REDCOM has been a key part of WIN-T for more than 10 years, and we look forward to delivering the next wave of innovations to support the Army.

REDCOM Laboratories, Inc., the leading supplier of tactical edge communications systems, is pleased to announce it will be exhibiting at the 2017 Association of the United States Army (AUSA) Annual Meeting Exposition, 9-11 October in booth #654.

At AUSA, REDCOM will be conducting live interoperability demos that show how the company’s technology can reliably connect virtually any voice communications system in the world, from strategic command and control out to the tactical edge. One REDCOM system can provide connectivity between AS-SIP phones, landlines, smartphones, satellite phones, radios, and even magneto crank-phones.

“REDCOM has been a key part of WIN-T for more than 10 years, and we look forward to delivering the next wave of innovations to support the Army,” said REDCOM President Dinah Gueldenpfennig Weisberg. “Our latest solutions — which we’ll be showing at AUSA — continue REDCOM’s tradition of delivering unmatched interoperability, reliability, and security.”

REDCOM will also be exhibiting the latest versions of its military-grade software, Sigma Core and Sigma Client. Sigma Core is the company’s powerful and flexible software-based call control platform that delivers a comprehensive set of UC functions, including VoIP, point-to-point video, XMPP with presence, conferencing, and unified messaging. Sigma Client is a secure VoIP app for Windows® and Android™ with full preemption controls and Push-to-Talk for instantaneous voice communication via IP.

Low SWaP call control for the tactical edge

“Together, REDCOM and PacStar have reimagined what it means to be low SWaP at the tactical edge,” said Chris Fish, Director of Government Programs at REDCOM. “The PacStar 400-Series is the ideal platform for our Sigma Core software, enabling us to deliver powerful and secure call control capabilities to organizations requiring a proven, small form factor comms package.”

REDCOM is proud to announce that Sigma® Core 2.0.1 can now be integrated on PacStar 451 and 455-Series of rugged communications modules, delivering dramatically improved capabilities for tactical, expeditionary and mobile organizations. Integrated with PacStar 400-Series, REDCOM Sigma Core can function as a stand-alone Local Session Controller (LSC) or as an adjunct to an existing Enterprise Session Controller (ESC) to deliver advanced voice services such as transcoding and conferencing for red and black networks. REDCOM will be joining PacStar in booth #1552 for live demonstrations.

“PacStar 400-Series customers can benefit tremendously with the integration of REDCOM’s Sigma Core software into our platform,” said Peggy Miller, chief executive officer for PacStar. “With the addition of the comprehensive suite of secure, interoperable, unified communications capabilities in Sigma Core, our customers have a one-stop shop to meet their military-ready networking and communications needs.”

Defense against the denied environment

At AUSA, REDCOM will also showcase CrucialConnect™, the company’s solution for communicating in a denied environment. CrucialConnect is a family of customizable and deployable packages designed to restore critical communications in minutes, with options for HF, VHF, LTE, and SATCOM redundancy.

“Today’s warriors must understand the challenges of the cyber domain, learn how to leverage it to their advantage, and most importantly be well-versed and practiced in sustaining critical command and control functions in the cyber denied environment,” said REDCOM Director of Strategy, Col Mike Sweeney, USMC (Ret). “REDCOM’s products are designed to provide our troops, first responders, and government agencies with unmatched security, connectivity, and interoperability in the IP environment while providing the mechanisms to communicate securely when that environment has been rendered inoperable.”


REDCOM specializes in the design and manufacture of advanced tactical and strategic communications solutions with a focus on interoperability, reliability, and security. REDCOM’s MIL-spec products are optimized for low size, weight, and power (SWaP), making them the ideal communications core for denied environments or deployments to the tactical edge. The company’s latest innovation, Sigma Core, is a military-grade software platform that delivers robust call control, media handling, and encrypted communications. REDCOM’s customers include all branches of the military, government agencies, emergency responders, integrators, and enterprises.
