DoD Tactical Comms Product Marketplace Goes Live

Jeff Brody

The Department of Defense's Joint Tactical Networking Center on Tuesday declared initial operational capability status for an online repository of radios, waveform devices and other commercial products designed to help DoD customers communicate.

The Tactical Communications Marketplace works to help the Pentagon's acquisition professionals  explore multiple offerings by the characteristic or attribute of a technology, the U.S. Navy said Tuesday.

“The method to evaluating communication products across multiple and critical domain elements, the Capability Characterization process will be extremely informative for acquisition authorities prior to procurement,” said Bill Brickner, director of JNTC DoD communications standards and technical analysis.

TCM is scheduled to reach full operational capability during the government's 2020 fiscal year.
