Communications Capability Will Allow Special Operators to Access Secure Wireless Network
ASHBURN, Va. – June 30, 2009 – Telos® Corporation was recently awarded a new contract by Air Force Special Operations Command (AFSOC) to design and deliver a secure wireless communications package.
The Secure Wireless Access Modular Package, known as SWAMP-LITE, will provide deployed classified and unclassified communication capability suitable for a small user count, which typifies the special operations environment it will support.
“SWAMP-LITE is based on an Aruba Networks secure mesh topology that will bridge classified and un-classified clients back to the core AFSOC element,” said Rob Smith, director of technology and architecture for Telos Secure Networks. “The deployment kit can integrate into the existing network package being fielded by AFSOC, or operate as an autonomous network providing a high degree of flexibility for mission deployments.”
From the user’s perspective, SWAMP-LITE, simplifies the delivery of Secret Internet Protocol Router Network (SIPRNet) over a wireless network, providing next-generation communications for special operators around the globe. “Wireless is the next logical step in providing lighter and more flexible secure tactical communications,” said Col. Tony Faughn, director, Communications and Information Directorate, Headquarters Air Force Special Operations Command.
The Aruba mesh topology is one of the first end-to-end secure solutions available in the WiFi market today.
