Special Operations Forces (SOF) Tactical Network (C5ISR*) Capabilities
Providing a broad range of tactical C5ISR capabilities supporting local, state, regional and federal networks
Enterprise Ventures Corporation (EVC) provides a broad range of tactical C5ISR capabilities. We support tactical and strategic networks for Special Operation Forces (SOF) both in and outside the continental United States. Additionally, we support a variety of local, state, regional, and federal networks with unique broadband communication requirements. Our subject matter expertise provides direct support to Combat Operations Centers in forward-deployed combat zones. We also support responders to natural and manmade disasters. For clients operating in high threat and high stress environments, EVC is a highly efficient partner in times of greatest need.
Tactical Network Modeling, Simulation and Analysis (MS&A)
EVC’s core competency in Network Modeling, Simulation and Analysis (MS&A) is based on the diverse expertise of our MS&A staff. Our team includes communications product design, network architectures, network protocols, wireless and wired transmission modeling, and network modeling at varying levels of abstraction and fidelity. EVC combines our experience with in-depth knowledge of multiple simulation and analysis tools (such as Riverbed®, QualNet®, and custom tools). Our thorough understanding of the client’s network and requirements ensures maximum return on the MS&A resources invested.
Our expertise in network MS&A can be applied successfully to optimize planning, design, and execution of everything from minor network upgrades to major architectural changes. This includes maximizing the efficient use of existing network resources, rolling out new services and applications, improving network survivability, troubleshooting existing performance problems, and much more.
- Extensive experience with the tools and products that United States Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) is currently using and evaluating. These include: Riverbed®’s Modeling and Simulation tool chain, SteelCentral Network and Performance management with NetPlanner/Modeler, Steelhead appliances for Wide Area Network (WAN) acceleration, and AppResponse NetProfiler for application monitoring and analysis.
- The ability and insight to utilize these technologies to drive innovation and support advanced network-level Service Level Agreements (SLAs) (throughput, latency, availability) and isolate issues before they become critical.
- Riverbed® and QualNet® expertise
We enlist a real-time modeling and simulation capability developed by our parent company, Concurrent Technologies Corporation (CTC). This capability performs predictive data analysis of application (video, voice, and data) performance in broadband municipal wireless, cellular data, satellite, or terrestrial copper/optical networks. It also provides the ability to accurately design and test solutions for critical communication networks in a virtual environment.
EVC’s MS&A can benefit municipalities, counties, and states by:
- Predicting network performance before spending money on deployment
- Pre-installation performance analysis and capacity planning
- Systems and hardware performance modeling
- Traffic flow analysis
- Wireless, wired, and hybrid network simulation
Tactical Network Analysis, Design, Testing, and Integration
EVC’s core competency in Tactical Network Analysis, Design, Testing, and Integration is based on significant experience working in direct support of the United States Marine Corps (USMC).
- Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) with extensive experience developing service-level management solutions. Over 20 years’ experience in Research and Development (R&D) for communication products, including four Service Level Management patents.
- SMEs with extensive experience in modeling and simulation, network analysis, and WAN acceleration. This includes data compression R&D experience and two WAN acceleration patents.
- SMEs with extensive Web development experience using C#, jQuery, java script, and Visual Basic®. With over 10 years’ experience specifically in operational Web-based systems, our knowledge of database system structures used by operational forces allows for rapid integration with existing systems.
- The ability of our SMEs to deploy alongside operational forces to rapidly develop unique collaborative systems to meet their immediate needs.
Tactical Network Support

High Speed Data Communications Systems (HSDCS)
EVC developed and operates a wireless broadband network operating in the licensed bandwidth allocated by the Federal Communication Commission (FCC) for Public Safety (4.9 GHz) and Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) (5.9 GHz) broadband wireless networks.
This network provides a test bed to evaluate the cost/ performance tradeoff when utilizing these types of networks to support public safety and first responders. EVC’s 500-squarefoot Systems Integration Laboratory provides the resources to test and evaluate technologies that are under consideration for public safety or ITS wireless networks. Our experience with Homeland Security and the Department of Defense enables us to facilitate interagency government and private-sector communications for national emergencies. We can provide the common language to communicate between agencies.
