PacStar has been selected to provide the US Marine Corps (USMC) with a small, modular, networking on-the-move (NOTM) capability for tactical vehicles.

In addition, the company will provide its 400-Series products to the US Army for the expeditionary tactical communications programme.

Jeff Sinclair, PacStar vice-president of sales, told Jane’s that the USMC is seeking to reduce its network hardware footprint to enable deployment of equipment across multiple platforms, including High Mobility Multi Wheeled Vehicles, Mine Resistant Ambush Protected trucks, Amphibious Assault Vehicles, and the MV-22 Osprey tiltrotor aircraft.

NOTM is a command-and-control capability for all elements of the Marine Air Ground Task Force (MAGTF).
