The device provided secure connections, (voice, video, data) between the military servicemembers forward deployed in the field and the upper echelons back at the command. The servicemen and women in the trenches would use this device to relay information to the headquarters command rapidly and receive orders back just as quickly. This device ensured that the commanders are able to make informed decisions for quick action. It also gave the service members access to computer information and search engines in remote areas. The FALCON uses standard Internet Protocol but in a highly secure way with easy transport. The integrated device is ruggedized and can be set up quickly for secured communications for U.S. and coalition partners.
