Dugway Proving Grounds, Utah (June 20, 2022) – Collins
Aerospace demonstrated a Unified Network that achieved the range and scale
required to support the Army modernization and JADC2 initiatives for joint and
coalition forces. The demonstration was conducted as part of the recent
Experimental Demonstration Gateway Exercise 2022 (EDGE 22) excursion at the
Dugway Proving Grounds in Utah.
The demonstration created a Unified Command and Control Network leveraging
ground and air platforms to connect multiple brigade combat teams and division
assets separated by up to 365 kilometers (226 miles) in rugged terrain. An
advanced tactical data link, mesh network and intelligent gateways facilitated
the integrated network.
The intelligent gateway included a cross-domain solution that enabled
multiple levels of security across the networks, a capability providing division
Commanders and coalition partners access to a common operational picture to
enhance situational awareness and make informed split-second decisions.
Intelligent gateways bridge networks together, bypassing limitations in legacy
networks and scaling command and control without requiring costly new equipment
or upgrades across the Army Enterprise.
“The warfighter's most strategic asset is a Unified Network as it provides
actionable data anywhere within the multi-domain battlespace and brings together
commanders in real time to coordinate mission operations,” said Elaine Bitonti,
vice president, JADC2 Demonstration and Experimentation for Collins Aerospace.
“This enhanced situational awareness – through securely bridging disparate
networks – shortens the decision-making cycle required to determine the best
course of action.”
