PacStar® to Demonstrate Award-Winning Secure Wireless Command Post (SWCP) Solution at AUSA 2019
SWCP fieldings and contracts across DoD reflect solution’s ability to deliver secure tactical mobility to warfighters and speed command post setup time
Portland, OR – October 14, 2019 – PacStar®, a leading developer and supplier of advanced communications solutions for the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD), announced today it will exhibit its award-winning Secure Wireless Command Post (SWCP) solution at AUSA 2019 October 14-16 in Washington, D.C.
PacStar’s Secure Wireless Command Post is a small, modular communications package that provides warfighters with the groundbreaking ability to securely transmit classified and unclassified information in tactical settings while using Wi-Fi and LTE-enabled commercial smartphones and tablets. Secure wireless tactical eliminates the need for miles of cabling and air-conditioned tents. Instead, warfighters can mount the units on tactical vehicles and pick-up and quickly move as the mission requires
SWCP has gained significant traction over the past several months for its ability to address two complex DoD challenges: 1) how to deliver secure mobility to warfighters, and 2) how to speed setup time at command posts in tactical environments. PacStar is in major implementations with SWCP for the U.S. Army and for the U.S Marine Corps in contracts that could be worth up to $300 million, and the solution recently received a 2019 Government Innovation Award, which recognizes government IT disruptors, innovators and emerging leaders.
“Few vendors have matched PacStar’s hardware and software innovation designed to address tactical mobility challenges that warfighters face every single day,” said Peggy Miller, CEO of PacStar. “We are thrilled that SWCP is resonating across the DoD, and look forward to showcasing its capabilities to attendees of all Army ranks and components at AUSA.”
