Abstract:

Information for Global Reach IFGR system enables the exchange of secure, critical information among Air Force Decision makers, and combat forces. IFGR consists of selected Commercial off the shelf COTS and Government off the shelf GOTS software components, integrated to provide an extension of the Global Information Grid to mobile users. Through the integration of commercial and Department of Defense DoD wireless communication assets, IFGR provides a set of services much like an Internet Service provider to deployed and deploying forces. Using intelligence gained from the data flow and communications link characteristics, IFGR establishes, and seamlessly maintains, a virtual network among highly mobile and fixed nodes. IFGRs unique gateway engine obviates the users need to know what communication device is sending or receiving their information, or what communications links they are using. IFGR is standards-based, enabling users and their applications to plug in to IFGR and have a seamless connection to the Internet.
