Tactical Targeting Network Technology Builds on Unit Strength

Recommended Posts


[left]ROME, New York -- The U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) and Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) are rapidly fielding sophisticated airborne wireless networking solutions, known as Tactical Targeting Network Technology (TTNT) & tactical QUINT Networking Technology (QNT), as part of the ISR-Net Quick Reaction Capability (QRC) in response to an urgent operational need to provide dismounted soldiers with ISR products and network application support.

The ISR-Net QRC will deliver near-term, line-of-sight (LOS), Internet Protocol (IP) networking capabilities to minimize identified gaps in the theater communications architecture. ISR-Net links various types of radio networking equipment into a cohesive communications network. By combining a mixture of units together, a network is formed using the strengths of the different units. The ISR Net provides mesh networking capabilities between and across ground and air assets.

The system relies on the TTNT waveform to set up and maintain the airborne ad hoc network and manage network resources. QNT adds on demand sockets and provides a robust and affordable miniature, multi‐band modular capability to close the seams between tactical nodes. Current nodes are the Persistent Threat Detection System (PTDS) and Persistent Ground Surveillance System (PGSS) aerostats, various towers, as well as several ground vehicles.

Tactical Targeting Network Technology airborne network wireless technology provides tactical targeting network capabilities for aircraft with low latency, high throughput, ad hoc network security authentication, real-time on-demand capacity allocation, complete coexistence with Link 16, minimal purchase cost/life cycle cost/installation, and network planning, monitoring, and management tools.

Tactical QUINT Networking Technology is focused on providing improved tactical edge connectivity to allow warfighters on-demand access to tactical data (i.e. sensor video/imagery). A mesh network using the TTNT waveform provides basic airborne IP connectivity and allows for the setup of on demand 'socket' waveforms for higher rate sensor data. In addition to advanced mesh networking and socket waveform capabilities, the radio supports legacy communications interoperability[/left]
