                   Why Did we Establish the
                     JNTC-S Capability

“Limitations in communications bandwidth at Corps level and below,
particularly in an expeditionary environment, remain our single most
serious deficiency.”                                 General Peter J. Schoomaker
                                                                     Army Chief of Staff
                                                              Parameters, Summer 2004

“… [wideband satellite access] is the life blood of the maneuver fight for a
Corps in the attack, a Division in the attack, and in many cases a Brigade
in the attack.”                                      LTG Wallace, V Corps Commander
                                                                          13 June 2003

“JNTC-S is needed to fill a bandwidth capability gap for C2, CSS and Intel
and beyond-line-of-sight communications support down to the BN level.”

                             •   Close supervision by senior instructor

    “It has been my observation in 25 years of being involved in signal nets from the user perspective
    that the technical skills of the NET instructor on the system they are teaching is critical.”

•   Complex Contributors to the Current Challenge
     –   Modularity  first organization in Army to deploy (various BDEs)
     –   Staff  developing TTPs for work/information flow
     –   Training  speed/maturity of training plan
     –   Technical Complexity  system introduces new and complex technologies
     –   Environment  dispersion/non-linear
     –   FOB  some equipment supporting more of FOB, than just unit
     –   TOA Architecture  MSE/ATM to JNN
     –   Support  Lack of key FSRs
     – Maintenance/Parts Flow  parts not in ULLS
     –   Equipment Reuse  ECUs/generators are previous generation

                                                                                 _C3T.29   29

•   Fielding and capabilities
     –   Units/Cdrs want HCLOS capability down to each BN
     – Desire 3 LOS V(3) per 2 JNNs fielded; transit-case HCLOS radios at BN CPNs
     –   Initial fielding of NM tools (HP Open View/CISCO works) was too complex
     –   SNMPC/Solarwinds have been identified as the NM Tools for the Div
     –   Need for spectrum analyzer at the Unit Hubs/JNNs for troubleshooting
     – Unit was not fielded with test equipment (FIREBERD); had to be borrowed from
       General Dynamics to troubleshoot link problems
     –   No J-boxes to connect REDCOM IGX DSN lines/unit considers itself lucky they
         kept those they had from MSE
     –   Cisco Phones JNN came with did not have individual power supplies
     – Phones require switches with inline power, which limits distribution of services
     –   NIPR is being used at Bn level

                                                                                     _C3T.30   30

                      By MAJ Collins, PEO C3T LNO (Cont’d)
•   Equipment
    –   JNN shelter needs to be up-armored, as it is designed for a HIC environment
    –   Understood that 3ID is leaving both of its Hubs in theater (swap with 4 ID)
    –   101st will need to bring Tactical hub as the density of systems from 3ID, 101st,
        10th, and 4ID will be greater then the two existing hubs can handle
    –   Will need to backfill 3ID with 4ID's tactical hub upon 3IDs
    –   JIOC is a major concern (maintenance, sustainment, operational architecture,
        routing, manning, TS clearances)
    –   Unit Hub 1 in Qatar/operational and are in the process of employing Unit Hub 2 in
        Baghdad (30-45 days before operational)
    –   All JNN nodes (10) and BCPN (32 in-system of 34 total) have TDMA links
    –   No back-up power for the Ku trailers (fire drill to change oil)
    –   No generator on MTOE for BCPN (not sufficient power in some TOCs)
    –   No gauges on some generators to monitor (power out/hertz/consumption)

                                                                                       _C3T.31   31

•   Network Integration
     –   1st Cav designed a network based on a robust HCLOS LOS network, Digitized
         Division based MSE (ATM), and combined with a very robust VOIP network
         leveraging the Secret backbone
     –   Integrated into the commercial KICC infrastructure using DKET, and Fiber
     –   1st CAV devised RIP plan that left behind call managers in the TOCs (Publishers)
         and called for JNNs to transition call manager from Publisher to Subscriber
     –   Did not have insights into the how/why behind the configuration of JNTC VOIP
         network, using CMs at the JNN and CM Express at the Bn nodes
     –   Routing issues are not necessarily unique to JNN (3rd Sig BDE/22nd Sig BDE)
     –   Network routing takes constant attention/oversight and can always get better
     – Unit is still developing TTPs on what reports they should gather and what
       information to track to measure success or weakness of the network

                                                                                        _C3T.32   32

•   Maintenance
    –   DPI did not provide adequate PLL at time of fielding
    –   PLL needs to be provided as a package by UA/UEx, not for entire Division
    –   The unit has no personnel trained on commercial generators or military ECU repair
    –   Evacuating an ECU to the LSE can be time consuming.
    –   Limited to no JNN or trailer maintenance training was provided to units ELM shop
        (52C/52D/918 Warrant)
    –   Unit does not perform DS maintenance with technical COTS equipment
    –   MTOE needs to provide more tech warrants and less maintenance warrants
    –   JNN and Ku are tracked almost as ‘separate’ systems

                                                                                   _C3T.33   33

•   Training
     –   Speed of fielding/reduced training was large contributor to many challenges
     –   NETOPS complexity of overlaying a JNN network on existing MSE architecture
     – Enhanced CFSR team needs to be in place for TOA+ 30-60 day window
     –   Detailed routing architecture/analysis is beyond the ability level of most signaleers
     –   Robust training package needs to be developed to support future fieldings
     –   Consider an in-country MTT/leverage existing Digital Signal University

                                                                                         _C3T.34   34
