TrellisWare, Spectranetix Integrate TSM Waveform Into Comms Solution for US Army CS23
TrellisWare Technologies and Spectranetix have integrated the TrellisWare TSM waveform into the Spectranetix ComScan communications solution, which was developed to meet the design goals of the U.S. Army’s Capability Set 23.
Spectranetix completed the Phase 2 test under the Army Technical Exchange Meeting 4 CS23 effort by delivering a prototype ComScan multimission system, which supports electronic warfare, signals intelligence, communications and positioning, navigation and timing operations.
The ComScan system offers a tactical communications network capability as required by the CS23 objective of enhancing warfighters’ tactical network capacity, resiliency and convergence, TrellisWare said.
The test was aligned with the Army’s C5ISR Modular Open Suite of Standards Tactical Radio Waveforms and the Open Group’s Sensor Open Systems Architecture standard.
According to TrellisWare, the ComScan multi-mission system is housed in the PNT plug-in car and SX-610 mobile ad hoc networking CMOSS radio card to deliver communications using the TrellisWare TSM MANET waveform.
The TSM waveform was designed to support the transport of voice, data and position location information over a broad range of frequencies in the UHF, L and S bands without the need for additional infrastructure.
TrellisWare and Spectranetix conducted the Phase 2 test at the Army Support Activity at Fort Dix in New Jersey. During the test, ComScan was integrated into the Army’s Stryker platform and was revealed to be fully interoperable with current handheld Army Leader radios supported by the TSM-6 waveform.
The Army announced the main focus efforts of its CS23 in November 2020, including Stryker-based mounted operations. CS23 networked technologies also include those that use 4G cellular and other communication networks.
