CEDAR RAPIDS, IA. The TacNet Tactical Radio (TTR) from Rockwell Collins garnered final National Security Agency certification to Top Secret. The TTR enables Link 16 networked communications to new users.
The small form factor radio has a selectable power output with 1-, 50-, and 90-watt transmission modes; increased range, and free air convection cooling allowing it to adapt to any warfare environment. TTR provides a common operating picture through Link 16 networked communications. Applications for it include unmanned aerial vehicles, rotary wing aircraft, military vehicles, forward air controllers, and mobile and transportable ground stations as well as small maritime assets that have not had access to Link 16 capability in the past.
Link 16 also integrates command and control data including the sharing of targeting and situational awareness data among joint and coalition partners.
TTR has a volume of less than 185 cubic inches and weighs less than 10 pounds. For more information, visit http://www.rockwellcollins.com/ttr.
