Army budget request adds $1.5B for network modernization

April 23, 2019 | Posted by: Michael Gerenser

The U.S. Army will be making large investments in network modernization over the next five years. Network modernization is one of the Army’s top priorities as they seek to enhance their ability to fight and win against near peer adversaries. To do this, the Army will be looking for hardened communications systems that can sustain critical command and control functions in the denied, intermittent, and limited communications environment.  They are also looking to reduce the size, weight and power (SWaP) of tactical gear.

REDCOM’s current communications technology is already designed with operational flexibility and redundancy in mind. In line with U.S. Army requirements, we are always working to improve our low-SWaP solutions for enhanced mobility and survivability.
