The PacStar 400-Series is ideal for in-theater operations, vehicle-mount, early-entry or forward operating base deployments for military, Homeland Security, first responders, and commercial enterprise users.

The physical package of the PacStar 455 utilizes the PacStar 400-Series standard module form factor and patented interconnect and can be easily integrated into a wide array of system packaging options for the PacStar 400-Series, including brief-case style, transit case-style, and backpack-style transport options.
