STACS® 200 Architecture

Network Architecture

  • All endpoints, including Operations Center support any combination of INMARSAT BGAN, VSAT, Cellular and CAT 5 backhaul, deployed as appropriate
     

  • System supports redundant field systems with a single group of Operations Center Digital Interface Ports (failover between the two systems), or two sets of Digital Interface Ports (concurrent operation)
     

  • All network traffic is transferred using AES-256/GCM encryption with RSA-4096 PKI key transfer (RSA used only for over the air keying of all systems)
     

  • Optional cellular and INMARSAT terminals on Operations Center system maintain system operation in case of DDOS or internet infrastructure (DNS, etc) attack
     

Rapid Deployment

  • Field systems only require opening the case, connecting the radios and pressing the power switch to initiate cellular operation
     

  • Automatic selection of two cellular carriers (including Google Fi for international operation)
     

  • INMARSAT BGAN terminal require approximately 2 minutes for setup and connection, link between satellite terminal and case can be Cat 5 or wireless
     

  • Simple touch-screen interface for status and basic management
     

Power Options

  • AC operation, 90-260V 50/60 hz, international plug adapters included
     

  • DC operation, 10-36VDC with reverse and over-voltage protection to 150V
     

  • Dual internal batteries with fully redundant operation and built-in configurations available up to 48 hours of worst-case power consumption
     

  • System can be charged with case closed and can be stored with charger connected with external charge state / fault indicator
     

  • Batteries can be field-swapped while the system is operational
     

System Options

  • Field systems have 4 expansion slots, one of which is consumed by a four port Digital Radio Adapter
     

  • Any combination of sensor interfaces (Area-Rae CBRNE, Smith, etc), Digital and Analog Radio interfaces can be used in the three available slots supporting up to 16 radios
     

  • Three Cat 5 LAN ports are provided for Notebooks, VOIP phones, WiFi Access Points, etc.  Devices can be Internet connected or connected to Operations Center network via VPN
     

Maintenance & Management

  • All configuration and management operations can be performed on any of the remote systems or the Operations Center system via a Browser/Web Interface
     

  • All configuration operations can be performed even when a device is not powered on.  The device will automatically upload the updated configuration when connected
     

  • Each system proactively monitors battery charge and health, even when powered off.  Systems will automatically power up briefly to send a management alert when a battery fault is detected, or the battery charge dips below configurable thresholds (50 and 25% by default)
     

  • Systems can be stored with their cases sealed and an external charger connected indefinitely.
     

  • Systems will maintain 80% of available charge when stored between 50 and 90 degrees F for three months without external charger connected
