Spectracom Corporation announces support from the Department of the Air Force Headquarters Global Positioning Systems (GPS) Wing for its NetClock® 9383 precision GPS time server for synchronizing military networks. The 9383 is a network timing appliance that meets the most stringent requirements for reliability and security by integrating a Selective Availability/Anti-Spoofing Module (SAASM). With this security approval by the GPS Wing, Spectracom's 9383 now meets the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Instruction No. 6130.01D that mandates all newly fielded Department of Defense GPS systems use SAASM-compliant devices to reduce vulnerability to jamming or spoofing.
"We understand the importance of reliable time for synchronizing military operations and the need to protect against jamming and/or spoofing. This security approval makes it possible for our NetClock 9383 to be deployed without reservation about its ability to provide precise and reliable synchronized time to mission-critical networks and devices," says Al Olderstein, vice president of Spectracom's Sales and Marketing department.
Lou Orsini, Spectracom's director of engineering, says, "The NetClock 9383 is designed to support the future of network-centric warfare. In addition to the SAASM compliance, other features include the latest implementation of secure and reliable network applications and a mil-spec tested ruggedized chassis."
Olderstein adds, "The GPS Wing security approval makes it possible for Spectracom to supply our military end-users and prime contractors with what they need - a secure network time server that meets the mandate for reliability and security."
