The Office of the U.S. Undersecretary of Defense for Research and Engineering and the Department of the Army recently demonstrated a mobile, fast-forming, secure and intelligent vehicle-centric microgrid prototype that will power next-generation warfighting capabilities and joint warfighting concepts. David Vergun, U.S. DoD News, reports.

U.S. Special Operations Forces have a new aid in the fight against cyber-attacks. The Tactical Key Loader (TKL) cryptographic key device, which answers the Army’s call for the Next Generation Load Device-Small (NGLD-S), provides critical command and control of emergency, time-sensitive and secure communications during Special Forces missions. Kathryn Bailey, PEO C3T Public Affairs, reports.

German army continues to use the American M270 MLRS, Multiple Launch Rocket System that entered in service with the U.S. Army in 1983. The German version has now been upgraded to the standard MARS II/MLRS-E able to fire guided rockets. The M270 is also in service with Egypt, Bahrain, Finland, France, Greece, Israel, Italy, Japan, Saudi Arabia, South Korea, Turkey, and the UK.

The U.S. Marine Corps is modernizing and reshaping its force for the future naval expeditionary fight. Future naval warfare, specifically in the Indo-Pacific region, will require increased mobility and active communication to circumvent difficult situations. Improving battlefield communication is a major aspect of the Marine Corps’ modernization efforts to meet this future fight. Matt Gonzales, U.S. Marine Corps Systems Command, reports.

The U.S. Army is experimenting with prototypes of fast-forming vehicle power grids that will enable greater mobility for Soldiers on the battlefield. Two Army Futures Command (AFC) research centers joined Project Manager Terminal High Altitude Area Defense and the Rapid Reaction Technology Office at Redstone Arsenal, Alabama, in March to demonstrate a proof-of-concept power system that enables enhanced continuity of operations and maneuverability. Dan Lafontaine, DEVCOM C5ISR Center Public Affairs, reports.
