The PacStar Secure Wireless Command Post (SWCP) (Wi-Fi) is a small, modular communications system enabling wireless mobility for smartphones, tablets, and laptops connected to classified and unclassified networks (e.g. SIPRnet, MPE, etc.) in deployed, expeditionary, and tactical environments.
Secure, converged, high-speed wireless infrastructure capable of transmitting classified information, including multiple classified networks up to Top Secret
Complete, standalone system including all CSfC cybersecurity components (PKI, VPN, authentication systems, etc.) necessary to meet NSA guidelines
Expandable/modular system may be customized with added networks or alternative component CSfC technologies
PacStar Secure Wireless Command Post (Wi-Fi)
The solution architecture follows the NSA Commercial Solutions for Classified (CSfC) Campus WLAN Capability Package guidelines. It enables end-user devices to utilize built-in commercial Wi-Fi on mobile devices to provide one layer of the required two-layer NSA encryption. Combined with a single VPN client, end-user devices are able to transmit classified information over Wi-Fi.
The PacStar SWCP as shown provides transport for access to both a SIPRnet network and a NIPRnet network. The solution is configurable (with additional equipment) to provide transport for multiple additional classified and unclassified networks (including networks of different levels of classification up to Top Secret) over a single wireless infrastructure.
The PacStar SWCP is based on the PacStar 400-Series small form factor platform. This modular platform is designed to maximize capabilities with the smallest SWaP possible and is customizable and configurable to meet other NSA CSfC capability packages including MA CP (with LTE or other radio types) and MSC CP. It can be configured to optimally serve a wide range of team sizes and can be customized with additional software and NFV solutions to ensure interoperability with existing customer infrastructure.
PacStar SWCP is managed by PacStar IQ-Core Crypto Manager, which simplifies system CSfC setup, configuration, certificate authority requests, and VPN management.
