SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., April 10 (UPI) -- The U.S. Army recently concluded a limited user test of the Warfighter Information Network-Tactical Increment 2 supported by General Dynamics.
The test -- conducted by the Army's 4th Brigade, 2nd Infantry Division in Washington state and the 3rd Infantry Division in Georgia -- was designed to measure the capabilities of the WIN-T Increment 2 network across wide geographic areas.
The WIN-T Increment 2 is under development to support multiple missions and tasks simultaneously through on-the-move networking capabilities. Officials said the test is being reviewed by the Army Evaluation Center.
"This is the largest and most complex user test for WIN-T and demonstrates just how critical a weapon the network is in the Army's arsenal because it is what soldiers will depend on to communicate on the battlefield," Col. William Hoppe, Army WIN-T project manager, said in a statement.
