PORTLAND, Ore.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--PacStar®, a leading developer and supplier of advanced communications solutions for the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD), announced today it has received a Government Innovation Award for the PacStar Secure Wireless Command Post – a small, modular communications package that provides warfighters with the groundbreaking ability to securely transmit classified and unclassified information in tactical settings while using Wi-Fi and LTE-enabled commercial smartphones and tablets.
The Government Innovation Awards showcase the best examples of discovery and innovation in government IT, and is presented by FCW, GCN, Washington Technology and Defense Systems. PacStar received an Industry Innovator award, which recognizes private-sector companies' vital role in the government IT community. Award winners were honored at the Government Innovation Awards dinner, on November 7th in Greater Washington DC.
PacStar SWCP was recognized for the traction it has gained over the past year for its ability to address two complex DoD challenges: 1) how to deliver secure wireless mobility to warfighters, and 2) how to speed setup time at command posts in tactical environments. PacStar is in major implementations with SWCP for the U.S. Army and for the U.S Marine Corps in contracts that could be worth up to $300 million.
“To be recognized as part of the transformative government projects, innovators and vendors focused on reimagining public sector IT is truly an honor,” said Peggy Miller, CEO of PacStar. “We remain focused on hardware and software innovation that addresses the tactical mobility challenges warfighters face every single day, and the traction we are seeing for SWCP across the DoD is a testament to the combined efforts of our team, technology, partners and customers.”
