Spectranetix delivered a prototype ComScan® multi-mission EW/SIGINT/COMMS/PNT system providing tactical communications network capability in line with U.S. Army’s Capability Set 23 (CS23) objective of modernizing tactical network capacity, resiliency, and convergence.

“Spectranetix is at the forefront of the development and driving the adoption of U.S. Army CMOSS and The Open Group SOSA™ aligned capabilities by our customers,” said Bret Banfield, VP GM of Spectranetix. “This successful TEM4 CMOSS TSM demonstration furthers the Army’s objective of having a multi-mission converged capability on mounted vehicles.”

The ComScan® system delivered under this program is CMOSS and SOSA™ aligned and is populated with the Precision Navigation and Timing (PNT) plug-in card and SX-610 Mobile Ad-hoc Networking (MANET) CMOSS Radio Card to enable tactical communications via the TrellisWare® TSM™ MANET waveform. The TSM™ waveform provides transport of voice, data, and position information over a wide range of frequencies in the UHF/L/S bands without requiring additional infrastructure. TrellisWare’s TSM™ waveform will be fielded as the advanced networking waveform for the ITN Capability Set 21 covering the Handheld, Manpack, and Small Form Factor (HMS) Program of Record (PoR) platforms.

The Phase 2 test was conducted at U.S. Army Support Activity, Fort Dix where the CMOSS ComScan® system was integrated into the Stryker platform and demonstrated full interoperability with existing hand-held Army Leader radios utilizing TSM-6 waveform. The Phase 1 test was conducted at the U.S. Army’s Open Innovation Lab, APG. Additional demonstrations will be performed at the Army’s NetModX (CGA, Fort Dix, New Jersey; May-June 2021) and PNTAX (White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico; October-November 2021) events.

“This program highlights Spectranetix commitment to bring CMOSS based Tactical Communication capabilities to market and serve the needs of tactical radio and network communications systems in one converged system that is both adaptable and scalable to mission and platform needs,” said Ranjeet Jhutti, Sr. Technical Program Manager (TacCom) at Spectranetix.
