Description: The Warfighter Information Network-Tactical (WIN-T) is a tactical communications network that meets the requirements of the US Army in the first quarter of the 21st century. It is being developed in partnership between General Dynamics C4 Systems and Lockheed-Martin. WIN-T will enable warfighters access to critical battlefield information, seamless connectivity to the global information grid, unified network operations, joint interoperability and security across a host of platforms and points of presence.

The WIN-T developmental contract was awarded to Lockheed-Martin/General Dynamics team in September 2004. The same team also includes Harris Corporation and BAE Systems. The program is estimated to cost roughly $7 billion through 2018. Critical Design Review was scheduled for September 2005 and Development test/Operation test with the first WIN-T prototype system is expected to commence in November 2005. The low rate initial production decision has been planned for March 2006. Initial Operational Capability (IOC) was anticipated for 2008.

The US Army will use WIN-T as a secure, high-bandwidth wireless communications network that will deliver mobile connectivity to soldiers across the battlefield. Integrating voice, data and video into a single network, WIN-T will keep troops in the field connected to joint and allied forces with unprecedented reliability. Thus WIN-T will facilitate the execution of network centric military operations by the Army which is foreseen as the key capability in 21st century warfare. The WIN-T Increment 1 system includes 1,860 communications nodes. As of December 2013, WIN-T Increment 2 includes 5,267 (2,846 former plans) communications nodes. WIN-T Increment 3 includes 699 (from 3,207 former plans) communications nodes.
