Project Description

Design, Build, Manage, & Maintain Broadband Fiber Cable Network

A satellite communications system provided The Ronald Reagan Ballistic Missile Defense Test Site with all of its test, data gathering, and information technology requirements but faced severe limitations and latency issues. Truestone resolved these limitations by providing a relatively limitless high speed, low latency and secure broadband solution for meeting and exceeding all current and future needs while adhering to network compatibility requirements. Truestone managed the installation, configuration, operations, maintenance, and upgrades of the submarine fiber optic cable system that stretched 2,917 kilometers (1,812 miles) between Kwajalein and Guam without sacrificing system operations or performance.

  • Design the Kwajalein Cable System (KCS) configuration and install network and system components at Kwajalein, Guam, and the Network Operations Center (NOC) in Herndon, Virginia.
  • Implement DCN encryption for transmission compliant with NIST and U.S. Army guidelines.
  • Provide HANTRU1 dashboard control monitoring and administration capabilities on a 24x7x365 basis through Kwajalein, Guam and the Herndon Network Operations Center headquartered at Truestone.
  • Enable exchange of large volumes of secure data at minimal latency and to provide for new and enhanced Research, Development, Test & Evaluation (RDT&E) information technology capabilities.
  • Provide on-site access to Level-1 and Level-2 Help Desk and Technical Support.
