NGC Selected to Enhance Networks for USAF

  • Open architecture communications and networking systems help define the Department of Defense's approach to enable Joint All-Domain Command and Control

Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE: NOC) will participate in Phase 1 of the Common Tactical Edge Network (CTEN) consortium, an opportunity to leverage digital engineering to build and demonstrate the backbone of a connected battlespace for the U.S. Air Force.

The CTEN Phase 1 award was announced after Northrop Grumman successfully demonstrated proven network, communications, and processing solutions to enable Joint All-Domain Command and Control (JADC2) by connecting sensors and platforms to distribute data across all domains.

Northrop Grumman connected previously incompatible links and networks using an Open Mission Systems (OMS) compliant radio, Resilient Network Controller, machine learning algorithms and gateway technology.
