Joint Tactical Terminal Next Generation

JOINT TACTICAL TERMINALS PROVIDING INTEGRATED BROADCAST SERVICE

Leonardo DRS continues to push the limits of SWaP-C (Size, Weight, Power and Cost) in our family of multi-functional tactical terminals. We are packing more channels into smaller volumes, providing additional capabilities and saving space on platforms. That’s big thinking in compact, cutting-edge products.

For over 20 years, Leonardo DRS has been the leader in integrated broadcast services providing solutions that facilitate increased communications to all U.S. military branches and FVEY partner nations. Over 1,200 terminals have been designed, developed, integrated, tested, certified and produced to ensure militaries are equipped with the highest performing situational awareness capabilities.

Chosen by the U.S. Army to replace aging Joint Tactical Terminals ensuring military services keep pace with evolving technical advancements.

The Joint Tactical Terminal Next Generation (JTT-NG) is the smallest, most capable integrated broadcast service transceiver and/or receiver solution available, and it is certified by the Joint Interoperability Testing Center. JTT-NG provides the most comprehensive near real-time battlespace awareness capability to the warfighter by communicating millions of threat, survivor, and blue force tracking reports daily.

These advanced tactical receiver and transceiver systems are stand-alone, interoperable, beyond line-of-sight, and miniaturized common interactive broadcast systems with a 66% reduction in size, weight and power to meet warfighter requirements. With embedded capabilities to support future waveforms, the JTT-NG is the best long-term technical solution to meet critical mission needs.

The JTT Program office is currently accepting orders.

Joint Tactical Terminal Product Family

Integrated Broadcast Receiver – Miniaturized (IBR-Mini)

Integrated Broadcast Receiver - Miniaturized (IBR-M)The IBR-Mini is the next generation of Leonardo DRS' Air Force Tactical Receive System-Ruggedized, yielding a two-thirds size and weight reduction while maintaining all functionality. It provides red side processing for filtering, correlation, and translation; therefore, freeing up platform processors for other mission functions. It is a four-channel, software-defined terminal that delivers integrated broadcast service via the common interactive broadcast waveform and is reprogrammable for future waveforms.

The IBR-Mini is the world’s only integrated broadcast service receiver designed with a modular bolt-on transmit upgrade option to the Joint Tactical Terminal – Miniaturized. The IBR-Mini provides simultaneous common interactive broadcast receive and UHF SATCOM secure voice, text, and data transmit via the integrated waveform or the mobile user objective system waveform.
