Army Tests Upgraded NetOps Toolset for WIN-T Network Security

WIN-TThe U.S. Army has demonstrated an updated tactical network operations toolset as part of the Warfighter Information Network-Tactical Increment 3 limited user test during the Network Integration Evaluation 16.2 event at Fort Bliss, Texas.

The service branch said Thursday results of the evaluation will support the integration of software upgrades into the at-the-halt and on-the-move features of the WIN-T network.

Col. Charles Masaracchia, commander for for 2nd Brigade of the 1st Armored Division, said the NetOps toolset works to identify and address network issues at the command post without having to travel to a station.

Network officers tested the upgraded tool suite at the NIE event to configure, operate, monitor, troubleshoot and secure the network, the service branch noted.

The Army added the updates worked to automate many of the tasks as well as provide firewall tools and defensive cyber visualization to assist soldiers in managing and protecting the network from threats.

The service branch also looks to upgrade the NetOps of the lower tactical Internet radio network through the Army’s joint radio network manager as well as synchronize WIN-T and radio networks in the future.

To further test WIN-T Increment 3, the Army also evaluated the Network Centric Waveform v10 software, which is designed to provide satellite communications from division headquarters to the company level, the Army said.
