Abstract:

Future warrior-carried communications systems have at least two needs that must be met if current plans are implemented. The first is the ability to transmit or receive voice, video, and data over an extremely wide frequency range. The hand-held version of the Joint Tactical Radio JTR scheduled for production in 2006 is designed to meet part of this need. The second is the ability to hide the identity of the radio operator from snipers who seek to disrupt command, communications, and control functions at the squad level. Integrating the antenna into the uniform provides both ultra broadband transceiving capability and the ability to make the radio operator indistinguishable from any other soldier or marine. The Combat Wear Integration COMWIN Antenna System in conjunction with the hand-held JTR fulfills both needs.
