General Dynamics completed a demonstration of its wireless broadband network at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst in August to evaluate how the system handles large data transmissions between ground troops and the command center.

During the demo, soldiers sent pictures from their smartphones to leaders on the simulated control hub using the 4G LTE solution with the company’s eNodeBlue platform as base station, General Dynamics said Monday.

Chris Marzilli, president of General Dynamics C4 Systems, said the technology is already used in public safety networks in two states and could provide Army personnel a “significant capability leap” for connectivity and interoperablity options.

The company held the demonstration in collaboration with the Communications-Electronics Center of the Research, Development and Engineering Command.
