Communications Capability Deployed in Key Air Force Command and Control Systems
by BWW News Desk - Jul 29, 2014

SPRINGFIELD, Va., July 29, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) The Tactical Voice Communications System (TVCS) developed by Cornet Technology, Inc. (CTI) is a key component of a fielded command and control (C2) system managing aircraft flying in support of combat operations. Originally fielded in 2009 in the Battlespace Command and Control Center (BC3) employed by the U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM) for airspace management in the Arabian Gulf region, Iraq, and Afghanistan; the TVCS fuses secure / unsecure telephones, tactical radios, and crew intercom that enables airmen, Joint, and coalition mission crewmembers to conduct air surveillance and C2 operations. An advanced version of the TVCS is being integrated into the next generation BC3 v2.0 that will Soon be operational in an undisclosed location in the Arabian Gulf area.   Building on the demonstrated combat effectiveness of the BC3's TVCS; the Air Force Lifecycle Management Center (AFLCMC), Hanscom Air Force Base, Massachusetts announced the successful completion of its test of the AN/TRC-213 v3.2.  The TVCS is a key component of this mobile communications interface system that provides the USAF ground-based Control and Reporting Center (CRC) with access to over thirty-five distributed tactical UHF, VHF, HF, and SATCOM radios within any given combat theater.   'With a radar-based C2 system providing 'eyes-on' all Air Force, Joint, and Coalition aircraft movements in any area of operations, a 24/7/365 communications capability is what puts the teeth in operational C2,' said Wanda Whiteman, CTI's TVCS project lead. 'The Air Force is better able to manage airspace over a combat area when they can simultaneously provide direction to an aircraft, coordinate with supporting agencies over secure telephone, and keep BC3 and CRC mission crew leadership aware of the operation through secure intercom.'   Nat Kumar, CEO of Cornet Technology, Inc., conveyed the following, 'The pride my employees feel when they interact with a young airman who conveys the value of the TVCS is profound. When troops-in-contact require immediate air support, the TVCS is the system used to put out the call and move the air assets to-the-fight; that motivates us every single day.' The BC3 was designed, built, tested, and delivered in less than a year by a team of contractors working for the US Navy Space Warfare Systems Center – Atlantic and the U.S. Army Space and Missile Defense Battle Lab using Global War on Terrorism funding. CTI is a noted expert in the design and development of communications hardware and software and takes pride in its 'MADE IN AMERICA' manufacturing capability in support of both military and emergency response agencies. CTI is a leader in Joint Battlespace communications integration and provides an effective, affordable, and reliable integrated communications solution to a wide-ranging domestic and international customer base including the US Air Force, US Navy, US Army and US Marines.

BWW Reviews: Mu Performing Arts' Production of Sondheim's A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC is Another Must-See Summer Musical
by Jill Schafer - Jul 28, 2014

A few weeks ago I wrote that the Guthrie's My Fair Lady is the must-see summer musical. Correction: it's one of two. Mu Performing Arts' production of Stephen Sondheim's A Little Night Music should also be on your must-see list; it's every bit as good as My Fair Lady. The songs might not be as 'hummable and quotable,' but they're clever and beautifully complex in a way that only a Sondheim score can be. The music sounds gorgeous, the costumes are luscious, the show is funny but a little sad too, and the cast is fantastic (and by the way, they also happen to be Asian-American). It's another gorgeous production of a classic. (more...)
