1 4/11/2017 Joint Operational Long Term Evolution Deployable Tactical Cellular System (JOLTED TACTICS) FY 13 Participants COCOM Sponsor: USCENTCOM/USSOCOM; USAFRICOM (SOCAFRICA); USPACOM (SOCPAC) Oversight Executive: OSD/RFD, Mr. Larry Goodell Operational Manager: USSOCOM – Mr. Kevin Mitchell; USCENTCOM – Mr. Jim Eitel Technical Manager: JS/J6 C4AD – LTC Scott Brooks; Mr. Al Knight Transition Manager: USSOCOM PEO C4 (Mr. John Lockwood); NAVAIR 4.5 (Mr. John Cooper/Mr. John Torres) NSA: Mr. Tim Mooney, NSA JCTD Liaison; (office will assign permanent AO once JCTD is approved) Other participants/partners: Army Information Systems Engineering Command (ISEC); Marine Forces Pacific (MARFORPAC) Experimentation Center; SMDC ARSTRAT; DAG2; FCC; Joint Spectrum Office; NETT WARRIOR; GORGON STARE; PM WIN-T

2 JOLTED TACTICS Proposed Concept:
Lightweight, man/vehicle-portable, airborne and/or maritime comms-on-demand packages that allow users to quickly establish secure 4G wireless and Line of Sight and Beyond Line Of Sight networks anytime, anywhere with minimal training and equipment. What the JCTD will do: Provide video, voice, chat and data connectivity seamlessly across the battlespace Comms capability & maneuverability in areas with impaired or non-existent infrastructure Built-in geolocation with extremely accurate triangulation (vehicles, hide sites, interior locations – no satellite fix required) Inherent flexibility with standard commercial cellular services: operates during mobile vehicle ops; real-time streaming from tactical aircraft/RPAs Key Technologies: Lightweight, tailorable, secure 4G comms packages that provide COTS infrastructure and handsets Rapidly deployable IP base stations that connect to and create tactical area networks Leverage existing satellite and line of sight systems for backhaul Reachback to support C2 and intelligence operations Data compression and software-based encryption GOTS/COTS mobile devices and apps This proposal is applicable in many scenarios to include maritime/littoral, airborne and ground based fixed and on the move operations. Additionally, it provides the flexibility to operate with or without Type 1 encryption Additionally, the need exists for ISR dissemination systems that can provide more communications bandwidth, significantly increased data storage and better processing capability to handle higher fidelity/larger data posed by new sensors (HD video vs analog, etc) Looking to leverage what the commercial sector has done with improvements in significantly higher data rates with 4G LTE technology Fully compatible with commercial 4G devices that operate within the tactical network to send and receive video, voice and text. Additionally, if users extend outside the effective range of the network, they would be abl to revert to commercial BLOS comms. While at decreased rates, the mission critical information would still reach the edge (e.g., mission flexes during HVT raid to a hidesite outside 4G bubble)

3 Supporting Initiatives
Background Operational View Sponsor: U.S. Special Operations Command, U.S. Naval Air System Command, and JS J6, DD C2I, C4 Assessments Division Purpose: Concept validation initiative focused on finding, integrating, assessing, joint certifying and rapidly fielding a commercial-off-the-shelf, 4th Generation Long Term Evolution (LTE) communication capability Capability Characteristic High data-rate access to critical mission information Ground, Airborne and Sea based implementations Commercially available devices (Low cost and easy to use) Deployable Private cellular network/owned, operated and managed by warfighters Supporting Initiatives Way Ahead Phase I and II: Fixed and ground vehicle testing (23 Jan – 3 Feb) Bold Quest 12-1 CDE Participation (Jun 2012) Phase III/IV JITC Certification Testing Shipboard SAIL Facility (Jul 2012) Airborne testing phase and USSOCOM/JSOC Aerial Combat Evaluation (Aug 2012) AEWE Fort Benning (Sep-Oct 2012) JOLTED TACTICS JCTD (CENTCOM, SOCOM, PACOM & AFRICOM) Spectrum Plan Command and Control Applications over Broadband Cellular (C2ABC) : provides the Warfighter the ability to distribute critical C2 position, location, and information data over broadband cellular technology.
