US Marines from III MEF joined with ROK Marines in South Korea for MEFEX 2014, an exercise which focuses on interoperability of US Navy and Marine Corps Forces with ROK. Trident’s Secure Communications Controller (SCC) was used by US and ROK Marines to bridge communications between ROK and US radios.

The SCC supports communications cross-connect of disparate audio and data links including Tactical Radios, Land Mobile Radios (LMR), (HF, UHF, VHF), SATCOM, public safety radios, coalition radios, VoIP, cellular networks, and wired/wireless networks. A key feature of the SCC is its ability to cross-link disparate radios, regardless of radio type, half or full-duplex operation, encryption key or frequency hopset. Multiple independent radio networks can be seamlessly cross-linked and, at the same time, maintain their own unique parameters (e.g. encryption, frequency).

Trident supported the exercises using two variants of the SCC; a 1U rack-mounted MIL-STD-1275 unit for simultaneous data and audio cross-connect, and a man-portable Mini-SCC unit which supports audio cross-connect of multiple dissimilar radio networks.

“We’re proud of our role in MEFEX 2014 and look forward to ensuring the US and ROK Marines have effective and seamless communications interoperability,” says James O’Looney, Director of Integrated C4I Systems. “These events are key to exercising combined capabilities and ensuring our mutual preparedness.”
