NGC Demos JADC2 Connectivity Capabilities for Vertical Lift Platforms

Northrop Grumman Corporation recently demonstrated open architecture, in-flight connectivity capabilities for vertical lift platforms that will help the U.S. Army realize its vision for Multi-Domain Operations (MDO). The demonstration featured the company’s Mini-Communications, Navigation, and Identification (CNI) system, designed to deliver multiple networked advantages for today’s warfighters, enabling data as a strategic advantage in Joint All Domain Command and Control (JADC2) operations.

“Our Mini-Communications, Navigation, and Identification (CNI) system will help with the Army’s network modernization efforts,” said Jenna Paukstis, vice president, communications solutions, Northrop Grumman. “The Mini-CNI provides operational mission benefits including enhanced joint and coalition interoperability and networking, as well as the ability to continually deploy new capabilities at speed via Northrop Grumman’s Software Development Kit and Modular Open Systems Approach (MOSA) compliant system.”

The Mini-CNI system has the maturity needed to host a range of CNI capabilities in one, low size, weight and power (SWaP) and MOSA architecture—enabling warfighters to rapidly adapt to emerging MDO mission demands. Over the next year, Northrop Grumman’s Mini-CNI system will continue to demonstrate new capabilities, including the integration of advanced low probability of intercept/low probability of denial communications and new MOSA functions, to become an operational offering designed to meet the needs of JADC2 operations.

The Mini-CNI system is built on Northrop Grumman’s proven track record of delivering current multi-level secure next-generation connectivity across domains. It is designed to deliver multiple networked advantages for today’s warfighters, including providing resilient sensor-to-shooter links maintained through spectral awareness and frequency agility. This significantly improves data to decision timelines. In addition, the autonomous fault detection and system reconfiguration reduces crew workload, enabling warfighters to focus on other critical JADC2 mission demands.
