2 Unclassified TGGRS Overview 2

3 Unclassified What is TGGRS? 3 TGGRS is a situational awareness (SA) radio suite that is able to communicate through various data links while still maintaining a light and lean quality for deployment. TGGRS includes line-of-sight (LOS) and beyond line-of- sight (BLOS) radios controlled by a single laptop loaded with an array of software to control the radios and pass data to any network its connected to. Full TGGRS functionality enables the deployed operator to transmit/receive SOF and CAF air/ground locations, sensor points of interest, chat, and video into any connected C2 network that needs SA to reduce fratricide and shorten the kill chain.

4 Unclassified Why TGGRS 4 Current operations lack a persistent RF gateway TGGRS will enhance M2M targeting and increase battlefield SA TGGRS is flexible enough to meet most AFSOF ground and air missions TGGRS utilizes existing AFSOF assets and requires minimal user training TGGRS is tested and ready to support combat operations NOW

5 Unclassified TGGRS Employment TGGRS ANW2 SADL Disadvantaged / Geographically Separated Users SADL – LOS SA data ANW2 – LOS CoT SA, streaming video, chat and composite SA from SADL and UHF SATCOM network UHF SATCOM - BLOS composite CoT SA from SADL & ANW2 networks using IPoL UHF SATCOM Dismounted Operator

6 Unclassified TGGRS - Architecture Jockey CoT Router Dell XFR 6400 CISCO Switch SADL AN/PRC-117G ANW2 AN/PRC-117G UHF SATCOM Ethernet RDA Cable (USB Sync / Serial) Ethernet IPoL SIPRNET Ethernet/Fiber NOTE: Dismounted operator and aircraft architectures do not connect directly to SIPRNET

7 Unclassified TGGRS – Radio Hardware SADL Radio Provides LOS Data link and Networking Capability Formation Station Keeping Position and Sensor Point of Interest (SPI) Access to SADL and EPLRS Networks Limited Link-16 Interoperability AN/PRC-117G Radio #1 – ANW2 Provides LOS Networking Capability IP Networking for Streaming Video, Chat, and Composite SA Data AN/PRC-117G Radio #2 – UHF SATCOM Provides BLOS Data Transfer Exploiting IPoL Composite Data to/from Geographically Separated/Disadvantaged Users Provide Position Data via SA Mode Messaging via HPW and PDA-184 (RF Email)

8 Unclassified TGGRS – Misc Hardware CISCO ASA 5505 Switch 8 Ethernet ports – extra ports for scalability EAL-4 certified NAT capable Dell XFR6400 Laptop Mil Spec – fully rugged Intel Core 2 Processor Able to process multiple apps and video streams Loaded with SAMS – TGGRS build

9 Unclassified TGGRS – Software Applications Applications are part of the SAMS C2 baseline SADL Radio Jockey is the application used to set-up and control the SADL radio – uses CoT schema AN/PRC-117G Radio #1 – ANW2 Services Too is the application used to set-up and configure ports and identify IP addresses for various services (Streaming Video, Chat, and Composite SA Data) AN/PRC-117G Radio #2 – UHF SATCOM HPW and PDA-184 for messaging (RF email) IPoL provides connection for legacy CoT applications Message Router for routing of CoT to SIPRNet BareBack/GetNineLine for targeting
