Secure Wireless Command Post Extension (SWCP-X)

PacStar SWCP-X enables classified and unclassified wireless for vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-end user device (V2E) communications in expeditionary and tactical environments

The U.S. armed forces have called for more mobility, maneuverability, interoperability, and reduced setup time for tactical command posts. To meet those objectives, command post programs are moving away from large complexes relying on multiple tents, to architectures based on vehicle-mounted communications shelters utilizing wireless technologies. This new approach promises to dramatically reduce setup time associated with constructing tents and datacenter-like infrastructure and laying thousands of feet of cable. To make this happen, programs are looking to small form factor, rugged, commercial-off-the-shelf technologies that fit within limited spaces and provide wireless network access inside vehicle shelters and between vehicles.

PacStar SWCP-X is a key component of a modern vehicle-mounted command post program. It is a small modular, commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) communications package that enables Mission Command Platforms to communicate with Command Post Support Vehicles over mesh wireless networks, while simultaneously extending the benefit of network access and wireless local area network (WLAN) services to remote users on Mission Command Platforms.
