FireNet™ system

The FireNet systems’ additional narrow, wide-band, and Link-16 capabilities provides our armed forces with a unified tactical network.
The FireNet systems’ additional narrow, wide-band, and Link-16 capabilities provides our armed forces with a unified tactical network.

Warfighters today operate in a network-centric, information-intensive environment that demands wide data bandwidth, network diversity, and constant connectivity. Large volumes of accurate, reliable information needs to be exchanged in real-time to maintain situational awareness. Our system delivers that edge, as additional narrow and wide-band, or Link-16 capabilities enable the warfighter to stay connected when it matters most.

Intuitively designed for current and future fleets, our system provides a Modular Open System Architecture (MOSA) solution enabling additional Line of Sight (LOS) voice, data, and network communications from Very High Frequency (VHF) to S-Band. The FireNet system maximizes flexibility with a small, standardized footprint, minimizing integration effort for a wide range of mode and waveform capabilities for existing aircraft.

Key benefits

  • Preserves platform investments with deployed ARC-231 radio systems.
  • Optimized size, weight, and power design allows for easier incorporation into constrained platforms.
  • Adds a viable growth path to third party content, allowing rapid capability fielding.
  • Provides a solution using an airborne qualified system instead of using non-qualified ground radios for airborne applications.

Battle-proven communications

Designed to meet mission critical needs, the FireNet system incorporates one of two capability sets:

  • FireNet tactical system provides two independent channels of LOS and TrellisWare® TSM™ WREN with frequency spanning VHF through S-Band.
    • Anti-jam electronic counter-countermeasures (SINCGARS, HAVE QUICK)
    • APCO Project 25
    • Scalable MANET 200+ nodes
  •  FireNet Link-16 system is a CMN-4 compliant Link-16 terminal that sets the tactical data link standard.
    • Four physical RF connections (1 TX, 3 RX)
    • Secure, high capacity, jam resistant digital data
    • Inter-operable with MIDS-JTRS/LVT terminals
