iDirect Government Debuts New 3.4.1 Evolution Software Which Powers 9-Series Defense Remotes and Line Cards and Delivers Advanced Features

Software Brings Enhanced TRANSEC, Performance and Efficiency to Company's Next-Generation Satellite Communications Equipment

HERNDON, VA--(Marketwired - May 23, 2016) - iDirect Government (iDirectGov), a leading provider of satellite communications to the military and government, today unveils its Evolution 3.4.1 software, which powers the company's next-generation 9-Series portfolio of remotes and defense line cards. iDirectGov will showcase the new software release in the company's booth, No. 1712, during the 2016 Special Operations Forces Industry Conference (SOFIC), which runs today through May 26 in Tampa.

Evolution 3.4.1 delivers enhanced features in security, performance and efficiency to the 9-Series product line in support of the company's defense and government customers whenever and wherever they need effective satellite communications. The software supports the 950mp, 900 and 9350 remotes as well as the DLC-T and DLC-R defense line cards -- all from a single platform.

Offering the latest transmission security (TRANSEC) enhancements in the air, on land and at sea, the Evolution platform is Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) Level 3 certifiable. The 9-Series remotes and DLC line cards support dual-domain TRANSEC. One-way TRANSEC is a new feature that secures broadcast traffic from the hub to a network of receive-only remotes

The flexible and scalable 3.4.1 software enables 9-Series remotes to operate and coexist in future networks, helping defense and government customers to easily transition to future releases. The flexibility of 3.4.1 simplifies the recovery of remotes without local manual intervention.

Bringing iDirectGov's 9-Series to life, the new software release enables secure, fast and flexible satcom on a global scale. With the Evolution platform, the entire 9-Series line of remotes is capable of nearly double the in-route Msps of its predecessor with almost 10 times the packets per second capability.

For airborne, maritime and land-based communications, the latest Evolution software drives the 9-Series with:

  • Mission-critical applications, connectivity and security
  • Efficiency, mobility and ease of use
  • Support of high-speed Communications on the Move (COTM)
  • The ability to run both two-way and one-way networks simultaneously (GBS capable)
  • Extended frequency ranges, which allow users to access the Wideband Global Satellite (WGS) constellation, as well as High Throughput Satellites (HTS)
  • A reduced footprint

"Evolution 3.4.1 delivers a new, advanced level of satellite communications capacity to the field," said John Ratigan, president of iDirect Government. "The satcom software energizes and elevates the 9-Series remotes and line cards, enabling iDirectGov's customers to connect, command and coordinate their critical assets in the field better than ever before. We are enthusiastic about the Evolution platform leading in proficient next-generation satellite communications deployment for airborne, maritime and land-based customers."
