Description: The Joint Tactical Radio System Cluster 1 (JTRS C1) have been designed to provide the US warfighter with network-centric communications capabilities while operating with multiple waveforms. Wideband Networking Waveform (WNW), which uses common Internet Protocol-based networking concepts, are a key capability on JTRS C1. Another key element is the new mobile ad-hoc networking technology to integrate voice, video and data communications. The whole JTRS program focuses on fielding radio systems upgradeable through software which are cheaper and quicker than upgrading hardware.

JTRS C1 software enabled radio system will feature connectivity with the Global Information Grid, also know as the "Internet in the Sky", enabling access to critical information anywhere in the world. The development program includes incremental updates to the radio networking capabilities until the US government requirements for the JTRS C1 program are met. Each key capability is planned to be demonstrated in different conditions to proceed with the incremental update which would lead to the target radio system envisaged by the US government.

In June 2002 an industry team led by Boeing was awarded a $475 million contract for the System Development and Demonstration (SDD) of JTRS Cluster 1. The team also included BAE Systems, Northrop-Grumman (TRW before being acquired by NG) and Rockwell Collins. The first JTRS C1 prototypes were available in 2004 and the initial demonstrations were announced during 2005. Series production were anticipated to begin in 2007 lasting for over 12 years.

JTRS C1 is intended for integration into aircraft and ground vehicles with the entire program valued as high as $2 billion. The United States Army, Marines and Air Force were expected to require between 10,000 and more than 100,000 JTRS C1 radio systems. The Boeing JTRS GMR was officially cancelled by the US Army on October 14, 2011.
