ASHBURN, Va., July 1 (UPI) -- The U.S. Air Force has contracted Telos to design and deliver a secured communications system that supports special operations environments.
U.S. company Telos was awarded the contract from the Air Force Special Operations Command. Under the deal, Telos will deliver its Secure Wireless Access Modular Package, known as SWAMP-LITE.
The SWAMP-LITE, based on an Aruba Networks technology, will be required to support a secured wireless "deployed classified and unclassified communication capability suitable for a small user count, which typifies the special operations environment," a news release said.
"SWAMP-LITE is based on an Aruba Networks secure mesh topology that will bridge classified and unclassified clients back to the core Air Force Special Operations Command element," Rob Smith, Telos Secure Networks director of technology and architecture, said in a statement.
"The deployment kit can integrate into the existing network package being fielded by Air Force Special Operations Command, or operate as an autonomous network providing a high degree of flexibility for mission deployments."
