PacStar Awarded U.S. Army Tactical Communications Contract to Support Expeditionary Warfare
PacStar®, a leading developer and supplier of advanced communications solutions for the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD), today announced that it has been awarded a tactical network communications contract by the U.S. Army Program Executive Office Command, Control, Communications-Tactical (PEO C3T).
Under the contract, PacStar will deliver its PacStar 400-Series platform for SCOUT (Scalable Class of Unified Terminals) in support of the U.S. Army Integrated Tactical Network (ITN) program. The ITN is a concept that incorporates the Army's current tactical network environment with commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) components and transport capabilities to enable communications in disconnected, intermittent and limited (DIL) bandwidth environments.
"As the U.S. Army and other DoD organizations continue to pursue expeditionary style warfare and engage more agile, smaller units, they must support on-the-move warfighters who often enter remote and mobile environments with limited communications equipment and uncertain infrastructure," said Peggy J. Miller, CEO of PacStar. "PacStar offers a proven, and reliable tactical communications platform that demostrated superior Size, Weight and Power (SWaP) capabilities during ITN tests, accelerating DoD modernization efforts."
SCOUT provides small teams with expeditionary satellite capabilities for low bandwidth communications and exchange of secure and non-secure data, voice, and video. PacStar 400-Series solutions will be delivered to four Infantry Brigade Combat Teams (IBCTs) as part of the ITN Capability Set 21 rollout, delivering key capabilities optimized for small, agile units. This will enable:
PacStar also provides the baseband solution for the Army's Transportable Tactical Command Communications (T2C2) program based on PacStar 400-Series. The T2C2 Program of Record is providing SCOUT in support of the Army's Security Force Assistance Brigades (SFAB). As a result of this contract, a SCOUT variant will be included in the Integrated Tactical Network (ITN), providing commonality across platforms and reducing the unique hardware components in the Army network.
