (CAS) and Naval surface fire support missions.

“This new programme selection helps us deliver on PacStar’s mission to deliver secure wireless everywhere.”

The system is also required to act as a digital information processing and display unit capable of providing command and control/situational awareness (C2/SA) to tactical combat, combat support and combat service support commanders.

PacStar will deliver small-form factor, rugged networking modules based on its SWCP system.

SWCP is designed to provide CSfC capabilities in tactical and expeditionary operations and features PacStar IQ-Core Crypto Manager.
