Boeing demonstrates Network System for US fleet forces


HUNTINGTON BEACH, CALIFORNIA (BNS): Boeing has proven the capability of its Directional NetWork System (DNW) during the US Fleet Forces Command's Trident Warrior 2010 (TW10) experiment off the coast of Southern California.

DNW - the next generation of 100 megabytes-per-second+ mesh networking - was the core system used in the operational tests, conducted recently by Boeing and the US Navy.

The experiment demonstrated Boeing's ability to sustain network connectivity without satellite communications by using an airborne mesh network, a company statement said.

This type of network provides multiple communications links between several platforms at more than 100 megabytes per second, ensuring reliable routing between any two users.

For the tests, DNW terminals were installed aboard the USS Bonhomme Richard off the coast of San Diego; at US Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton; at Point Loma in San Diego to simulate another ship; and inside a helicopter flying along the coastline.

The tests demonstrated communications capabilities between all the terminals.

The experiment was part of the larger Range of Warfare C2 (ROWC2) operations being conducted by the Navy's PMW/A-170 program and AN & SS, a division of Boeing Phantom Works.
