Army Asks For Help to Develop New Tactical Router
The U.S. Army has offered a good chance to the tech industry to show their capabilities in the field of technology. The U.S. Army has requested the tech industry to come up with some solutions to help their new combat network system by closing some of its unexpected gaps.
In a notice sent to the defense firms, the Army officials made an account of "capability gaps" that remain uncovered as a part of the army’s effort to build a new and better communications network for ground units. Army spokesman Paul Mehney said that the analysts at the Army's Training and Doctrine Command have analyzed and identified these gaps based on the data at the latest round of Network Integration Evaluation trials, held in June.
Out of these requests, the U.S. Army has asked for help to develop a "tactical" router. They are looking for such a router that can support the network and also include features for "improved operational energy" sources with the ability to power it all. The Army has also kicked off a competition for the tech industries to come up with a replacement radio. They have placed this as their top priority as they had removed its version of Joint Tactical Radio System last week.
The solutions that the industry has provided to these capability gaps will be tested by the Army during the next NIE, which is scheduled for November at the Army's White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico.
So let us see who comes up with the best tactical router to help the U.S. Army to have better communication network and cover up all the gaps to have a flawless combat network system for an impenetrable defense.
