Circuit Actions Coordinator

The U.S. Government Department of Defense (DoD) Gateway at Wahiawa, Hawaii utilizes the STEP System and DoD Teleport capability enhancements to provide additional SATCOM systems coverage and robust GIG/DIS services. Accesses to DISN services are via multi-media Radio Frequency (RF) connections. This multi-media RF includes existing SATCOM systems (i.e., Super High Frequency (SHF) (DSCS X-Band), UHF, and EHF), future Ka, as well as commercial SHF Wideband systems in the C and Ku bands. The Gateway consists of the Service Delivery Node (SDN) providing connections to the Defense Switched Network (DSN), DISN Video Services (DVS), Defense Red Switched Network (DRSN), and the Joint Worldwide Intelligence Communications System (JWICS). Unclassified but Sensitive Internet Protocol Router Network (NIPRNET) and Secret Internet Protocol Router Network (SIPRNET) services are provided via the ITSDN.

In addition to providing tactical and strategic forces with a point of entrance into the DoDIN and legacy tactical C4I services with reliable high-throughput telecommunications, the site supports all frequency spectrums to the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) Western Hemisphere, Joint Chiefs of Staff, Chief of Naval Operations, U.S. Pacific Command, Commander U.S, Pacific Fleet, Commander Seventh Fleet, Commander Marine Forces Pacific, Commander Pacific Air Forces, Special Operations Command, National Security Agency, Missile Defense Agency (MDA), and Australian Defense Forces. DoD Gateway Wahiawa provides direct support Joint Communication Control Centers (JCCC) of deployed Joint Task forces (JTF) or Combined/Coalition task forces (CTF) providing satellite integration capabilities to connect tactical terminals intra/inter theater to other deployed terminals, for a seamless interoperability with the DoDIN.

Additionally, the Mobile User Objective System (MUOS) program provides the war-fighter with 3G cellular capabilities in the field. There are four MUOS sites {NCTAMS PAC Wahiawa, Hawaii; Geraldton, Australia; Niscemi, Italy; & Northwest, Virginia} which consist of Ground Transport, Ground Infrastructure, Network Management, and Satellite Control Systems.
