Abstract:

The Joint Tactical Radio System Handheld, Manpack, and Small Form Fit JTRS HMS program is an Acquisition Category ACAT ID program developing the materiel solution to provide Software Communications Architecture SCA-compliant radios to warfighters. The JTRS HMS program meets the radio requirements for soldiers and small platforms such as missiles and ground sensors. JTRS HMS is structured as a single program of record with two phases. Phase 1 developed Small Form Fit SFF SFF-A 1- and 2-Channel, SFF-D and ANPRC-154 Rifleman Radio for use in a sensitive but unclassified environment. Phase 2 will develop the 2-Channel Manpack and SFF-B for use in a classified environment. JTRS HMS radios are designed to host SCA-compliant software waveforms and applications. Phase 1 radios will host the Soldier Radio Waveform SRW. Phase 2 will host the SRW, Ultra High Frequency Satellite Communications Military, Single Channel Ground to Air Radio System, and Mobile User Objective System waveforms. JTRS HMS will provide new networking capability to the individual Soldiers, Marines, Sailors and Airmen and also continue to provide legacy radio interoperability. JTRS HMS will support the Net Centric Transport goal of traffic convergence on a single Internet Protocol internetwork by running JTRS networking services with the SRW. JTRS HMS provides the warfighter with a software reprogrammable, networkable multi-mode system of systems capable of simultaneous voice, data and video communications. The program encompasses specific requirements to support the Army, Navy, U.S. Marine Corps, Air Force and the Special Operations Command communication needs.
