Tactical networks and communication systems


Software-managed, tactical and deployable communications systems.


Advanced tactical networks and communications systems

Software-managed, tactical and deployable communications systems. Secure IP-based voice, data, and video communications to remote, temporary, and infrastructure-starved environments. Rapidly-deployable communications systems are ideal for mobile and remote tactical military communications, and for disaster preparedness and disaster response communications. We support international corporate operations in developing countries without stable communications infrastructures, and international oil and gas companies with remote communications needs.

Tactical networks and communication systems

Today’s military needs lightweight, compact, mission-critical communications systems that support the transition from a platform-centric force to a network-centric force. Decision superiority is key to military success. Timely decision-making requires advanced military communications technologies to quickly deliver data from field locations. The military needs low-cost, flexible solutions without increasing its dependence on centralized communications networks.

Tactical & deployable communications systems fill the need

PacStar’s series of tactical & deployable communications products was created to meet specific requests for technology advances by our largest military customers. The PacStar systems operate using our proprietary IQ-Core® Software, a user-friendly software platform that reduces thousands of pages of communications equipment operating instructions and documents to easy-to-use GUI-based wizards. This advance reduces operator training requirements and makes high-speed broadband, IP-based voice, data, and video deployable for a wide range of field personnel. Additionally, PacStar packages our software and communications hardware into rugged, mobile communications systems that meet military specifications.

A full range of communications and network expertise

PacStar supplies US and foreign government and military agencies with managed tactical & deployable communications products, advanced LAN routing and switching, secure wireless networks, and voice integration systems.
