Unreliable Wi-Fi in hangars, flight lines, and readiness and maintenance operations prevents the DoD aviators from seeing the full mission value from electronic workflow. ID Technologies and CommScope have teamed up to deliver an end-to-end solution for reliable communications for unit level operations, depot maintenance and support for platoon and battalion fixed and rotary wing operations.
Overview: Building a Simpler, More Powerful Cyber Defense System.
As a trusted IT partner to the United States Department of Defense, our Air Force team creates custom-built technical solutions mindful of the cost drivers that impact the branch’s operations and capabilities.
The 102nd Cyber Operations Squadron (102 COS) is an Air Combat Command (ACC) unit that provides Computer Network Defense (CND) services. CND incorporates actions taken to protect, monitor, analyze, detect, and respond to unauthorized activity within Department of Defense (DoD) information systems and computer networks. The previous 102 COS equipment/infrastructure required additional system components to perform mission tasks. The Hanscom Integrated Test Facility (ITF) needed system implementations to simulate field operations.
ID Technologies’ Air Force team constructed a custom Air Force Cyber Defense (ACD) system to tackle this problem. We worked with our strategic IT partners – Dell, Cisco, HPE, VMware, Palo Alto, BlueCoat, Clearcube, Microsoft, SolarWinds, FireEye, and RedHat – to build this custom solution. We fortified the 102nd Cyber Operations Squadron (102 COS) – North Kingston Rhode Island as a Dual Operations Location (AF and ANG) with the Air Force’s Cyberspace Defense Weapons System (ACD WS). Both the Non-Classified Internet Protocol Router Network (NIPRNet) and the Secret Internet Protocol Router Network (SIPRNet) were successfully upgraded as a result of our solution.
