Product Manager Mission Network delivers the Core Tactical Network Transport equipment that supports the Army’s upper tactical internet. This equipment provides mission command and the full range of voice, video, and data communications Soldiers and commanders need to be successful in today’s missions. Integrated on a variety of tactical vehicles to best suite unit requirements, these capabilities leverage robust commercial and military satellite communications (SATCOM) and high-capacity line-of-sight capability under a holistic transport design and network management, both at-the-halt and on-the-move, keeping highly mobile and dispersed forces connected to one another and to the Army’s global information network.
As part of the Army’s network modernization strategy, PdM Mission Network is improving Core Tactical Network Transport equipment, increasing capability, security, network management, maneuverability and operational flexibility, while balancing these new capabilities against the existing network design to ensure the entire tactical network is interoperable and cyber resilient. The Army is holistically modernizing and expanding capability, not only across Core Tactical Network Transport equipment, but where applicable, across the entire tactical network program portfolio. These improvements are more than just size, weight and power (SWaP) reductions, they reduce system complexity and increase reliability to make the systems easier to operate, train maintain, while providing the additional capability needed to help the Army retain overmatch against peer and near peer threats.
Product Manager Mission Network manages the at-the-halt and on-the-move CORE Tactical Network Transport equipment to effectively support the requirements of different missions, units and locations.
