Alaska, January 2023 – Cornet Technology and Omni Response successfully supported a recent warfighter exercise last month at a remote Alaska location using Cornet’s small manpackable 4G / 5G private cellular solution and Omni’s command and control (C2) voice, video, data and position location information (PLI) services on the manpack’s embedded server. Prior to the teams deployment, the Cornet and Omni team provided training on installation, operation, and maintenance of the manpack, as well as operation of the C2 services and applications on the wireless devices.
As a result of our pre-deployment efforts, our customer was able to successfully deploy the 4G / 5G LTE solution with embedded C2 services with little to no assistance from Cornet or Omni. The exercise allowed the customer to seamlessly integrate our joint solution into their deployable architecture and federate their
C2 services to the cloud over a Very Small Aperture Terminal (VSAT) backhaul to their headquarters location.
Cornet Technology, Inc., headquartered in Springfield, VA, is a leading provider of tactical and secure communications to the aerospace and defense industry, first responders, and militaries around the world.

Duette Flight Range, Duette, FL, 25 May – Cornet Technology, along with partners Verizon and OmniResponse, participated in a Field Training Exercise conducted by US Special Operations Command (SOCOM) Special Operations Forces Acquisition, Technology and Logistics Program Executive Office – Fixed Wing (PEO-FW) at its Duette Flight Range in Duette, FL on May 24 and 25.
The Exercise showcased a “Verizon Solution” of C2, ATAK and Situational Awareness capabilities on a Private LTE Network in a compromised, or, limited-to-no-connectivity environment (RF Denied Environment). The Exercise highlighted the unique architecture of a drone-mounted, private LTE Network with full communication and telemetry capabilities (to include asset command and control) backhauled via a 4G / 5G network to the Verizon LTE Network. The goal of the Demonstration was to provide for complete sensory telemetry capability in a “cellular bubble” of more that 10km and to transmit vital personnel, vehicle and asset data to an overarching Hybrid C2 Integration and Management Platform (both static and mobile) for command and control, situational awareness with full ATAK compatibility. Cornet Technology provided the Manpack picocell.
The demonstration was well received by SOCOM PEO-FW technical personnel, which noted that the capability is a “must have” technology for the US Warfighter and revealed that they will work to deploy the 4G / 5G Airborne C2 Platform in aircraft as soon as practical.
