Enable Enhanced Battlefield Situational Awareness Down to the Individual Warfighter

Curtiss-Wright tactical data links and integrated network management solutions for the warfighter are the foundation of secure and interoperable communication systems. Our PacStar tactical networking solutions combine equipment and software to deliver turnkey enhanced battlefield situational awareness (SA). Our tactical data link (TDL) technology makes communication across different tactical networks using different protocols simple for seamless battlefield integration.

Tactical Warfighter Communications Solutions

Tactical warfighters today need lightweight, compact, mission-critical communications systems that support the transition from a platform-centric force to a network-centric force. Decision superiority is key to military success. Timely decision-making requires advanced military communications technologies to quickly deliver data from field locations. The military needs low-cost, flexible solutions without increasing its dependence on centralized communications networks.

We are a world-class leader in delivering solutions that allow military operating and training units, government testing organizations, and prime defense contractors to quickly achieve better connectivity and capability at the tactical edge. By using these integrated solutions, warfighters in the air, on the sea, and on the ground can now exchange real-time tactical information and share a common operating picture for improved operational coordination, situation awareness, and mission effectiveness.

Our solutions include commercial off-the-shelf (COTS)-based rugged, small form factor communications systems and patented PacStar IQ-Core Software for integrated network communications management, and are core components of secure command, control, and communications systems, particularly in remote or infrastructure starved areas.

Integrated Tactical Data Links Made Simple

Current tactical data links are typically comprised of a network of participants using different radios and computer systems attempting to exchange information with each other using a multitude of different, non-interoperable protocols and messaging systems. Our tactical communications link technology is a force-multiplier that translates each tactical protocol/language, enabling different data links to communicate clearly and efficiently seamlessly. Beyond the technology is the need for cost-effective training that creates a realistic battlefield simulation to train users. Our TCG GTS® ground tactical data link system is an operational, tactical data link communications station with comprehensive simulation and training capabilities. Learn how this realistic training environment accelerates technology adoption.

Secure Wireless Solutions for Tactical, Expeditionary, and Deployable Communications

The National Security Agency (NSA) Commercial Solutions for Classified (CSfC) program protects classified data by leveraging a two-layered approach using commercial security components. Compared to a traditional government-off-the-shelf (GOTS) Type 1 approach, a CSfC solution can be fielded in months instead of years and for a fraction of the investment.

Intelligent Sensor Data Analytics at the Tactical Edge

Whether centralized or at the edge, one of the biggest military needs existing today is the imperative for a common operating picture (COP) with support for pattern of life (POL) analysis across all relevant data sets.
