Parvus Ethernet switches support Warfighter Information Network-Tactical (WIN-T) program
Amaro (Italy) – June 19th, 2013 – Parvus Corporation, a Eurotech subsidiary, announced today $4.8M USD in follow-on orders from General Dynamics C4S, the prime contractor for the U.S. Army’s Warfighter Information Network-Tactical (WIN-T) program, the U.S. Army’s highest modernization priority. Parvus has been supplying General Dynamics with ruggedized Ethernet switches for the WIN-T tactical network for the past four years. In total, more than 2000 units have already been deployed or are scheduled for delivery. Deliveries for the latest follow-on orders are expected to happen over the next 3-5 months.
WIN-T Increment 2 leverages proven commercial and government technology, including a ruggedized Cisco-based Ethernet switch subsystem from Parvus, to enable soldiers and commanders with vital communications capabilities on the move and enhance soldier safety and effectiveness.
“WIN-T utilizes Parvus’ rugged COTS networking technology to make on-the-move networks possible and free soldiers from a fixed command post,” said Parvus President Dusty Kramer. “Parvus Ethernet switches are ruggedized to ensure reliability in extreme conditions in the field, and we are pleased our products are assisting the U.S. Army as they update their mobile infrastructure to provide vital situational awareness to soldiers during missions.”
WIN-T Increment 2 began fielding in October 2012 and allows soldiers to utilize applications for maneuver, fires and intelligence from inside vehicles, enabling commanders to make decisions on-the-move and ensuring effective and unpredictable offensive and defensive operations.
