U.S. Soldiers assigned to 3rd Squadron, 2nd Cavalry Regiment (2CR), conduct a
platoon live-fire exercise at the Grafenwoehr Training Area, Germany. The
exercise demonstrated the squadron's use of the newly fielded Integrated
Tactical Network (ITN).
The ITN provides the Army with a network that is more secure
and resilient by offering units multiple network
communication pathways when faced with contested or
congested communications environments.
The ITN is a
simplified, independent, mobile network solution that is
available down to the small-unit dismounted leader to
facilitate mission command, situational awareness, and
The ITN incorporates the
Army’s current tactical network environment with commercial
off-the-shelf components and transport capabilities via
capability sets, beginning with Capability Set 21 for
infantry brigade combat teams and initial capabilities for
Stryker BCTs, and future capability sets for Brigade,
Stryker, and Armored BCTs.
