See Orion’s Push-to-Talk (PTT) 2.0 for Special Operations Forces
Each year, National Defense Industrial Association (NDIA) hosts the Special Operations Forces Conference (SOFIC), bringing members of the special forces community together to discuss the latest challenges facing U.S. Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) and the defense industry and opportunities to enhance operations and embrace innovation.
The newest military-grade technology is a primary feature of SOFIC as special operations forces (SOF) search for next-generation tools that support the demands of their missions now and in the future. This year, Orion will join Carahsoft to showcase how Orion’s innovative PTT 2.0 transforms frontline teams.
Here are four ways PTT 2.0 benefits special operations forces:
#1 Voice AI Bots that help frontline teams respond faster and accomplish more with the same resources.
Voice AI Bots participate in Orion PTT talk groups and are always on and always ready to perform complex, multi-step workflows that offload routine processes, respond to voice queries, and perform tasks based on commands, events, and actions. SOF teams use Voice AI Bots to increase efficiency and amplify their abilities on the go with automated workflows like checklists, geofence or location-based triggers, emergency or all call alerts, language translation, and more.
#2 All communications are secure with end-to-end encryption (E2EE).
E2EE is non-negotiable for military-grade communication technology. Orion PTT 2.0 incorporates E2EE from the foundation up, meaning special operations forces can confidently rely on our technology to communicate via voice, text, photos, videos, and files such as PDFs. All messages are end-to-end encrypted using AES-256 with ephemeral keys and are compliant with the FIPS 140-2 standard.
#3 3rd-party integrations bring voice into crucial special ops solutions.
Field and government technology like ATAK (Android Team Awareness/Tactical Assault Kit), geospatial systems like ESRI, and more are critical to staying situationally aware in the field. Orion PTT 2.0 uses its API layer and integrations to enable teams to give voice to these systems and access valuable data in third-party systems while heads up and on the go.
#4 Voice-first communications connect teams over any range, location, or device.
Special operations forces cannot be limited by range, geography, or device when communicating with their teams or operational command centers. Orion PTT 2.0 removes these constraints supporting its platform over any device and any IP connection, whether LTE (public or private), Wi-Fi, satellite, or mesh. This flexibility promotes instant scalability access to meet the demands of any mission on a local, regional, and global level.
Push-to-Talk 2.0 for Special Operations Forces
PTT 2.0 transforms the way frontline SOF teams communicate with a sophisticated platform that meets all their requirements, including voice, text, photos, videos, and files such as PDFs. Special operations forces can now collaborate with their teams or USSOCOM on a solution built hand in hand with the intelligence community to meet the industry’s mission-critical communications and strictest security requirements.
Stop by Carahsoft Booth #636 on the morning of Wednesday, May 18 for a demo or anytime during the conference to say hello!
