 Press Releases

  • Come to AFCEA WEST 2016 at the San Diego Convention Center Feb 17-19 (booth #900) to learn more about Trident System's latest product in their cross domain capabilities - Voice and Video Cross Domain Solution (V2 CDS)

    The balance between protecting and sharing critical information has never been more crucial than in today’s Joint and Coalition military environment. Voice over IP audio and point-to-point video are common tools for operational information-sharing networks throughout the DoD and Intelligence Community (IC). However, the current collaborative infrastructure between armed forces creates communities of users who frequently are unable to communicate outside of their network or security domains quickly and effectively. Until now…

    Trident Systems’s new Voice and Video Cross-Domain Solution (V2 CDS) delivers VoIP audio and video telecommunications across network security boundaries using existing call managers and videophones in a user-friendly and timely manner.  V2 CDS authenticates users and reduces covert channels to an acceptable risk, while simultaneously maintaining point-to-point video capability.

    • Instantly & securely relays vital video & real-time voice across different security domains
    • Provides face-to-face communication to reduce uncertainty, strengthen trust & expedite collaboration
    • Supports cross-domain, point-to-point videophone calls & point-to-point & multi-party audio calls
    • Cross domain calls are as easy as placing a long distance call
    • Supports existing Voice over IP (VoIP) infrastructures, including popular Private Branch Exchange (PBX) servers & SIP-compatible IP phones, with minimal hardware required
    • Provides Recording for Playback and Analysis
    • Designed to meet rigorous Department of Defense (DoD) and National Security Agency (NSA) standards
    • Assured Pipeline Architecture protects sensitive conversations and minimizes covert channels
    • Supports 3+ domain connectivity with multiple V2 CDS servers

    Based on government testing, V2 CDS can support at least 1000 Audio & 120 Video Conversations across two security domains.  V2 CDS implements requisite NIST 800.53 and CNSS 1253 security controls and has completed Government evaluation.  V2 CDS is SABI certified with TSABI certification soon to follow.  Current and planned deployments for V2 CDS include EUCOM, DISA, AFLCMC, STRATCOM, PACAF, PACOM, SPAWAR, ODNI, DCGS and CENTCOM. V2 CDS is a guard evaluated for operation at Protection Level 4 (PL4) to instantly and securely relays vital video and real-time voice across different security domains, providing face-to-face communication to reduce uncertainty, strengthen trust & expedite collaboration. For more information, contact Trident Systems at acs@tridsys.com.  The Government Program Office for V2 CDS is the Collaboration Gateway (CG) Program Management Office at the Air Force Research Lab (AFRL) in Rome NY, cg@us.af.mil.

  • Come to AFCEA WEST 2016 at the San Diego Convention Center Feb 17-19 (booth #900) to learn more about Trident System's Tactical Chat (TacChat) (Rel.) 1.2 which is now on the Department of Defense (DoD) Unified Capabilities (UC) Approved Products List (APL), Tracking Number (TN) 1436301, as an Extensible Messaging and Presence Protocol (XMPP) Chat Client & Server

    The collaborative tool most often used for critical information exchange on military networks is tactical chat. In many scenarios chat is preferred over radio because of its ability to reach multiple geographically dispersed participants simultaneously and to provide a persistent and readily user accessible log of the conversations.  TacChat is an enhanced XMPP (Extensible Messaging and Presence Protocol) standards-based secure chat server with features to provide increased reliability and higher performance on secure single-domain networks.

    TacChat is compliant with DoD IT Standards Council’s Registry (DISR) mandate for XMPP deployment and has been Certified through the CENTCOM 25-200 Process.  TacChat is interoperable with other XMPP servers such as Openfire, Cisco Jabber XCP, and Isode M-Link.  In addition to the capabilities introduced in TacChat v1.1 such as single sign-on, fast connect/re-connect, Time-to-Live(TTL) and other optimizations, version 1.2 provides:

    • Distributed Multi-User Chat (DMUC) - allows continuity of operations in group chat rooms utilized in a federated server environment such that if the master room is unavailable, everyone else in the federated environment can continue to carry out operations in the chat room.
    • Conversation Retrieval & Reporting - allows an authorized user to query chat room history for a user defined period of time via an out-of-band web interface.  A PDF can be created from the query results for printing or distribution.
    • Lockable Group Chat Settings - allows the user to create a room on demand with default settings for use which cannot be changed by the user.

    The US Army PEO EIS Test Report 2013 says TacChat is “Highly resilient and throttles connection attempts very effectively under heavy load….only server to remain operational throughout the load testing”.  During the Coalition Warrior Interoperability eXploration, eXperimentation and eXamination eXercise (CWIX) in 2013, all information exchange objectives were achieved and all systems were interoperable between the U.S., NATO, and Coalition Partners.  TacChat can support up to 100,000 concurrent users per server and can scale by federating multiple TacChat servers.  TacChat supports existing XMPP servers such as Jabber (XCP) and M-Link and most XMPP compliant clients.  TacChat comes with TransVerse as its default chat client.  TransVerse is deployed on the Air Force Standard Desktop and is part of DISA Defense Collaboration Services (DCS).

    TacChat is deployed and being used operationally by US Forces and Coalition Partners and has been selected as a XMPP chat solution by major defense programs.  Installation (in both native and virtual environments), on-site training and help desk support is available.

  • The collaborative tool most often used for critical information exchange on military networks is chat. In many scenarios chat is preferred over radio because of its ability to reach multiple geographically dispersed participants simultaneously and to provide a persistent and readily user accessible log of the conversations.  CG is an open-standards-based solution that enables secure, bi-directional, cross-domain chat and whiteboard collaboration.  CG supports DoD mandated standard for chat - XMPP (Extensible Messaging and Presence Protocol).

    CG v3 is ICD 503 compliant, certified for TSABI deployments and is going through SABI certification.  CG v3 is interoperable with other XMPP servers such as Openfire, Isode M-Link and others.  In addition to the current capabilities in CG such as whiteboards, federation with other CG servers and support for VMs, CG v3 provides:

    • Federation with other XMPP chat servers within the same domain
    • Dynamic Chat Rooms allowing trusted users to create and manage rooms and room memberships significantly reducing the need for centralized administration of the server
    • User and Room Management improved including configurable cross domain user search to be allowed or not allowed
    • Multiple Active Directory & LDAP Server support
    • One-to-One Cross Domain Chat
    • Java Web Start support enabling single click client updates across the network

    CG v3 was used in the Coalition Warrior Interoperability eXploration, eXperimentation and eXamination eXercise (CWIX) as a core service to the Mission Partner Enterprise.  All information exchange objectives were achieved and all systems were interoperable between the U.S., NATO, and Coalition Partners.  Based on government testing, CG can support at least 100,000 concurrent users per server and can scale further by federating multiple CG servers and with other XMPP compliant chat servers.

    CG is deployed and being used operationally by US Forces and Coalition Partners and is on the AOC 10.2 Baseline (FY14/15).  Installation (in both native and virtual environments), on-site training and help desk support is available.
