The U.S. Army’s communications-electronics research, development and engineering center is set to perform connection testing on a cross-domain device following the completion of the development phase, SIGNAL Magazine reported Wednesday.
Rita Boland writes the Tactical Army Cross Domain Information Sharing tool works to connect the Rifleman Radio with Nett Warrior end user devices.
Rockwell Collins also worked to help develop the technology, according to the report.
Philip Payne, CERDEC TACDIS program lead, told the publication that military officials would be able to view the location of troops and receive data feeds from the lower echelons.
Users would have Android-based devices for the Nett Warrior side under the Program Executive Office Soldier’s Project Manager Soldier Warrior, SIGNAL Magazine reports.
Boland writes the Army is set to complete the transition process within the next four to six months.
