Enhanced WIN-T Increment 2 Capabilities Begin Testing
More Transportable, Expeditionary TCN-L/NOSC-L Begin Performance and Safety Evaluations

October 3, 2016 - TAUNTON, Mass. – General Dynamics Mission Systems announced today that new and improved versions of two key Warfighter Information Network-Tactical (WIN-T) Increment 2 capabilities have begun the test and evaluation process at U.S. Army installations across the country.

Integrated on HMMWVs instead of five-ton FMTVs, both the Tactical Communications Node-Lite (TCN-L) and the Network Operations and Security Center-Lite (NOSC-L) feature a greatly reduced footprint and improved transportability for expeditionary operations (C-130 roll-on/roll off and CH-47 sling loadable). The TCN-L and NOSC-L provide the same networking and network management capability to command posts while reducing the complexity to install, operate and maintain the Army’s mobile tactical communications network.

“These capabilities provide the Army a more agile network capability and greater expeditionary reach, ” said Bill Weiss, vice president and general manager of… Read More»
