Abstract:

The Future Digital Radio will operate as a system of the Command and Control C2 Mission Area to provide a means for transport of Information Exchange Requirements IERs between users throughout the battlefield. Various configurations of FDR user radios will support a wide variety of users in networks that will range from low capacity voice or data nets to high capacity video links or Wide Area Networks WANs covering large geographic areas. The FDR system shall be comprised of a family of user owned and operated radios that will share interchangeable components to the lowest practical hardware and software levels in order to simplify configuration management and support of the system. Radios will be developed for hand-held, man-pack, surface vehicle, and air platform installations. The FDR Open architecture design using standard commercial and military protocols will facilitate efficient and cost effective changes to system hardware and software as new technology mandates displacement of older legacy equipment and operational methods. The FDR system will be introduced in three Blocks that will be flexible enough to maintain a high degree of force readiness during the transition and adjust to unanticipated advances in technology while maintaining focus on the objective FDR system. All FDR configurations will have embedded capability for their own position location and will be configurable andor programmable to operate in the FDR D2 WAN.
