Mutualink, Inc. Key Developments

Mutualink, Inc. Announces New Interoperable Data Gateway to Connect Soldiers with Disparate Tactical Networks and C2

Mutualink, Inc. has announced the development of a new Data Gateway providing a secure and easy way for soldiers to exchange tactical and positional information in real time. The technology enables military and coalition partners operating with disparate communications networks and messaging formats to exchange arbitrary data on demand in a highly secure manner. The new capability will increase situational awareness among forces and reduce friendly-fire incidents, which will save lives and improve mission success. It also provides forces with new levels of operational speed and agility to selectively exchange critical data within complex joint, coalition, and other government agency partner environments. Rather than establishing critical data exchange systems in weeks or days, forces can now hit the ground and establish critical real-time data exchange with partners in minutes. Currently under evaluation and testing by the U.S. Marine Corps and NATO, the Mutualink Data Gateway can bi-directionally exchange messages between NATO Standard Agreement (STANAG) 4677 Joint Dismounted Soldier System (JDSS) XML (Extensible Markup Language) format and the Joint Variable Message Format (JVMF), among others. The Mutualink Data Gateway allows TCP (Transmission Control Protocol) connections and UDP (User Datagram Protocol) messages to be selectively and securely shared across an established network. The ability of the Data Gateway to securely bridge otherwise non-routable networks provides a key differentiator in the field. The system also has been successfully evaluated in conjunction with cross-domain solutions such as TACDs (Tactical Cross Domain Solution), providing another level of flexibility and critical information flow between high and low side environments. The new Data Gateway complements Mutualink's powerful real-time interoperable communications and multimedia sharing solution, which enables the secure bridging and exchange of disparate communications and ISR among components and partners. Providing interoperable voice, video, file, and chat capabilities within a unique peer-based platform, Mutualink can utilize any network-available transport to create real-time collaboration among distinct agencies using existing communications and media infrastructure. Mutualink, the interoperable platform of NATO SOF and numerous other elite security and defense agencies, is combat-proven and provides users with exceptional security, scalability, and flexibility.

Mutualink, Inc. Announces Availability of a New Mobile Operations Fusion Kit

Mutualink, Inc. announced the availability of a new mobile operations fusion kit (OFK) for use by military personnel, coalition partners and first responders in the field. The kit, known as OFK 2.0, enables users to connect anywhere and anytime with the most flexible, agile, and secure communications and interoperability "go kit" available on the market now. It enables secure voice, full-motion video and information sharing on a global, real-time basis. The OFK 2.0 is a complete multimedia communications system bundled into a compact, lightweight, waterproof, ruggedized carrying case. The kit is equipped with a military-standard 810G multimedia portable laptop (with microphone and speaker headset), an on-board rechargeable power supply, and connectivity for up to four different radios and communications assets in the field. Equipped with a MIMO mesh radio, OFK kits can be automatically linked together and provide robust broadband data connectivity with speeds as much as 40 Mbps over distances up to 5KM, enabling secure in field broadband device access. With multiband broadband access capabilities and advanced simultaneous access bonding, the OFK can utilize any available broadband wireless data connectivity for backhaul, including on board 4G LTE and 3G cellular mobile, MIMO ISM band and WiFi connectivity, as well as portable satellite and terrestrial connectivity access. OFK can be used to support either a fully-meshed collaboration or an autonomous fielded operation by way of an independent and covert enclave. Easily deployed in minutes, the OFK is an instant Operations Center providing full situational awareness with multiple radio net connectivity, in and out video and ISR sharing, and information sharing. The OFK utilizes a flexible power system capable of both AC and DC power inputs with an advanced rechargeable battery. It has been successfully tested and used with portable solar panel kits providing additional resiliency and usability under austere power conditions. Mutualink's mobile operations fusion kit will be incorporated into the 2014 Joint Users Interoperability Communications Exercise (JUICE), taking place June 16-27 at the Aberdeen Proving Ground (APG), Maryland. Throughout the exercises, OFK 2.0 will continue to undergo intensive testing and development of operational procedures in support of the warfighter and first responder. Over the past year a prototype of the mobile operations fusion kit was evaluated, tested and used by field operators and commanders in the US, Canada, Italy, Poland, and Colombia. Feedback from these real-world experiences directly impacted the development of the OFK 2.0. Key features and benefits include, highly-secure collaboration - all communications are protected by triple redundant AES-256 encryption. Easy to use - no in-field integration is needed; the kit is plug-and play and has an intuitive drag-and-drop user interface. Network agnostic - easily and quickly establish a connection to other users regardless of the available connectivity (3G/4G, WiFi, Ethernet, satellite, IP radio, microwave, Troposcatter, etc.). Affordable - the customer is able to leverage and integrate legacy and newly-acquired systems at an extremely competitive price.
