The Mobile Hotspots program envisions air, mobile and fixed assets that provide a gigabit-per-second tactical millimeter-wave backbone network extending to the lowest-echelon warfighters.
The Network Universal Persistence (Network UP) program seeks to develop and demonstrate radio technology that maintains network reliability through periods of frequent signal degradation that may occur during operations in multiple environments. From time to time, network outages may occur and data transmission may be challenged.
PCAS seeks to fundamentally increase Close Air Support effectiveness by enabling dismounted ground agents and combat aircrews to share real-time situational awareness and weapons systems data.
Radios are used for a wide range of tasks, from the most mundane to the most critical of communications, from garage door openers to military operations. As the use of wireless technology proliferates, radios and communication devices often interfere with and disrupt other wireless devices. First responder radios need to be able to communicate reliably in such congested and contested environments and to share radio spectrum without direct coordination or spectrum preplanning.
The Tactical Undersea Network Architectures (TUNA) program seeks to develop and demonstrate novel optical-fiber-based technology options and designs to temporarily restore tactical data network connectivity in a contested environment. TUNA is currently in an initial phase that emphasizes concept and technology development in three technical areas: system design, small fiber optic cable systems, and buoy nodes.
