Command Information Leverages the Power of IPv6 for Combat Communications

HERNDON, Va., May 10 / - The Advanced Incident Response Solution (AIRS) is designed to support the military in combat situations by monitoring real-time vital signs, environmental conditions and locations over a secure, hastily formed network. Command Information (, the largest and fastest-growing IPv6 solutions provider, will demonstrate the solution today at "The New New Internet: IPv6 Conference" in Arlington, Virginia in the Technology Showcase.

"The advanced networking capabilities of AIRS will provide military commanders and personnel with the tactical data needed to effectively manage an operation," said Vice Admiral Jerry O. Tuttle, U.S. Navy, (Ret.) "Best of all, the information will be available in time for the commander to direct warfighters in real-time as new information is compiled."

"Communications are a vital component of any military operation and we are leveraging innovations in communications that IPv6 brings to the real world," said Tom Patterson, chief executive officer of Command Information. "As a true net-centric solution for military communications, AIRS is available to be immediately and cost-effectively adopted by the military that require mobile ad-hoc network solutions and real-time visibility to save lives."

AIRS, built in conjunction with Cisco, Arch Rock, and pTerex provides the first fully net-centric, end-to-end IPv6 solution for merging the situational awareness of soldiers, their commanders and their environment into a single, real-time Common Operational Picture. AIRS enables real time transfer of critical information and networked awareness of all incident outcome determinants including:

o Location and biometric/environmental conditions of warfighters;

o Condition and environmental activity of surroundings;

o Location, availability and condition of military assets;

o Ad hoc situational awareness of, and full communication with, new
warfighters as they enter the situation; and

o Fully executed on-site Command Center and/or Headquarters engagement in
every facet of incident response.

AIRS capitalizes on a structured, scalable approach to the implementation and management of mobile IPv6, wireless personal area networks, NEMO peer-to- peer networks, and IPv6 low power wireless personal area networks to enable the full power of mobile ad-hoc networking to be brought to bear on any emergency.
