US Army to Evaluate Tactical Routers for Combat Vehicles

The U.S. Army, through the System of Systems Integration (SoSI) Directorate, plans to evaluate the use of tactical routers on vehicles. Such routers will enable multiple users and systems on board and nearby combat vehicles to access vehicular networks and distributed IP based services while maintaining high level of security.

CS-13 Introduces New Networking Capabilities

Two of the first five prototypes undergoing installation and testing at the Prototype Integration Facility at the U.S. Army Tank Automotive Research, Development and Engineering Center. These "super configuration" M-ATVsare equipped with Capability Set 13 (CS 13) assets. CS 13 is the first integrated group of networked technologies - radios, sensors and associated equipment and software - that will deliver an integrated voice and data capability throughout the entire Brigade Combat Team formation, from the brigade commander to the dismounted soldier.
In October 2012 the US Army embarked on an ambitious upgrade of its tactical command and control system, introducing new radios, networking and satellite communications systems to modernize the command and control layers of its infantry brigade combat teams. The light formations - Infantry, airborne, airmobile and mountain brigades will be equipped first and the last to roll in will be the armored brigades, currently scheduled to receive the equipment in 2019.

WIN-T – The Army’s Tactical Backbone

WIN-T Increment 2 gear tested on an M-ATV during the Network Integration Evaluation exercise, 2011.
Warfighter Information Network-Tactical (WIN-T) and its latest incremental upgrade known as Increment 2 (WIN-T Inc 2) are a central part of CS-13. It will also provide all Army units a common networking baseline layer, enabling full connectivity between units utilizing new generation systems (JTRS, AWN2, etc) and those that still rely on legacy systems (SINCGARS etc), allowing each unit to use its equipment with utmost efficiency and capacity.

The Army awarded General Dynamics C4 Systems a $346 million delivery order to procure the WIN-T Inc 2 network for additional Brigade Combat Teams and Division Headquarters units. The system completed its Initial Operational Test and Evaluation (IOT&E) during the Army's Network Integration Evaluation 12.2 this summer.
