Abstract:

Airborne MaritimeFixed Station Joint Tactical Radio System AMF JTRS products are software programmable, multi-band, multi-mode, mobile ad hoc networking radios, providing simultaneous voice, data, and video communications for Army aviation platforms. The radios will operate in networks supporting the Common Operational Picture, situational awareness, and interoperability of Mission Command systems throughout the battlefield. AMF JTRS must ensure the soldiers ability to communicate both horizontally and vertically via voice and data within all mission areas and Combat Operational Environments. AMF JTRS helps close capability gaps by extending data networking to company echelons and below, enabling network services to the platform and connecting Army Aviation platforms to Army ground and Joint air network domains. Per Milestone Decision Authority direction, the restructured AMF JTRS Program will procure radios as Non-Developmental Items NDI. AMF JTRS will provide two types of NDI radios the Small Airborne Networking Radio SANR and the Small Airborne Link 16 Terminal SALT. The fielding of SANR will follow the deployment of ground network capabilities. The SANR radio will provide Soldier Radio Waveform SRW, Single Channel Ground and Airborne Radio System and the Wideband Networking Waveform capability for Army Aviation platforms. SALT will address Joint airborne Link 16 and SRW network requirements by providing Link 16 and SRW capability to the Army Apache aircraft.
