PacStar has been awarded a three-year, $6.2 million contract to support the U.S. Army's Warfighter Information Network-Tactical Increment 1.
The indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract is for PacStar's IQ-Core software, which "delivers intuitive communications management by replacing time-intensive, complex and error-prone manual set-up and management processes for battlefield tactical communications systems with configuration wizards that automate both complex and routine tasks," according to a company news release.
IQ-Core's diagnostics provide real-time monitoring of network health, while the interface is designed to be manageable by non-IT personnel. The U.S. Army and the military as a whole requires technology that solves complex battlefield communications challenges and enables soldiers to focus on fighting the battle, not the network, said PacStar CEO Bob Dunn. It is for this reason PacStar continues to see broader demand for IQ-Core Software across the DoD, and we welcome the opportunity to further support and enhance mobile battlefield communications for the U.S. Army.
