    The U.S. Army concluded its three-week assessment of a waveform that could help separated squads maintain communications despite terrain and obstructions, during its annual integrated capabilities event at Fort Dix on June 25. The U.S. Army Research, Development and Engineering Command's communications-electronics cenA,A!ter conducted a 36 node assessment of the Soldier Radio Waveform in a relevant field environment. This was done to gauge the waveform's ability to support platoon-level data and voice traffic from the rifleman up to the squad leader.

SRW is "exciting" because the network "self heals" its fragmented connectivity by leveraging other squad radios using the waveform.
