Our history

  • Designed, integrated and installed a high speed data network utilized by the US Air Force for connecting nodes to the Cray II supercomputer. This network allows scientists at the Department of Energy to access the computer from various locations to conduct experiments requiring high-speed calculations.

    Acquisition of United States Department of Defense network from GTE Government Systems. This network consists of over 40 large satellite earth stations in the United States with active contracts into the 21st century. The department of defense cleared SCSI as an approved purchaser of the network and associated contracts.

  • Awarded MEVA PROJECT by the ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization - United Nation Chartered), which provides communication between Air Traffic Control Facilities throughout North and South America. The MEVA project ensured passenger safety through communications services delivered by SCSI. SCSI was chosen as the supplier by ICAO after a thorough assessment of the SCSI SCPC DAMA platform. SCSI received this award after consideration of the proposals from other worldwide telecommunications suppliers.
