Description: The Joint Tactical Radio System (JTRS) 5 is a family of small, lightweight, software-defined radios intended for use by all branches of US military. On 19 July 2004, the team led by General Dynamics was awarded a $295 million development contract. The contract has a potential value in excess of $1 billion if all options are exercised through 2011. The advanced characteristics and technologies introduced by the JTRS 5 program might be the foundation for new military applications of radio systems such as sensors for signals intelligence. The General Dynamics team also includes BAe Systems, Rockwell Collins and Thales Communications.

The software-defined radios technology enables a single radio system to emulate many types of radio. The JTRS cluster 5 is intended for use by joint services unattended sensors and soldier systems. The cluster 5 will consists of three different device types: power efficient manpack, handheld, and "small-form-factor" applications. Up to 14 different "small-form-factor" applications could be developed under this program, each driven by a credit card-sized advanced radio core. The JTRS 5 program will help US Army transformation providing the crucial last-mile connectivity to US warfighters. Current US Army radio systems feature scarce interconnectivity among them or between other US military services' radio systems. Future growth of JTRS 5 can be done by software updates to fielded radio systems via a wireless information network, without hardware modifications.
