Mission of Team:

The Army’s SIPRMod program is a multi-year effort to modernize the Secret Internet Protocol Router (SIPRNet) network, which is used by the Army and other US government agencies to transmit classified information. The program aims to improve the SIPRNet network’s performance, security, and reliability, and to make it more adaptable to changing mission requirements.

The SIPRMod program is a critical effort to modernize the Army’s classified communications infrastructure. The new SIPRNet architecture will provide the Army with a more secure and reliable network to support its mission in the digital age.

In addition to the above, the SIPRMod program is also focused on the following objectives:

  • Improve SIPR multi-site, mobility, wireless, and data-at-rest capabilities.
  • Implement a SIPR-consolidated security suite.

The SIPRMod program is a major undertaking, but it is essential to ensuring that the Army has a secure and reliable classified communications network in the years to come.
