PacStar has been awarded a five-year contract to support U.S. Army network modernization efforts being executed by Project Manager Tactical Network (PM TN).
The contract will deliver more than 9,000 licenses of its flagship IQ-Core Software to enable secure, tactical, and distributed network management.
As a result, the U.S. Army will gain unprecedented network operations visibility and control that extends across many programs including at-the-halt and on-the-move networking within the Army’s brigade combat teams, network management and monitoring conducted at worldwide Regional Hub Node centers, and Expeditionary Signal Battalion (ESB) modernization efforts.
“We remain committed to delivering best-in-class battlefield NetOps solutions, and we are thrilled to continue our work with the U.S. Army for the deployment of IQ-Core Software across PM Tactical Networks,” said Lynn Bamford, President, Defense and Power Segments, Curtiss-Wright Corporation. “IQ-Core Software will help integrate NetOps with cyber and mission operations, equipping the Army with a unified approach for unmatched visibility, control, and situational awareness of tactical networks.”
“PacStar is proud to continue to support the U.S. Army with this deployment to deliver enhanced communications capabilities for the PM TN,” said Peggy J. Miller, Senior General Manager, PacStar. “IQ-Core Software’s ability to increase network visibility and deliver simplified network management at a low cost will help the Army with invaluable communications modernization.”
IQ-Core Software is a comprehensive management software application comprised of three major editions: IQ-Core Remote Operations and Management (ROAM) for distributed management; IQ-Core Crypto Manager (CM) for Commercial Solutions for Classified (CSfC) and Virtual Private Network (VPN) management; and IQ-Core Network Communications Manager (NCM) for nodal management — delivering unprecedented Network Operations Center (NOC)-to-node management capabilities for enhanced battlefield NetOps.
Under this contract, IQ-Core Software will also integrate with on-the-move communications capabilities enabling network management for an expanded range of tactical devices, including Harris’ Highband Network Radio, General Dynamics’ Vertex Antenna and L3 Daytron full-motion antennas for satellite communications.
