WIN-T: US Army’s Connection to the Global InfoGrid
November 5/15: In an attempt to downsize the Warfighter Information Network – Tactical (WIN-T) system, the Army is working to reconfigure the system – currently reserved for larger vehicles – to fit onto Humvees. The smaller nodes will allow rapidly-deploying forces to better communicate and tap into the digital battlefield on the move, with testing scheduled to take place in May 2017 and low-rate initial production of the smaller systems slated to see deliveries early next year.
As the Army’s tactical portion of the USA’s Global Information Grid (GIG) network, Warfighter Information Network-Tactical (WIN-T) is designed to help deployed forces tap into that global network and its databases, collectors, and connections to national agencies. At present, this requires multiple private networks, or outright forward deployment of representatives from the agencies in question. If it can be done at all.
WIN-T has absorbed the program formerly known as the Joint Network Node, and another 3 fielding increments will gradually add key capabilities to the system. Increment 1/ JNN is widely fielded, Increment 2 is being fielded, and R&D contracts are beginning fleshing out Increment 3.
