Army Fielding First Integrated Tactical Network Capability Set Ahead of 2028 Deployment

The U.S. Army is working to incorporate commercial off-the-shelf platforms into the future integrated tactical network to field an initial ITN capability set, C4ISRnet reported Tuesday

Maj. Gen. Randy Taylor, commander of the Army’s Communications and Electronics Command, said the ITN will be a mix of legacy and modernized systems that requires different sustainment procedures during the AUSA Global Force Symposium in Huntsville, Ala.

The Army also increased equipment warranty terms from one year to five years to accommodate short-term system sustainment. Army officials developed a strategy to integrate capabilities into the ITN biannually ahead of the network’s projected deployment by 2028.
