General Dynamics receives new WIN-T Inc 2 order

4th October 2013 - 14:38 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


General Dynamics has been issued a $111 million follow-on order for the Warfighter Information Network-Tactical (WIN-T) Increment 2 (Inc 2) by the US Army. The additional network nodes will furnish brigade combat teams and division headquarters units and help fulfil current and future capability sets.

WIN-T Inc 2 was deployed in its first combat patrol in Afghanistan this past summer, where it successfully provided on-the-move capability between several network nodes. According to feedback from the field, the network provided enhanced situational awareness and significantly improved digital reach.

The first brigade-level deployment of the WIN-T Inc 2 system is currently supporting soldiers with the 4th Brigade, 10th Mountain Division (4/10) in Afghanistan. Their mission to support Afghan security forces involves communications across dispersed forces in some of the most rugged, remote locations in Afghanistan.

Chris Marzilli, president, General Dynamics C4 Systems, said: ‘WIN-T Inc 2 is the backbone of the soldier's network and this order ensures we continue the work of fielding this unprecedented system to soldiers throughout the army, reserves and national guard. Without WIN-T Inc 2, soldiers simply do not have the communications capabilities this technology provides. We look forward to working with the army to complete the production of its on-the-move network.’

WIN-T is the army's mobile battlefield network at the company level and above. It provides mission-critical voice, video and data to soldiers, on-the-move in their vehicles. Increment 1 is now fully fielded to 210 active duty, reserve and National Guard units. WIN-T Inc 2 moves with commanders and provides situational awareness and the ability to command from anywhere on the battlefield.
