The U.S. Army is conducting a current rethinking its strategy of development of telecommunications technology on the battlefield and has planned this year to conduct a series of exercises and tests that will compare different technologies, programs and the standards of equipment. Large-scale tests will assist to find the kind of army of the future and find a more suitable technological solutions and ideas.
First teaching plan to June — July this year at a military firing range White Sands. Within 6 weeks during the baseline test embedded networking plan to number of particularly fundamental network programs that are associated with distribution systems and their collection.
Will first be tested different tactical communications devices JTRS: mobiles, which are installed in cars and armored vehicles,
private terminals, which are worn in the knapsack.
The teachings will also include several small scale tests MSS systems and JCR (Modern Soldier System and the Joint Capability Release), which are part of the next generation of advanced battle management systems (FBCB2).
During the first 4 weeks of planned to test equipment. And in the fifth and second week of planned tactical maneuvers as a team. For a complete picture of each battalion of the brigade will have different sets of equipment that will allow the military to assess the comparability and to compare the ability of devices from different manufacturers.
At the October 2011 scheduled for inclusive teaching Brigade Combat Team (BCT-IE), in which each soldier will work in the criteria for the communication of the battlefield. During these military exercises planned to make a decision about the maturity of new technologies and the need to adopting the U.S. Army.
The result will be all-encompassing testing the network in December 2012. Then it will be clear what specific functionality of the South American army will receive in subsequent years.
Much of the military programs that are scheduled to test, focused initially on providing the soldier maximum disk imaging on the current tactical situation and the definition of tactical advantage from the situation.
JTRS, built on the basis of individual radio stations, allows to realize the potential of a very fighter, giving opportunity him to collect the largest amount of disk imaging on the current tactical situation. Ground forces, equipment functional radio stations, in addition receive opportunity management and communication with unmanned platforms (high-precision missiles, automatic ground sensors, intellectual ammunition tool that will be used outside the specific scope). Military units and individual Marines will become universal, more resilient and deadly. To a large extent minimized the tasks that have been associated with the quality of communication in the bad old town or the mountains where there is no smooth visibility between the military and a hell of a lack of data about the current tactical situation.
According disk imaging media, within JTRS HMS being developed 3 types of radio stations: personal ("hand"), portable and small (for terrestrial systems and UAVs).
Personal radio station is a single-channel and will use two types of kriptoshifrovaniya. It will provide infantry Brigade Combat Team (BCT).
The portable radio station is a more powerful version of the two-channel personalized and provide ample capacity will allow virtually all types of communications, including satellite. In 2010, the South American army conducted exercises with the introduction of portable terminals 60 JTRS, drones Shadow, Black Hawk helicopters, and Apache. The soldiers gave a positive assessment of its low power consumption and a communication range of up to 30 km without relay. The vast majority of fighter previously been familiar with network technologies such a plan and an idea of the usual method of communication "radio station, radio station." Along with that, JTRS offers a completely different architecture, where virtually every terminal is a typical gateway which can enter into the communication network and get all of her abilities.
