US Forces-Afghanistan buys tactical comms units

PacStar will deliver 675 of its mobile tactical communications units to Afghanistan for use by U.S. military forces under a $12.2 million contract with U.S. Forces-Afghanistan, company officials said Dec. 15.

The communications services provider will furnish the military forces with 225 of its 2010 SIPR/NIPR Baseband Node (SNBN) units, and also 450 of its 2011 SIPR/NIPR Coalition Enclaves (SNCE) units, the officials said.

The SNBN units offer in-country forces secure, converged communications over wired 3G/4G, WiMax and satellite networks. The SNCE units, when used with the SNBN units, give forces simultaneous access to three major command and control networks.
