US: The US Army's Brigade Modernisation Command has completed field testing of the warfighter information network-tactical (WIN-T) communication system at Fort Bliss, Texas, US. WIN-T Inc 2 is a network of computers and radios, and provides combatant commanders with situational awareness and the ability to command from anywhere on the battlefield. It is designated as the army's mobile battlefield network at company level and above, and forms part of the service's Force 2025 initiative.
The new network is expected to provide actionable information in an easy-to-process manner, enabling commanders on the ground to have greater awareness of the battlefield around them and the assets at their disposal, which will in turn make the unit more agile and flexible. Available in three increments, WIN-T provides soldiers with mission-critical voice, video and data to improve battlefield awareness.
