Advanced Technology To Streamline Battlefield Communications

CHIPPEWA VALLEY, WI, December 20, 2005—Small Tree Communications, an industry leader in offering unique, state-of-the-art enterprise networking solutions for the Mac OS X, is scheduled to receive $3.4 million in Federal Defense funding as part of the FY06 Defense Appropriations Bill, to develop advanced command, control and communications technology to streamline battlefield communications for the United States Army. The request for funding was submitted by Congressman Dave Obey (WI Seventh District), the senior Democrat on the House Appropriations Committee.

“We’re grateful to Congressman Obey for providing this opportunity to our company,” stated Corky Seeber, president of Small Tree Communications. “Since our inception in 2003, we’ve been able to foster business partnerships with clientele from diverse industries, including universities, film post-production houses and government agencies. We’re eager to begin working on the development of a faster and more secure communications network protocol for the United States Army in its efforts to help protect our country.”

Small Tree received consideration for funding through the solid reputation it developed within governmental agencies during its previous work servicing the Naval Research Laboratory and Los Alamos National Laboratories. Final specifications for the project have not been released, but according to Seeber, research and development on the communications network solution is expected to continue over an 18 month period starting in fiscal year 2006.
