U.S. Air Force Air Combat Command Report Identifies Twisted Pair's WAVE® Software as Able to Improve Multi-Agency Command and Control on Military Installations
SEATTLE --(Business Wire)--
Twisted Pair Solutions Inc (News - Alert)., a recognized leader in critical
communication applications for secure, real-time collaboration anywhere,
on any device, today announced that the U.S. Air Force Air Combat
Command has recommended the '..acquisition of WAVE (News - Alert) or equivalent
capability to support emergency response operations..' for military
installations. With WAVE deployed, Air Force personnel and local police,
fire and other emergency rescue workers would be able to communicate
with each other on smartphones, tablets and conventional two-way radios
over any secure radio and WiFi (News - Alert) network.
The Air Force's findings are published in a report written by the Air
Force Command and Control Integration Center which hosted the Unified
Capabilities II (UC II) experiment from 16 July to 20 July 2012 at
Langley AFB, VA. This Joint Expeditionary Forces Experiment (JEFX)
supported unit level operational needs by experimenting with mobile
technologies that included Apple (News - Alert) iPhones and iPads. The purpose of the
event was to conduct a technical and operational utility experiment on
cellular mobile devices' capability to support collaborative command and
control between Air orce first responders, installation command and
control centers, on scene commanders and regional authorities.
'The entire Department of Defense (DoD) is heavily impacted by high
communication sustainment costs and the need to move toward IP-based
Unified Capabilities,' the report states. 'This JEFX successfully
explored hardware and software requirements for the utilization and
integration of mobile technologies that support unit level requirements
during emergency management operations.'
Twisted Pair's patented WAVE software allows smartphones and tablets to
securely connect to existing Land Mobile Radio (LMR) infrastructure and
enabling existing infrastructure to expand and securely transmit
critical voice and data through the use of 4G/LTE (News - Alert) devices.
"During heightened threat levels or when incidents occur, base security
and appropriate incident management is put at risk when military radio
networks can't communicate easily with civilian first responders and law
enforcement agencies," said Tom Guthrie, Twisted Pair's President and
"WAVE creates a tightly integrated communications environment,
eliminating borders, boundaries and limitations by uniting all
communications devices regardless of technology, manufacturer, frequency
WAVE is currently deployed by all branches of the U.S. Military and a
growing number of coalition forces. It holds a U.S Army Certificate of
Networthiness and is on the NATO Approved Suppliers list.
