Rockwell CollinsHigh-Speed Modem(click to view larger) Rockwell Collins in Cedar Rapids, IA received a $7 million contract from the Canadian Department of National Defence to provide ad-hoc networking equipment to the Canadian Navy. Under the contract, Rockwell Collins wil provide subnet relay controllers (SNC-2050), high-speed modems (HSM-2050) and very-high-speed modems (VHSM-3000) for the Canadian Navy’s subnet relay (SNR) program. The contract calls for the initial delivery of 83 SNR systems, along with training and support. Future contract provisions include the completion of technical studies along with a potential order of up to additional 53 SNR nodes. Work will be performed at the Rockwell Collins facility in Ottawa, Canada. The SNR technology makes it possible to establish ad-hoc IP networks used for tactical data exchanges, enhanced situational awareness and collaborative planning by the Canadian Navy and coalition navies. Features of the SNR program include built-in text chat, comprehensive signal display and a remote control graphic user interface. SNR was developed to permit the deployment of ad-hoc IP networks with inherent relay capabilities for communication between ships.
