The U.S. military is moving a software-defined networking terminal that distributes information from the Joint Tactical Radio System into full production, officials at the Joint Program Executive Office for JTRS said April 10.
The Multifunctional Information Distribution System Joint Tactical Radio System (MIDS JTRS) terminal employs the Link-16 waveform and is equipped with Link-16 enhanced throughput and Link-16 frequency remapping, the officials said. It also offers three additional channels for future waveforms as required by the warfighter.
Initial operational capability is expected soon on three different platforms, the F/A-18E/F Super Hornet, E-8C JSTARS, and RC-135 Rivet Joint, for the Navy and Air Force.
