Rockwell Collins networking waveform will give warfighters unprecedented capability

  • Rockwell Collins receives contract award for completion of the TTNT waveform development

The Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) has awarded Rockwell Collins an $18 million contract to complete the development and qualification of the Tactical Targeting Network Technology (TTNT) waveform, paving the way for the high-speed, networking waveform to be implemented across a broad range of aircraft.

“TTNT will provide warfighters with a higher throughput, low latency networking capability to meet the demands of new and evolving mission requirements.” said Bob Haag, vice president and general manager of Communication and Navigation Products for Rockwell Collins. “TTNT will provide the Department of Defense with a unique networking capability that the warfighter does not have today.”

The contract modification extends the current contract value and scope for the completion of the TTNT waveform development effort. The TTNT waveform will be made available for the Joint Tactical Networking Center’s Information Repository.

TTNT provides high data rate, long-range communication links for airborne platforms. As a complement to existing tactical data link networks, TTNT adds significant airborne network capacity while providing rapid, low latency message delivery. The minimal network planning requirements of TTNT will enable participants to enter and exit the network without extensive preplanning.

It has been used in demonstrations on more than a dozen airborne platforms, including the F-16, F-22, F-5, F/A-18, B-2, B-52, Airborne Warning and Control System (AWACS), Battlefield Airborne Communications Node (BACN) and E-2C Hawkeye.
