iDirect Government

The new Evolution Defense 4.6 platform supports the next generation modular satellite modem for secure MILSATCOM applications

HERNDON, Va., Oct. 31, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — iDirect Government (iDirectGov), a leading provider of satellite communications for the United States military and government, today introduced its REVOLUTION 450mp (portable) software-defined radio (SDR) modem, which expands the choice of satellite communications orbit and waveform for the warfighter regardless of location.

The 450mp is the first Series 4 SDR introduced with the new Evolution Defense 4.6 software. The Evolution Defense 4.6 platform features enhanced security, including flexible key exchange for crypto-flexibility, Transmission Security Enhanced (TRANSEC), and Advanced Communication Signal Interference Elimination™ (CSIR) technology.

With the 450mp SDR, the Department of Defense (DOD) has satellite orbit and waveform options for its mission-critical operations, including secure satellite communications and intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR).

Featuring a small footprint with a total of 30% reduction in overall size, weight and power (SWaP), the 450mp SDR supports multiple orbits – geostationary, highly elliptical, medium Earth orbit and low earth orbit – and a variety of waveforms, all on one modem. The high-performance and secure satellite modem extends users’ resilience to the tactical level and provides flexibility for ever-evolving missions.

The Human Portable Modem allows operators to build and operate multi-orbital communications networks that can withstand cyber and electronic warfare threats. The 4-Series SDR modem is designed to meet government standards, namely Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 140-2 level 3 and Wideband Global SATCOM.

“The REVOLUTION 450mp SDR focuses on security, resilience and mobility – the critical foundations of iDirectGov’s defense platform,” said Tim Winter, president of iDirect Government. “Additionally, Evolution Defense 4.6 delivers improved communications, protection, performance and efficiency to support the company’s defense and government customers whenever and wherever they need effective satellite communications.” Great together, 450mp and Evolution Defense 4.6 will bring improvements to the resilience and flexibility of mission-critical communications at the tactical edge.”

Since its inception in 2007, iDirectGov has supported the Department of Defense and other agencies, solving their communications challenges with efficient and exceptional delivery.
