When USSOCOM sought to outfit the new GMV1.1 and combatant crafts with state-of-the-art tactical intercommunications capabilities, three critical problems were identified. SCI solved all three with the advanced TOCNET®-G4 Unified Voice Management System, responsively addressing USSOCOM’s needs while also maintaining key legacy features.

GMV1In its search for a tactical intercommunications solution for its Family of Special Operations Vehicles (FOSOV), USSOCOM identified the following issues as priorities:
• Minimizing the impact of adopting a new intercommunications system;
• Providing remote radio control to include a waveform utilized specifically by USSOCOM;
• Developing interfaces for the next generation of dual-channel man-pack and handheld radios

In addition to SCI’s responsiveness, USSOCOM selected TOCNET-G4 because it represented the most valuable combination of low SWAP-C and high capabilities in a user-friendly system. Because of this, USSOCOM is also moving towards outfitting its fleet of other combat vehicles including the JLTV and M-ATV.


Minimized Impact

To minimize the negative impacts of adopting a new system, SCI maintained the user-friendly blind-touch interfaces of many legacy systems. This ensures a clear line of continuity between legacy systems and TOCNET-G4, reducing the learning curve for most service members.


ASCM Implementation

In addition to minimized impact, SOCOM noted a preference for remote radio control, including support for the Advanced Special Communications Mode (ASCM) waveform. SCI was the only supplier with implementation for this SOCOM-specific waveform across all radio types.



Next-Gen Development

Finally, SCI worked closely with SOCOM to develop interfaces for the next generation of dual-channel man-pack and handheld radios. This ensured TOCNET’s continued role as a key contributor to SOCOM’s success in land-, air-, and sea-based missions around the globe.
