12 UNCLASSIFIED ATTACK PROTECT SUPPORT UNCLASSIFIED Why POR (RCON)? Investment based on Lessons Learned, constant change of vehicle for mobile ops, and opportunity to provide additional capability with lifecycle cost savings Designed to better enable Technical Insertion/P3I -Low coupling between modules; modular, scalable, open architecture allows insertion of new capability packages without impacting existing modules Reduced complexity/SWaP, improved usability, increased reliability/maintainability -80% less power, 40% less weight, 63% less volume, 43% less cabling -Supports Multi-INT vehicle integration -Hookup is simplified using visual cable and chassis markers; easier access to LRUs -Use of common components reduces training costs Improved modularity/flexibility to support multiple simultaneous missions -Mission -Tailorable – take only necessary equipment for specific mission -Dismount & Man-pack; Dismount & Mobile; Mobile & Man-pack -Functional capabilities fully contained in independent modules SATCOM, Sensor, and Network/Server functions are independent -Transit cases/modules powered independently -Enables mobile (without A-kit) operations on various military platforms Enables a non-vehicle specific solution and simultaneous ops with significant reductions in integration time, integration design cost and per system integration costs

13 UNCLASSIFIED ATTACK PROTECT SUPPORT UNCLASSIFIED Prophet Network Convergence WG Goal: Migrate Prophet from TROJAN transport architecture into the Common Army Tactical Architecture (WIN-T) Requirements: Due to Prophet’s unique mission, Prophet sensor and control nodes require low latency connectivity directly to NSA via NSANet, as well as access to JWICS, plus help desk and NETOPS support -WG has met three times (Aug and Oct 10, Jan 11) to refine requirements for Prophet, e.g., Number of Nodes, Bandwidth by Enclave, Latency Constraints -ATH requirements are now threshold; OTM requirements moved to objective PM WIN-T and TCM N&S COA development has identified a proposed way-ahead that leverages WIN-T Incr 1 Modems at NSC-T and RHN’s as notional architecture. -Notional Architecture addresses QoS for Prophet Sensors as part of a Mesh Sub-Net that assures at minimum 512Kbs threshold requirement Way Ahead for 2011: -Conduct “Face to Face” meeting with major stakeholders -Identify resources needed (funding, equipment, SATCOM bandwidth and NSANet/JWICS connectivity) and coordinate schedule and draft test plan -Conduct Proof of Concept in CONUS using the NSC-T as a SATCOM PoP with direct connectivity to the TNCCs or GISA.
