Fortress Technologies Launches Man-Wearable Tactical Mesh Point, Mesh Viewer Solutions

Company Enables Easy Deployment, Management, and Monitoring of On-the-Move Wireless Networks

LANSDOWNE, VA--(Marketwire - August 18, 2009) - Fortress Technologies, the leader in secure tactical wireless communications, today announced two new solutions to its product portfolio that enable the easy deployment, management, and monitoring of on-the-move wireless networks. The Fortress ES210 Tactical Mesh Point is a wireless mesh networking solution designed specifically to be worn by individuals or used for edge devices such as surveillance cameras, unmanned vehicles, and sensors. Fortress Mesh Viewer™ enables users to monitor the health and performance of an established mesh network.

"Bringing secure, net-centric wireless communications directly to warfighters, border patrol agents, or emergency responders is essential," said Janet Kumpu, President, Fortress. "The Fortress ES210 Tactical Mesh Point takes that one step further -- allowing these individuals to carry the network with them while on foot or in vehicles. Combined with Mesh Viewer, agencies now have the ability to remotely track, manage, and monitor the nodes within the mesh network from a central location."

A self-forming, self-healing mesh network device that is delivered in a small and rugged form factor with integrated GPS and FIPS 140-2 compliant security, the ES210 Tactical Mesh Point provides dependable performance in a wide range of conditions including arctic, desert, tropical, and maritime environments. Fortress Mesh Viewer provides information on the health of nodes, and connectivity between the nodes, within a mesh network. When combined with device location data, it easily integrates with popular situational awareness tools such as Google Earth to display node positions.

Fortress is showcasing these new solutions at LandWarNet on August 19, 2009 at 9:30am. Located at the Greater Ft. Lauderdale/Broward County Convention Center in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, the company is also announcing four other new products during the show.
