Army to Test Updated WIN-T Operations Toolset This Spring

WIN-TThe U.S. Army intends to evaluate a new suite of tactical network operations tools designed to help soldiers manage voice, data and video communications in the battlefield.

An updated NetOps toolset is scheduled to undergo operational tests as part of a Warfighter Information Network-Tactical Increment 3 follow-on demonstration this spring at the Army’s Network Integration Evaluation 16.2 event, the Army reported Tuesday.

NIE 16.2 will take place at Fort Bliss in Texas, and at White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico.

The Army updated NetOps in an effort to help military personnel to configure, monitor, troubleshoot and secure the WIN-T infrastructure.

The military branch has assessed NetOps upgrades during a recent functional qualification test on WIN-T Increment 3 at a contractor facility in Massachusetts and plans to conduct a risk reduction test at Aberdeen Proving Ground in Maryland ahead of the NIE event.

WIN-T works as the backbone for the Army’s other networked communication systems and mission command applications and is built to support warfighters at command posts or in tactical vehicles.
