Delivering True Unified Command and Control (C2) to the Tactical Edge

Register for the Webinar

The ability to communicate is a foundational component of Command and Control, from the strategic to the tactical level. Though the primary means of communication may differ by echelon, the biggest challenge remains the same: interoperability.

Critical information needs to travel from the highest levels of government to the Combatant Commands, the Brigade to the Team, and everywhere in between. To do so, a communications solution must be flexible, scalable, and able to converge disparate devices/communication platforms together in real time, especially in austere or DDIL environments.

In this webinar, we’ll discuss the solution to these interoperability challenges: REDCOM Sigma, a standards-based C2 software platform that eases the burden of integrating with legacy, existing, and future infrastructure. Sigma provides a full suite of features, including VoIP, video, chat, RoIP, conferencing, transcoding, and PTT console capabilities in a single, lightweight software solution. Bridging the gap between upper and lower echelons, Sigma supports multiple deployment options, and we’ll discuss selecting the correct hardware for land, sea, and air missions with examples from Curtiss-Wright’s modular and rugged tactical communications systems.

There are no guarantees in a combat environment where the enemy gets a say, but this level of interoperability and adaptability will give warfighters the best chance of maintaining critical C2 communications across joint and coalition forces in a contested environment.
