Lockheed Martin Demonstrates First Tactical Radio Network for US Navy

Lockheed Martin performed its first Joint Tactical Radio network demonstration for the U.S. Navy. The firm transmitted Internet-Protocol enabled data and video communications using a Joint Tactical Pre-Engineering Development model radio.

The demonstration verified the technical maturity of the Airborne & Maritime/Fixed Station Joint Tactical Radio System network. The AMF JTRS was designed to enable airmen, sailors, marines and soldiers to share secure, voice, data and video communications in real-time.

“By extending wired shipboard and shore networks via JTRS wireless capability, U.S. Naval Communications will be able to dynamically route voice, data, imagery and video between any type of platform-ship, aircraft or fixed station-to meet their mission needs,“ said Mark Norris, vice president for joint tactical network solutions with Lockheed Martin's IS&GS-Defense.

Lockheed Martin's AMF JTRS team includes BAE Systems, General Dynamics, Northrop Grumman and Raytheon. The team integrated an AMF Pre-EDM Joint Tactical Radio with the Shipboard Automated Digital Network System, which is the backbone of the Navy's Joint Maritime Communications System.
