04 Jan 11. Northrop Grumman Corporation’s Joint Interface Control Officer (JICO) Support System (JSS) received Milestone C approval from the U.S. Air Force November 19. After integration with other air and space operations center systems, JSS will be deployed to as many as 26 Air Force and joint military sites worldwide. In October 2010, JSS achieved two significant milestones needed for final fielding approval. JSS received the Air Force’s Certification to Interoperate with U.S. and allied data link networks and was granted an Authority to Operate, permitting JSS to connect with U.S. classified networks.
04 Jan 11. Northrop Grumman Corporation has successfully completed the second flight test phase of the Multi-Role Tactical Common Data Link (MR-TCDL) system, which provides real-time networking connectivity to warfighters and commanders by enabling extremely fast exchange of data via ground, airborne and satellite networks. This series of 14 flight tests verified the MR-TCDL system’s capabilities, marking a critical milestone toward completion of the MR-TCDL developmental testing program. For the flight tests, Northrop Grumman integrated MR-TCDL onto a Gulfstream II aircraft and a NASA ER-2 aircraft and digitally connected the aircraft to each other and to a series of ground entry points. The tests demonstrated the system’s ability to reliably transmit data at rates greater than 200 megabits per second between multiple aircraft and ground networks as well as between aircraft at distances in excess of 270 nautical miles. This capability enables high-definition video teleconferencing and high-speed connection and extension of terrestrial wired and wireless networks access for senior leaders. Northrop Grumman is performing the tests under its MR-TCDL Developmental Test and Operational Test (DT/OT) program contract for the U.S. Army Communications-Electronics Research, Development and Engineering Center. The MR-TCDL system is built by L-3 Communications Systems-West, Salt Lake City.
04 Jan 11. Savi Technology’s low-power wireless sensor technology recently demonstrated its operational performance, reliability and accuracy in separate field tests recently conducted by government- and industry-backed authorities. Savi Technology’s passage of the tests provides customers with reinforced confidence in the company’s solutions and the added benefit of third-party performance and reliability certification. Savi Technology’s products became the first to achieve DASH7 Certified™ status in tests administered by Met Laboratories, an independent testing authority working with DASH7, a non-profit industry consortium that promotes the use of the ISO 18000-7 standard for wireless sensor networking. Further, Sav
