How Technology Will Transform Naval Communications

FREMONT, CA: Modern fleets rely heavily on radio and satellite technology, which is why efficient and secure communications have always been a must for fleets. And as the military network-oriented environment, capable voice and data networks are becoming increasingly critical. the current networks of communication satellites in space are either controlled by the military or leased for commercial purposes and serve as a backbone for commanding and connecting naval platforms around the world that communicate using various radio frequencies.

The backbone for commanding and connecting naval platforms is currently the existing networks of communication satellites in orbit. SDR laser transmitters can also be used to connect platforms on land, in the ocean and in the air. Although atmospheric conditions can disrupt optical (FSO) communication links for free space, they allow high-bandwidth communication that is difficult to detect or detect.

Laser technology allows high-speed data transfer and without interception of data transmission between ships in a naval unit. While the direct mode between two transceiver terminals has a lot of bandwidth, the light-reflecting mode uses very little energy and is not affected by active routing or tracking.

In the future, buoys may become obsolete. The United States has launched the Tactical Relay Information Network (TRITON) research initiative to develop a blue laser submarine communication system to connect sunken boats to surrounding aircraft, based on technology developed in the 1990s.

One step towards a consolidated tactical cloud computing network is the Consolidated Floating Networks and Corporate Services (CANES) program. It will centralize network equipment and software so that users on land and at sea have access to them. It will consolidate and consolidate the networks installed on US warships based on the current IP infrastructure. The main objective of the CANES program is to provide the secure floating network needed for maritime and joint operations. It will also connect servers, workstations and network systems to the GIG and the US Navy’s shore-based corporate network.

To serve several classes of ships and other military systems, the U.S. Navy is looking for a scalable family of electronic warfare, radar and communications capabilities. He also intends to deploy integrated, multifunctional multi-beam arrays to reduce the upper apparatus of today’s ships. In 2009, the US Navy awarded 18 contracts to develop technology for the integration and management of radio frequency radar and communication services on future offshore platforms.
