REDCOM Laboratories, Inc., the leading supplier of tactical edge communications systems, is pleased to announce it will be exhibiting at the Modern Day Marine expo in Quantico, VA, 19-21 September. The company will be in the green tent in booth #564.
At Modern Day Marine, REDCOM will be conducting live interoperability demos that show how the company’s technology can reliably connect virtually any voice communications system in the world, from strategic command and control out to the tactical edge. One REDCOM system can provide connectivity between AS-SIP phones, landlines, smartphones, satellite phones, radios, and even magneto crank-phones.
REDCOM will also be exhibiting the latest versions of its military-grade software, Sigma Core and Sigma Client. Sigma Core is the company’s powerful and flexible software-based call control platform that delivers a comprehensive set of UC functions, including VoIP, point-to-point video, XMPP with presence, conferencing, and unified messaging. Sigma Client is a secure VoIP app for Windows® and Android™ with full preemption controls and Push-to-Talk for instantaneous voice communication via IP.
Low SWaP call control for the tactical edge
PacStar will be joining REDCOM in booth #564 to showcase their 400-Series rugged communications modules. REDCOM is proud to announce that Sigma® Core 2.0.1 can now be integrated on PacStar 451 and 455-series of rugged communications modules, delivering dramatically improved capabilities for tactical, expeditionary and mobile organizations. Integrated with PacStar 400-Series, REDCOM Sigma Core can function as a stand-alone Local Session Controller (LSC) or as an adjunct to an existing Enterprise Session Controller (ESC) to deliver advanced voice services such as transcoding and conferencing for red and black networks.
“REDCOM and PacStar have reimagined what it means to be low SWaP at the tactical edge,” said REDCOM President Dinah Gueldenpfennig Weisberg. “We are pleased to offer Sigma Core to DoD organizations that use PacStar’s 400-Series platform, and to organizations considering stepping up to PacStar’s leading small form factor comms package.”
“PacStar 400-Series customers can benefit tremendously with the integration of REDCOM’s Sigma Core software into our platform” said Peggy Miller, chief executive officer for PacStar. “With the addition of the comprehensive suite of secure, interoperable, unified communications capabilities in Sigma Core, our customers have a one-stop shop to meet their military-ready networking and communications needs.”
Defense against the denied environment
REDCOM Director of Strategy, Col Mike Sweeney, USMC (Ret) will be leading discussions on Operational Continuity in a Communications Denied Environment in the REDCOM tent. We will explore real-world interoperability challenges and cyber threats, with insights on how to command, control, and communicate when IP communications have been compromised.
“Today’s warriors must understand the challenges of the cyber domain, learn how to leverage it to their advantage, and most importantly be well-versed and practiced in sustaining critical command and control functions in the cyber denied environment,” said Mike Sweeney. “REDCOM’s products are designed to provide the warfighter with unmatched security, connectivity, and interoperability in the IP environment while providing the mechanisms to communicate securely when that environment has been rendered inoperable.”
One key element of REDCOM’s defense against the denied environment is CrucialConnect, a family of customizable and deployable packages designed to restore critical communications in minutes. At Modern Day Marine, REDCOM will be conducting live demos of a CrucialConnect system with HF-based fallback that was developed in partnership with NViS Communications.
“CrucialConnect HF is a fully integrated kit that does not require any manual intervention to complete voice or data connections,” said John Rosica, NViS Communications President. “The system enables reestablishment of voice, data and email transmittal back to the PSTN from an area with zero communications infrastructure. We see many government and emergency management agencies excited about this unique solution we’ve built in partnership with REDCOM to overcome the denied environment.”
Visitors are encouraged to visit the REDCOM tent at booth #564 to see examples of our CrucialConnect family of solutions in action.
