The Soldier’s Network
Mission-Critical Voice & Data Communications for the Warfighter
The Soldier’s Network delivers tactical voice and data communications to soldiers anywhere on the battlefield. Built by General Dynamics Mission Systems, the Soldier’s Network provides that backbone to the Army’s larger tactical network which allows commanders to conduct mission command on-the-move and Soldiers on the ground to have their voices heard, their texts received and their location displayed on a map.
The Soldier’s Network is built on mission-critical technology developed by General Dynamics and hundreds of suppliers for the Warfighter Information Network – Tactical (WIN-T) program, the Army’s mobile communications backbone for Soldiers in combat vehicles and in command posts, and networking radios for troops on the ground (see diagram below).
An essential utility for today’s expeditionary Army, Warfighter Information Network-Tactical (WIN-T) provides mission-critical communications which helps soldiers accomplish their missions anywhere in the world. As the U.S. Army’s tactical network backbone, WIN-T delivers voice and data services to Soldiers in combat vehicles and command posts without the need for fixed infrastructure.
Putting the power of the network in the hands of soldiers on the ground, General Dynamics’ Manpack and Rifleman radios extend voice and data communications to the tactical edge. Working together to form ad-hoc networks without fixed infrastructure, and connected to the WIN-T network and Mobile User Objective System (MUOS) satellite system, the Manpack and Rifleman Radios enable apps and data service for individual soldiers like never before.
Mission Command Apps
Enabled by the Soldier’s Network, General Dynamics’ Mission Command Applications provide the situational awareness and real-time information commanders need to make effective decisions and they provide the warfighter with the information necessary to complete their mission.
