Talking in a straight line.
Harris and BAE Systems have recently demonstrated a self-forming,
self-healing mobile network capability using a Highband Networking Radio
(HNR) system co-developed by Harris and BAE Systems that features
directive beam technology. According to the team, directive beaming
extends range, improves throughput and enhances spectrum efficiency. HNR
technology provides fully mobile, high-bandwidth connectivity at speeds
of more than 30 megabits/sec. The two companies demonstrated HNR's
VoIP, video teleconferencing, high-definition video and e-mail
transmissions using the US Army's Joint Network Nodes to simulate
multiple tactical operations centres. Harris suggests that HNR has
potential for application to the US Army's Warfighter Information
Network-Tactical, the FCS programme, the US Navy's Forcenet and
Nato's Medium Extended Air Defense System, among others.
