1 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

3 Way Ahead Operational View Phase I and II: Fixed and ground vehicle testing (23 Jan – 3 Feb) 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 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, 4 th 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 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. Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) Video Dissemination : focused on identifying and assessing applications that provide real-time video to Warfighters. Tactical Mobility Security Integration Assessment (TMSI-A): focusing on developing and assessing a baseline mobile security architecture based on CFSC/Suite B requirements. Supporting Initiatives Background

5 Countries with commercial LTE service Countries with commercial LTE network deployment on-going or planned Countries with LTE trial systems (pre-commitment) LTE Utilization

6 Current LTE Band Allocations LTE Band Number Uplink (MHz) Downlink (MHz) Width of Band (MHz) Duplex Spacing (MHz) Band Gap (MHz) LTE Band Number Allocation (MHz)Width of Band (MHz) TDD LTE frequency band allocations FDD LTE frequency band allocations LTE Band allocations far exceed those of any previous cellular technology (GSM or CDMA) LTE has plans to repurpose 9 existing cellular frequencies used by GSM and CDMA LTE Band allocations include: Band 14 – US Public Safety spectrum Currently unlicensed spectrum ISM Band Spectrum Future plans to allow LTE to utilize unused white space bandwidth

7 CENTCOM Analysis – AFG & GCC countries 36 Uplink/Downlink Bands Recommendations : Timelines: work formal approvals during year 1 of JCTD Pre-engagement – (assists formal approval) AFG - ISAF Reps meet monthly – Verbal expected approx. 6-9 months GCC – JFMO meets w/GCC Director every six months JFMO assesses impact to U.S. operations Formal: Submit DD 1494 (assumes successful pre-engagement) Bands 13/14 – Afghanistan Bands 12/13 – GCC Nations (Bahrain, Oman, Qatar, Kuwait, and UAE) Band 17 – AFG & GCC Band 18 – GCC Nations Band Uplink Downlink Band Uplink Downlink
