Ultra selected for continued Link 16 Alaska program support

February 07 2020

Ultra was recently awarded a $30.750M ceiling Indefinite Delivery, Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract to continue supporting the secure, digital, jam-resistant advanced Link 16 network over the austere Alaskan air space. Spanning nearly 15 years, Ultra has supported the United States Air Force Lifecycle Management Center (AFLCMC) and the Alaskan North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) Region’s (ANR) mission of full spectrum air sovereignty, air defense, and homeland security by installing, enhancing and maintaining critical communication suites at both the central and remote sites across the Alaska Area of Responsibility (AOR). Ultra’s proven tactical data link experience coupled with our industry leading remote cryptographic management systems will ensure LAK’s continued high state of readiness and will provide seamless command and control to assigned forces during Joint and Combined operations.

A key-enabler in the LAK program, Ultra is the manufacturer of the Remote Cryptographic Management System (RCMS) and Combined Device Management System (CDMS) allowing remote rekeying, environmental monitoring and control of cryptographic systems across vast distances to remote unmanned locations.

Tim Stanley, President commented:

Ultra’s sustained support of the United States Air Force, NORAD and the United States’ northern border embody our core value of “Innovating today for a safer tomorrow”.  We look forward to providing state of the art solutions to enhance LAK’s mission and the Air Force’s future Advanced Battle Management System (ABMS) concept.
