REDCOM Laboratories, Inc., the leading supplier of advanced communications solutions for the tactical edge, has received an order to supply the U.S. Army’s PEO C3T with Sigma Video Conferencing software for Battlefield Video Tele-Conferencing (BVTC) III modernization. To complete this contract REDCOM partnered with Envistacom to deliver Sigma software using the CHESS contract vehicle. The order is initially valued at $1.6M and is expected to expand to over $2M early in fiscal year 2022.
“REDCOM has a proven history of working with the U.S. Army’s PEO C3T on communications modernization projects for numerous programs. The Army selected REDCOM Sigma for the BVTC III program because of our ability to greatly reduce the amount of equipment, bandwidth, and cost associated with a traditional VTC capability,” said Michael Scaravillo, Government Sales Manager, REDCOM. “Standard video conference software was designed for the civilian boardroom and not the tactical edge. We built Sigma specifically to meet the CONOPS of military users.”
REDCOM Sigma supports the U.S. Army’s modernization efforts to be more mobile, expeditionary, scalable, and easier to use. Using Sigma to power video conferencing, BVTC III will provide timely and accurate situational awareness to C2 personnel. Sigma’s video conferencing technology is optimized for congested and contested environments and will improve information sharing and decision-making at the tactical edge.
