USMC extends Networking On-The-Move contract with PacStar
PORTLAND, Ore. The U.S. Marine Corps Networking On-The-Move (NOTM) program will receive additional PacStar 400-series products to enhance warfighter networking and communications capabilities while on-the-move. The new Marine Corps contract is worth $10.7 million and follows a separate $10 million contract announced in September.
PacStar 400-Series modules include secure, networking, and cybersecurity capabilities from Cisco, designed and engineered by PacStar into modules ideal for both vehicle-mounted and command post use.
“Networking on-the-move capabilities are increasingly critical to today’s warfighter,” says Peggy Miller, chief executive officer for PacStar. “Through our continued support for the U.S. Marine Corps, the PacStar 400-Series equipment will be installed into a wide array of existing and future tactical ground vehicles to provide warfighters with modularity and reliability to communicate on-the-move.”
NOTM will continue to install PacStar 400-Series equipment into existing tactical ground vehicles including MRAP-ATV, HMMWV, and Amphibious Assault Vehicles. Over time, the modules will be installed on newly built ground vehicles.
