“As vehicle CONOPS become more complex and ancillary C4 technologies continue to improve, more is being asked of the vehicle ICS.” said Malcolm Mason, Director of Business Development, SCI. “TOCNET® was the first software defined ICS originally developed to address the tactical networking ICS requirements of Army Command Post environments. These requirements have migrated to the tactical vehicle environment where SCI Technology has been fielding and improving TOCNET® for years. Our model of dedicated support and continued feature enhancements is unique in the current defense environment. TOCNET® continues to evolve as CONOPS and ancillary systems evolve ensuring that TOCNET® remains the most capable Tactical ICS available.”
