PacStar(r) Awarded USD 12.2M Contract to Deliver Tactical Communications Solution to US Forces in Afghanistan

  • PacStar Ruggedized Mobile Units Provide Warfighters With Secure, Converged Unified Communications Capabilities in Battlefield Environments
PORTLAND, OR - PacStar(r), a leading developer of advanced communications solutions for the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD), today announced it has been awarded a contract totaling $12.2 million for the delivery of several hundred of the firm's mobile tactical communications units to US Forces-Afghanistan (USFOR-A).

PacStar will deliver 225 units of its 2010 SIPR / NIPR Baseband Node (SNBN), which provides secure, converged, unified communications, over wired 3G/4G, WiMax and satellite networks. The firm will also deliver 450 units of its PacStar 2011 SIPR / NIPR / Coalition Enclaves (SNCE), which, when combined with the PacStar 2010, provides USFOR-A with simultaneous, expanded access to three major command and control communications networks (NIPR / SIPR / CENTRIXS) that will connect to established Harris RF-7800W Broadband Ethernet Radio antennas.

"Providing secure, easy-to-use, and reliable communication in austere environments on the battlefield is of the utmost importance for today's networked warfighter," said Bob Dunn, chief executive officer, PacStar. "We are thrilled to have the opportunity to deliver a solution that will improve USFOR-A's capability to communicate with each other and the coalition forces."

Both the PacStar 2010 and PacStar 2011 are managed by PacStar IQ-Core(r) Software, a comprehensive software management platform that simplifies system setup, unifies network management, protects against mis-configuration and makes the systems easier to use for lightly-trained or busy communication operators in the field. As a result, warfighters will benefit from mobile tactical communications units that are quick and easy to set up, while providing maximum flexibility in network access and command and control.
