In the News: SOCOM Has Solved The Military’s ‘Tower Of Babel’ Problem (From RealClearDefense)
Lexington Institute, March 20, 2020 – "Over the decades, the U.S. military has created a “Tower of Babel” problem in the form of incompatible communications devices, waveforms, data protocols and encryption schemes. In an era when military forces must be integrated to allow information in all forms to pass rapidly between systems, platforms and devices, the inability to communicate could result in lives lost and defeats suffered. Sierra Nevada Corporation has developed a solution to the Tower of Babel problem called the SNC Tactical Radio Application eXtension or SNC TRAX, which is in widespread use with U.S. Special Operations Command. In essence, SNC TRAX allows different communications systems, networks and data platforms to speak the same language."
