Exelis Demonstrates Networking Technology Enhancements to Single Channel Ground and Airborne Radio System

During the recent Army Expeditionary Warrior Experiment (AEWE) demonstration at Fort Benning, Georgia, Exelis emonstrated a network deployment based on new capability enhancements to the Single Channel Ground and Airborne Radio System (SINCGARS). The new technology enhancements provide greater networking capability for SINCGARS tactical radios -- the most widely fielded radio system in the U.S. Army -- with more than 580,000 delivered to date. Some of the demonstrated enhancements were the Embedded Tactical Data Router (ETDR), C4i Switchplus, SideHat® and the latest release of software for the SINCGARS radio platform. As part of the SINCGARS Software Version 9 release, users now have access to SINCGARS – Universal Network Situational Awareness. This software update provides position location information for every radio and beacon-equipped platform or soldier on the battlefield. During the AEWE, the capability was integrated with both Joint Battle Command-Platform and Nett Warrior computers resulting in a common operating picture at the company and platoon levels. Additionally, the ETDR that was demonstrated at AEWE provides data routing among not only different radios, but also among different waveforms. The ETDR was also integrated into the existing SINCGARS footprint. The Switchplus Combat Net Radio Gateway was also demonstrated giving the command centers the ability to cross band and monitor different radios and networks from a remote location. This capability provides mission essential command and control while enabling cross banding between different waveforms, frequencies, and disparate radio/communication systems within law enforcement, DoD, first responders and other agencies.
