Army Uses General Dynamics WIN-T Network for Afghanistan Combat Patrol Mission; Chris Marzilli Comments - top government contractors - best government contracting event

General Dynamics EbizA General Dynamics information network worked to help U.S. Army brigade combat team communicate in rugged and remote locations during a patrol mission in Afghanistan.

The Warfighter Information Network-Tactical Increment 2 program is designed for on-the-move communications between troops who were deployed over the summer to serve as advisers to Afghan security forces, General Dynamics said Monday.

“With WIN-T Increment 2, commanders and staff can talk, text and collaborate with one another on a conference call or chat room in real time, even moving at 25 miles-per-hours inside of their vehicles.” said Chris Marzilli, president of General Dynamics C4 Systems.

Soldiers connect to the WIN-T network using AN/PRC-154A Rifleman and AN/PRC-155 two-channel Manpack networking radios, the company said.

The program is part of the Army’s network modernization strategy and the branch intends for WIN-T to help secure voice and data communications in the battlefield.
