PacStar has launched the PacStar Secure Wireless Command Post (SWCP) for classified communications over Wi-Fi and LTE-enabled commercial smartphones and tablets, the company announced on 24 September.

SWCP Transport Layer Security (TLS) is a fully integrated, expeditionary solution that provides soldiers with the ability to transmit classified information over wireless networks in the field.

The small, rugged device can be mounted on military tactical communications vehicles, enabling classified mobile communications for an array of mission types.

By using IPsec VPN clients and servers combined with TLS encryption, SWCP TLS provides security for mobility that is eligible for use in networks up to Top Secret. This approach ensures security of transmitted information even if a single layer contains a flaw or vulnerability.

The PacStar SWCP TLS is based on rugged, small form factor PacStar 400-series modules. Packaged together in rugged transit cases small enough to meet airline carry-on requirements, the modular solution provides flexibility to configure capabilities as organisations need, while minimising SWaP.
