  • PM NV/RSTA Demonstrates Sensor System Interoperability and Networking

    Nov 15, 2011

    Over the past few years, the U.S. Army has increasingly focused on bringing together what were once disparate tests of its various network systems into holistic and realistic semi-annual exercises. Two such exercises are the Empire Challenge (EC) (held annually at test facilities) and the Army's newest entry this year, the Network Integration Evaluation (NIE) held semi-annually at test facilities. Attended by more than 2,000 participants representing the U.S. and several other countries, the EC11 demonstration enabled participants to "flex their system interoperability muscles" in a very realistic operating environment. In a similar fashion, the NIE's purpose is to conduct required evaluations in support of Program of Record (POR) milestones and to advance integration and understanding of the objective to bridge Army network architectures. The common thread between the two events is the concept of system interoperability and networking; in simple terms, through these events, the Army seeks the answer to a very basic, yet critical question - - can we get these systems to communicate with, and across each other in a way that is meaningful to the Soldier and ultimately enables success in the fight?
