Tactical Cyber and Network Operations
Product Manager Tactical Cyber and Network Operations (PdM TCNO) delivers enhanced integrated/interoperable/standardized Cyber and Network Operations (NetOps) software packages, which make it easier for Signal Soldiers (S6/G6) from the tactical edge up through Corps to plan, configure, manage, monitor, control and secure/defend their tactical network assets. Newly enhanced and simplified NetOps/Cyber tools provide a holistic view across increments and systems, and increase the automation of tools and reporting, making it easier for communications officers to manage the extensive tactical mission command network. Current and future NetOps and Cyber enhancements will be delivered as technical insertion to Warfighter Information Network-Tactical (WIN-T) at-the-halt and on-the-move network transport equipment for fielding and support.
TCNO also developed the enhanced Network Centric Waveform (NCW) version 10.x for increased throughput capability beyond-line-of-sight satellite communication and the Highband Networking Waveform (HNW) version 3.0 for line-of-sight (radio) communications. Both NCW and HNW provide significantly improved network capacity and robustness. The waveform improvements will be available for use in PM Tactical Network and other Army and Department of Defense programs.
TCNO’s network and cyber management capabilities meet and support the Army’s goals for Common Operating Environment (COE) interoperability, as well as network and NetOps convergence across the Army.
