This terminal will connect soldiers operating in forward areas and remote locations, to the U.S. Army’s WIN-T battlefield network. The increased bandwidth supported by T2C2 terminal (1000 times greater than its predecessor) will allow the use of more demanding data applications to enhance situational awareness. A larger, higher capacity version is available to support network access by users at the company level. Lt. Col. Joel Babbitt, who manages the WIN-T Increment 1, indicated that the “T2C2 will provide significantly increased bandwidth to units in joint operations”

The ICRI is a tactical radio gateway that can be rapidly deployed in areas of minimal pre-existing infrastructure to support joint operations between U.S. and coalition forces. It can provide a rapidly deployable link from the T2C2 satellite terminal to legacy line-of-sight radios (eg: MBITR, PRC117), VoIP phone, cellular phones WAVE and TETRA radios. Additionally, the ICRI can extend secure or non-secure voice communications over a IP network, for monitoring and support by headquarters.
