State-of-the-Art Systems Safeguard Troops with Real-Time Communications
Huntsville, Ala., February 11, 2014– SCI Technology, Inc. (SCI), a division of Sanmina Corporation, (Nasdaq: SANM), today announced that it has received multiple production awards for the TOCNET® InterCommunications System (ICS). These recent awards total more than 2200 fully equipped ICS kits for a variety of U.S. military tactical wheeled vehicles. SCI has delivered tens of thousands of TOCNET® ICS solutions to the U.S. Army and U.S. Marine Corps, supporting programs that include fixed and mobile shelters and vehicle platforms.
The TOCNET® family of products includes the TOCNET® Classic system, which is the Program of Record solution deployed in the U.S. Army’s Command Post Platform (CPP) and Tactical Operation Centers (TOCs). The TOCNET® Vehicular system was specifically designed to address the complex operational requirements, missions and demanding environments of tactical vehicle platforms. TOCNET® has proven to be the most capable, mature, and advanced ICS system available anywhere.
“SCI is proud to have deployed the TOCNET® system to so many military users who have used it for linking critical assets together, helping achieve mission overmatch,” said Mike Underwood, President of SCI. “We continue to invest in TOCNET® to ensure it remains the world’s most robust and capable ICS solution. Enabling greater war-fighter effectiveness through superior real-time communications is what SCI is committed to deliver to our military users.”
TOCNET® ICS equipment enables state of the art, on-platform intercommunications and is fully network enabled, bridging mission critical intersystem communications to large networks across the battlefield. TOCNET® maintains multiple accreditations including an Authority to Operate (ATO) on SIPRNet, JITC Certification, and Certificate of Net-worthiness. TOCNET® has an open and modular software defined architecture. TOCNET® provides low bandwidth VoIP, remote radio control and radio crossbanding, extensive conferencing, and superior voice quality. In addition to fixed and mobile shelters, TOCNET® is also deployed in multiple C2 systems throughout the DoD’s missile defense systems, UAS universal ground stations, airborne ISR applications, watercraft, and numerous ground vehicle platforms. TOCNET® is developed, manufactured, and supported by SCI in Huntsville, Alabama.
“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.”
