Defense & Intelligence

Lightware has a deep understanding of the unique and specialized needs of AV applications for governmental and public environments. As such, the secure, ‘data diode class’ versions of our products enable defense and intelligence organizations to safely deploy our high-fidelity solutions within highly classified environments in line with national and international Information Assurance requirements.
Deployed to challenging and often highly-classified environments, Lightware is proud to support mission-critical systems across land, air and sea domains, and has been delivering trusted AV solutions for defense and intelligence clients around the world for many years.

Data Diode Technology

A data diode is a physical network device enforcing data to travel only in one direction to guarantee information security. As a result of its hardware design, a data diode separates the source (Transmitter - TX) and sink (Receiver - RX) on a physical level of a classified network, creating a non-routable, one-way data transfer between two endpoints. Such network design cannot be manipulated or compromised – a secure and convenient way to prevent even the smallest amount of data leak from a network’s secure zone.

They are most commonly found in high security environments such as nuclear power plants, electric power generation or defense facilities where connections between two or more networks are on different security levels, especially if those with lower levels also have access to the open Internet.

Unparalleled Reliability in Every Operation

Defense & Intelligence applications require extreme levels of security and reliability, and due to the nature of their network infrastructure, different endpoints have various classification levels. Traditionally, commercially focused audio-visual and IT systems are not designed for these high-security requirements of the defense and intelligence markets.

Likewise, our MX modular matrix range is well-known for its durability, serving in numerous military installations around the world.


Full redundancy

We understand that for C2 & C4ISR environments flaws in image or sound quality, and signal latency are entirely unacceptable, hence our technology has been designed from the outset to be robust and resilient with full redundancy, including a range of features that makes them particularly suitable for mission-critical operations.


Robust and resilient

From HQ-based Command & Control Centers to highly mobile combat operations, Lightware provides solutions that have been built to withstand the challenges posed by harsh environments of all kind.


High signal fidelity

Lightware provides the highest signal fidelity, combined with the unparalleled versatility of multilayer switching, extreme redundancy, and hot-swappable interface cards in the 25G Hybrid modular matrix system, a device that is particularly popular among those designing and deploying command & control centres.

The Police HQ Operations Center in Prague


The operations center of the Police Presidium has undergone great changes this year: extensive reconstruction, including moving and modernizing the IT and AV technology. The newly opened premises in the Police Presidium building in Holešovice are for operational commissioned officers based in Olšanské Street.
