Military Communications

Increasing combat effectiveness through information technology

High-performance networks are critical for Network Centric Warfare (NCW) and the ongoing transformation of U.S. forces to an Information Age force. Commercial network and information assurance technology are significant drivers in this transformation.

Although NCW involves combat developments across the full spectrum of DOTMLPF1, it is the network that provides the essential capability to link sensors, shooters, and decision-makers to achieve information superiority and ultimately increased combat effectiveness.

Dynetics understands that the development of a network for a complex system of systems, or for a single system, involves a rigorous system engineering process with a focus on overall system level requirements in the context of related NCW organizations and doctrine and commercial network and information assurance technology developments.

Dynetics has a proven track record of success in developing network requirements, assessing network performance, and conducting network testing for major Department of Defense (DoD) system of systems programs. Dynetics’ success in military network communications can be attributed to our disciplined systems engineering approach and strength in the following areas:

  • Sensor and weapons and associated modeling and simulation
  • Network modeling and simulation
  • Advanced mobile ad-hoc networking waveforms
  • Commercial network technology
  • Information assurance

Expertise in sensors and weapons and the capability to model and simulate their performance is critical to making the trades necessary to allocate performance requirements between sensors, weapons, and the network.

A solid network communications modeling and simulation capability is essential to allocating requirements among network components, assessing the performance of alternative networks, and for developing test scenarios.

Dynetics Network Modeling and Simulation toolbox includes a suite of integrated tools:

  • A quick-running discreet event network communications simulation
  • A network link analysis tool with an integrated terrain data base
  • A network flow analysis tool, which also develops transmit/receive scheduling input for the network communications simulation

Dynetics has understanding and experience in developing networks for complex military systems, a disciplined systems engineering approach, and strengths in the many disciplines related to network development, resulting in the capability to deliver outstanding network communications products and services.
