PM WIN-T - Project Manager Warfighter Information Network - Tactical

WIN-T INCREMENT 3

Mission

The Warfighter Information Network-Tactical (WIN-T) Increment 3 program develops the Network Operations (NetOps) software in support of the Army's Tactical NetOps Convergence goals. NetOps provides the monitoring, control and planning tools to ensure management and defense of the voice, data and internet transport networks. The WIN-T Increment 3 program’s NetOps efforts will simplify and optimize the number of network management tools communication officers (G6s and S6s) use to manage the tactical communications network. Product Manager WIN-T Increment 3 leads the Army’s tactical NetOps convergence efforts.

Description

WIN-T Increment 3 provides the integrated Network Operations capability to allow seamless integration of tactical network planning, management, monitoring, and defense for the Signal Staff. These NetOps improvements simplify the management of the network, and increase the automation of tools and reporting. The effort will also increase visibility across the network to make communications systems easier to install, operate, maintain and defend – key to supporting a leaner and more agile future force. NetOps will be provided as a technical insertion to WIN-T Increments 1 and 2 for fielding and support.

WIN-T Increment 3 also provides waveform management and modernization with the new Highband Networking Waveform (HNW) version 3.0 for line-of-sight communications and the Network Centric Waveform (NCW) version 10.x for increased throughput capability for the beyond-line-of-sight satellite communication.
