U.S. Pacific Air Forces adopt Raytheon SimShield to deliver more realistic training

WASHINGTON, 28 Sept. 2012. U.S. Pacific Air Forces (PACAF) and its 353d Combat Training Squadron were granted a Secret and Below Interoperability (SABI) renewal Authorization to Connect from the Defense Information Assurance Security Accreditation Working Group for SimShield, a training solution from Raytheon Trusted Computer Solutions (RTCS), a wholly owned subsidiary of Raytheon Company (NYSE:RTN).

Also under the contract, RTCS will support the separate Distributed Missions Operations Network (DMON), which enables PACAF training partners to train warfighters in geographically separate locations.

PACAF currently uses the SimShield multilevel transfer guard solution during tactical live range exercises at the Joint Pacific Alaska Range Complex at Eielson Air Force Base. The use of SimShield in such exercises enables training assets that operate under different security classification levels to communicate and interact securely, lending to more realistic training exercises, according to a spokesperson.

"PACAF's use of SimShield to provide secure interoperability across networks at multiple classification levels allows for more realistic and beneficial training exercises for U.S. and coalition troops," says Ed Hammersla, chief operating officer for RTCS. "The ability to connect to DMON means that we can train forces in Australia and the U.S. during the same exercise, for example, greatly enhancing their overall preparedness to combat our global adversaries."
