The Evolution of ISR: How to Leverage the Full Power of IP-based Networking

The field of Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance is undergoing a rapid evolution. Recent developments in radio systems and network technologies is making it possible to push the envelope closer than ever to the warfighter, providing the Defense Department with an opportunity to finally fulfill its long-sought vision of network-centric warfare. But all of this hinges on Internet Protocol-based networking.

Operational systems such as the Army’s Warfighter Information Network (WIN-T), the Navy’s Automated Digital Network System (ADNS) and Consolidated Afloat Network and Enterprise Services (CANES), the Air Force Theater Deployable Communications Network (TDC), and the Special Operations Forces Deployable Node (SDN) have all evolved into IP-based networks.

This webcast will explore how interconnecting these networks and extending them into the tactical domain requires evolving the set of features and capabilities available in networking components and radio systems to provide for robust, effective and dynamic tactical internetworks.

In this webcast, you will learn:

  • How the Internet Protocol is the foundation of integration
  • About current and evolving features which are needed in dynamic tactical networks
  • How the future battlefield network will benefit from radio-aware routing.
