NATO School Oberammergau selects Raytheon's Trusted Thin Client to streamline multilevel training environments
Cross domain solution to provide students simultaneous secure network access
HERNDON, Va., Feb. 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Raytheon Trusted Computer Solutions (RTCS), a wholly owned subsidiary of Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN), today announced that its Trusted Thin Client® (TTC) cross domain solution has been selected by the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) School Oberammergau Expeditionary Intelligence Training Program (EITP) to provide full access to their classroom training networks.
NATO School Oberammergau students access course work at varying network classification levels – one level at a time. Currently, classes are required to take breaks when the course work requires access to a different classification level. During the breaks, system administrators must manually switch the network connections. When Trusted Thin Client is deployed, the students will have secure access to multiple networks at the same time, improving training efficiency and removing class disruptions.
"The NATO School Oberammergau prides itself on being cutting edge, providing the best available training to its students across the 28 members of the Alliance and our partners," said Mr. Robert Beckwith, EITP Deputy Director, NATO School Oberammergau. "Moving to the Trusted Thin Client multilevel solution will provide the most secure and seamless access to classroom networks, allowing for a more efficient and real-world experience."
NATO School Oberammergau conducts multinational military education and individual training in support of current and developing NATO operations, strategy, policy, doctrine and procedures. Annually, about 10,000 students and conference attendees visit the school. NATO School Oberammergau provides courses of instruction in six main disciplines, mostly one week in duration, in the fields of Intelligence, Cooperative Security, Joint Operations, Joint Plans, Protection and Non-Commissioned Officer Programs.
Trusted Thin Client is the cross domain access solution of choice for the "5 Eyes" community, including Australia, Canada and the United States. TTC provides a secure means to access domains at multiple classification levels (with multiple data owners) from a single thin client -- leveraging virtual desktop infrastructure back end solutions and capitalizing on space, power and administrative costs, while increasing security.
