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 air-to-ground integration.
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.
