Intelligent Waves (IW), a leading tech integrator that provides mission-focused, multi-domain operational expertise and innovation to the Federal Government, has entered into a strategic technology collaboration, integrating Trulifi by Signify technology with IW’s GRAYPATH (GP) solution and developing an obfuscated, non-RF solution that enhances the mission of the next-gen warfighter and battles.
For decades, the United States has been at war with adversaries where the military’s superior C4I capabilities allowed communication uncontested across all domains of warfare with little resistance. As the US enters a new era of warfare with near-peer adversaries, communication occurs in highly monitored and contested environments, allowing the detection, identification, interception, and denial of network communications methods relied upon for decades.
With IW's GRAYPATH solution plus Trulifi by Signify, military forces on the ground can communicate outside of the radio spectrum, enabling critical communications between dispersed locations without deconfliction of the spectrum.
GRAYPATH Next-Generation enables the obfuscated transmission of sensitive data over any transport method native to any current airfield communication package, but it also enables transmission within host country communications networks that may be available during FEAS operations. GP additionally operates via asymmetric routing, ensuring the highest level of redundant communications by employing all transport paths simultaneously.
As a result, smaller, low-bandwidth dishes can be combined, ultimately increasing bandwidth, which allows high-speed communications that would not otherwise be possible until larger communication packages were employed, resulting in better reporting of photos, videos, and other information to commanders.
Chief Strategy Officer of Intelligent Waves, John Hammes, said, "Intelligent Waves is thrilled to incorporate Signify’s light-based communication solution with our award-winning cyber defense platform, GRAYPATH, which currently serves the most demanding and secure special operators in austere environments, and we look forward to integrating Trulifi by Signify into our existing platform."
LiFi technology, a two-way wireless connection enabled by light, allows for reliable, high-speed data transmissions. Instead of radio, invisible light is used for communication, making the connection impervious to jamming. The integration with GRAYPATH provides low-probability detection and low probability intercepted communications from an enterprise to an operational environment.
Using GRAYPATH, users can employ several methods of transport simultaneously while utilizing quantum-resistant routing and encryption techniques to grant operators freedom of movement in the cyber realm. Signals from electromagnetic sources are eliminated when LiFi is implemented in an operational environment, providing users with a fast, easy-to-deploy, and wire-free solution that is both time-efficient and secure, reducing the likelihood that they will be intercepted, jammed, or disrupted by adversaries.
This exciting collaboration between Intelligent Waves and Trulifi by Signify will be showcased at SOF Week on May 9–11, 2023, in booth 1805 in the C4 and Special Reconnaissance section on the 2nd floor of the Tampa Convention Center. SOF Week provides special operations and industry partners the opportunity to reexamine SOF policies, investments, and activities, find ways to augment existing SOF capabilities, foster rapid future capability development and employment, and leverage relationships with allies and partners.
