The U.S. Army plans to invest money to update its mobile tactical network and increase interoperability between troops, Federal News Radio reported Thursday.

Maj. Gen. Pete Gallagher, director of the Army’s Network Cross Functional Team, said at an Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association event held Thursday that the military branch looks to award contracts by the end of the current fiscal year to address four areas in two of the group’s lines of effort.

He told audience the service branch will use a portion of its 2018 budget to fund research and development projects and modernize networks that support security force assistance brigades deployed in Afghanistan.

“We spent a lot of time on that the past couple of weeks on divesture recommendations and then where do we need to invest heavy in certain program lines that’s going to give us the maximum network flexibility we are going to need going through 2024,” Gallager added, according to the report.
