JTRS SRW Network Manager Successfully Completes FQT — Press Release

JTRS SRW Network Manager Successfully Completes FQT

San Diego – The Joint Program Executive Office (JPEO) for the Joint Tactical Radio System (JTRS) Network Enterprise Domain (NED) announces the successful completion of the Formal Qualification Test (FQT) of the Soldier Radio Waveform Network Manager (SRWNM) with multiple JTRS radios on January 28, 2011. Completion of the SRWNM FQT is a significant milestone in delivering an enterprise-wide network planning and management capability for JTRS radios.

SRWNM enables planning of heterogeneous SRW networks consisting of SRW-capable radios from multiple vendors, generating the presets for the radios in the plan, downloading the presets to the planned radio nodes, and then monitoring the planned operational SRW network. SRWNM is a key component of the JTRS Enterprise Network Manager (JENM) which provides tactical network management product for all JTRS radios. JENM enables planning, instantiation, management and over-the-air reconfiguration of tactical networks comprised of software-defined radios from multiple vendors, greatly simplifying network planning and operations as compared to using separate management products provided by each qualified radio vendor.

In addition to providing SRW planning and management for JTRS radios being developed on government contracts such as the Ground Mobile Radios (GMR) and Handheld/Manpack/Small Form Fit (HMS) programs, the SRWNM development and FQT included robust planning and management capabilities for the Harris Corporation AN/PRC-117G and ITT Corporation Soldier-Rifleman Radio. Both of these radio products are being developed leveraging the JTRS Enterprise Business Model which allows radio developers access to JTRS software capabilities for integration into their products without government contracts and funding.

The JTRS Enterprise Business Model is designed to stimulate competition, increase innovation and reduce government costs through software reuse while simultaneously speeding development and fielding of tactical networking capabilities. Inclusion of radio products developed under the JTRS Enterprise Business Model in the SRWNM FQT represents a unique government and industry partnership to aggressively deliver advanced tactical networking capabilities to joint warfighters. Successful completion of the SRWNM FQT with these products included validates the JTRS Enterprise Business Model effectiveness and illustrates its ability to foster a competitive environment in the Defense communications and networking industry. All SRWNM and JENM releases are also made available on the JTRS Information Repository (IR) to other authorized users within the Department of Defense and commercial industry.

About JPEO JTRS (http://jpeojtrs.mil)

The Joint Tactical Radio System (JTRS) has evolved from a loosely associated group of radio replacement programs to an integrated effort to network multiple weapon system platforms and forward combat units where it matters most – at the last tactical mile. In 2005, JTRS was restructured under the leadership of a Joint Program Executive Officer (JPEO) headquartered in San Diego, California. The JPEO JTRS provides an enterprise acquisition and management approach to successfully and efficiently develop, produce, integrate, test and field the JTRS networking capability.

By developing and implementing an open architecture of cutting-edge radio waveform technology, multiple radio types (e.g., handheld, ground-mobile, airborne, maritime) are now capable of communicating with one another. The ultimate goal is to produce a family of interoperable, modular, software-defined radios that operate as nodes in a network. These radios enable secure wireless communication and networking services for mobile and fixed forces, consisting of joint, U.S. Allies and coalition partners, and in time, disaster response personnel.

Pentagon Ordered to Buy American for Green Technology

One of the provisions contained in the Defense Authorization Bill for this fiscal year passed at the end of Congress’ lame duck session is one that extends the Buy American requirements for the Defense Department to solar panels. The rule makes the Pentagon only consider U.S. sources for this piece of “green technology” in their contracting efforts.

The Federal government procurement laws and regulations put a whole host of restrictions on contracts issued by the Pentagon for hardware, services and support. These include the Berry Amendment and Buy American Act. These are used to support U.S. industries by granting them privileged status and providing them a ready market.

The Berry Amendment for example requires prime contractors and their subcontractors to purchase or use food, clothing, tents, cotton, woven silk and other fibers or articles made out of them only from U.S. suppliers.

The Buy American Act has been in existence since the Thirties and requires preferences for American produced or manufactured goods.

While the U.S. Government should be supporting domestic sources at the same time it can force cost or schedule implications to a program. Especially with the change in the world’s economy over the last fifty years there may not be a domestic manufacturer or source for a product. The laws are waived in this case but that causes a potential schedule change or cost growth to a program. The domestic source may also be more expensive driving up the total cost of the procurement.

These kind of social engineering attempts within defense and government contracts are worthy but like the rules pertaining to small businesses or minority owned they may have a cost or efficiency affect. They are also vehicles that may be abused through companies selling non-U.S. material as U.S. made or taking advantage of the efforts to reward certain types of businesses. There have been many cases over time of companies pretending to meet certain criteria that they don’t thus gaining an advantage in sole source or direct contract awards.

The rule about using U.S. solar cells may have the same affect. The industry like so many others is turning to China and a great deal of the world’s production capacity is in that country. U.S. companies have been reducing their footprint and this may make it hard for the Pentagon to find a source capable of delivering the product on time or at the necessary cost.

This illustrates the issue where Congress wants to get the most for their defense dollars but at the same time by favoring a supplier may be forcing the Defense Department to buy something that they could get at a better price or in a more timely fashion.
