Quintron Systems Inc., a provider of advanced interoperable voice system and physical access control/intrusion detection systems, has announced four more significant system expansion orders from customers of its “DICES IV” and VoIP products.
Received in March, the first two expansion orders will provide a 33 percent increase in system capacity for the existing DICES IV system at the Global Operations Center at USSTRATCOM in Offutt AFB in Omaha, and a 50 percent expansion at an Air National Guard site in Idaho.
With a new user station design, the USSTRATCOM can provider access to 12 external secure audio connections versus the initial design of 6 audio connections. The Approval to Operate was granted to USSTRATCOM by Defense Information Systems Agency in 2006 and allowed for the commission of these systems.
The company also received another expansion for a fourth DICES system for operation in support of NATO/US Army training operations in Germany. Operated by Raytheon (News - Alert) Technical Services, these systems and versions of DICES products have been in use for this mission since 1991.
Recent expansions in these systems have included two DICES IV hardware-based systems and a DICES VoIP client-server system. The new contract is expected to provide for a third DICES IV system, this one and a new USB interface for radio controls.
The United Launch Alliance instigated the most recent new contract for system expansion. This contract includes the support of launch operations for the Atlas V rocket at Cape Canaveral Air Station in Florida.
For this particular contract, a DICES VoIP system is being delivered to provide auxiliary radio support for ULA users located away from the traditional launch control center, which is already serviced by DICES hardware equipment. The new system will use existing corporate LAN.WAN infrastructure to support full-service audio access to engineers and managers from their own computers.
“It is always exciting to receive follow-on orders from our existing customers,” said David E Wilhite, Quintron Vice President and General Manager.
“As this affirms our success at not only delivering superior products that our customers like to use, but also at providing exceptional customer support in operating their systems, such that these customers keep coming back for more Quintron equipment when the needs arise and funds are available.”
These latest contract expansions can be considered by Quintron as a testament to its proven performance in the market, especially with current customers. As the company continues to enjoy expansions and increases in sustainable revenues, it is doing something right. A strategy that keeps Quintron on this same focus will help to extend the company’s reach and market position.
