Project Manager (PM) Tactical Network (formerly known as PM Warfighter Information Network-Tactical) delivers a unified tactical network, enabling cohesive mission command at every stage of the joint operational spectrum -- from home station to early entry, to the furthest edge of the battlefield. The program’s scalable suite of integrated tactical network communication and network/cyber management capabilities support today’s complex joint, coalition and civil missions worldwide. The program office provides an expeditionary, modular “tool kit” of unified satellite and radio network transport capabilities to enable uninterrupted mission command and secure reliable voice, video and data communications.
Leveraging both satellite and line-of-sight capabilities for optimum efficiency, effectiveness and operational flexibility, the tactical network enables mission command at any location, from traditional command posts, to network-equipped vehicles crossing the battlefield, even from the belly of C17 aircraft en route to an objective. Connected to the tactical network, Soldiers at every echelon are continually backed by the strength and expertise of the entire force and armed with the mission command capabilities needed to defeat increasingly capable adversaries in today’s complex world.
PM Tactical Network continues to improve the Army’s tactical network, enhancing the way the network is managed, operated and defended across all echelons and domains. To meet the Army’s strategic priorities for readiness, responsiveness and regional engagement, ongoing capability advancements in the tactical network programs are holistically improving simplicity, mobility, modularity and agility. The Army’s continually evolving suite of expeditionary network transport equipment enables commanders to see first and act first, while increasing speed of maneuver and operational flexibility.
Vision: ONE NETWORK
The PM Tactical Network Team develops, fields and supports ONE TACTICAL NETWORK. It provides an integrated, interoperable single network that is modular and flexible in design, supportable, trusted by the user and presents a common user experience.
The program’s advanced communications capabilities enable scalable expeditionary networking and directly support the Army’s goal for uninterrupted cohesive mission command at every stage of the joint operational spectrum.
