US Stryker Brigades get WIN-T Increment 2
The US Army has been fielding General Dynamics' Warfighter Information Network – Tactical (WIN-T) Increment 2 to selected Stryker Brigade combat teams, the company announced on 3 March.
The 2nd Stryker Brigade combat team, 2nd infantry division, and 1st Stryker Brigade, 1st armoured division, have received the WIN-T Increment 2. The mobile command and control system has also been fielded to 12 infantry brigade combat teams and four division headquarters.
Chris Marzilli, president, General Dynamics Mission Systems, said: 'Fielding WIN-T Increment 2 to army Stryker Brigades closes the communications gap between fast moving SBCTs and boots on the ground soldiers.'
He added: 'The highly mobile and operationally simplified Increment 2 allows soldiers to quickly and simultaneously address multiple missions in any environment, across the mission field or between continents.'
The WIN-T is the army's mobile command and control system that connects and protects voice and data communications to support its operations worldwide.
