Mid-tier Networking Vehicular Radios

Description

The Mid-tier Networking Vehicular Radio (MNVR) provides the terrestrial backbone for the Army’s tactical network enabling the extension of mission command through seamless integration of the upper and lower tiers, for a wide variety of Army tactical vehicles to meet the Army’s requirement for the Mid-tier Wideband Networking capability.

The MNVR system provides an extension of data services from the upper tier (brigade and battalion) to the lower tier (company and platoon) of the tactical network. The advanced networking waveforms provide rapid distribution of data and imagery with increased information assurance protection and automatic routing across complex terrain. The MNVR capability consists of modular radios capable of running software-defined waveforms, which operate as nodes in a network to ensure secure wireless communication and networking services for mobile and stationary forces. This supports mission command, sensor-to-shooter, sustainment and survivability applications through the full range of military operations on tactical platforms.

Capabilities

  • High bandwidth communications between Battalion and Company levels
  • Unit Task Reorganization (UTR) – MNVR is the first radio to field enterprise Over The Air Management (eOTAM)
  • Digital Fires– MNVR is the only radio with Wideband Networking Waveform (WNW) needed to operationalize Digital Fires
  • Aerial – Ground High BW Communications (Future) – Enabled by MNVR’s WNW

Additional Capabilities

  • MNVR SRW Voice - Combat Net Radio (CNR) and Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP)
  • MNVR’s new Internet Protocol (IP) based networking waveforms offer increased data throughput through self-forming, self-healing and managed communication networks.
  • Dynamic, scalable, on-the-move (OTM) network architecture, connecting the Soldier to the mission command network; enhances capability to exchange voice and data simultaneously and faster than current systems.
  • Advanced network waveforms provide rapid distribution of data and imagery with increased information assurance protection and automatic routing across complex terrain.
