Another Evolution For iDirect Government's Evolution Platform With New 9-Series

iDirect Government (iDirectGov) has unveiled their 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 #1712 during the 2016 Special Operations Forces Industry Conference (SOFIC), which runs today through May 26 in Tampa, Florida.
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

John Ratigan, the President of iDirect Government, indicated that the 9-series remotes and line cards have been elevated to a new and advanced level, which enables the company's customers to connect, command and coordinate their critical assets in the field better than ever before experienced.
