Trusted Computer Solutions Inc. signed a $1.77 million deal with the U.S. Air System Command to build a system to allow secure connectivity between simulators with different security classifications.
TCS of Herndon, Va., supplies secure information sharing technologies to the Department of Defense, the intelligence community and commercial industry.
Typically, war-fighter simulators operate in controlled domains and cannot communicate with other simulators without risking accidental disclosure of sensitive data, company officials said. This isolation precludes exercises that mimic real-world operations. TCS' system solves this problem by providing secure two-way automated transfer data.
