A Solid Market in a Troubled Fiscal Era

Military departments are developing secure tactical networking that conforms to a joint architecture, synchronized with real time information. Defense programs are being funded to provide broadband capabilities in the forms of voice, data, and imagery to commanders. As the US continues operations in Afghanistan, the lessons learned indicate the value of tactical networks is growing. Budget constraints affecting research and development open the door for the adaptation of commercial solutions to tactical networking. This research reviews military tactical networks and offers insight as well as budget assessments of several key programs. Sizing this market was accomplished through government contracts and US budget forecasts.

Executive Summary

• Funding for US Department of Defense (DoD) tactical network programs in 2012 is estimated at $X billion, which is an increase of $X million compared to 2011 distributions. According to the most current defense budget request, funding for tactical networks is expected to decline by $X billion in 2013 and fall to a total budget of $X billion by 2017.
• Government contracts awarded for tactical networks in 2012 amounted to an estimated $X billion. This amount does not include awards distributed under the Military Intelligence Program (MIP).
• The majority of tactical network funding has been dedicated toward procurement during both 2011 and 2012. Similar funding requests for 2013 will continue along the same line by dedicating most funds toward procurement; however, funding will drop by $Xbillion compared to 2012.
• The top tactical network programs for both 2012 and 2013 are the Air Force’s Global Command, Control, Communications, Intelligence (C3I) and Early Warning program and the Army’s Warfighter Information Network-Tactical (WIN-T) program. The WIN-T program is expected to grow through 2017, topping other tactical network programs.
• The Army Global Corporation acquired the most valuable tactical network contracts in 2012 by winning awards in support of Special Operations Forces Information Technology Enterprise Contracts (SITEC) and the Tactical Local Area Network (TACLAN) program.
• Documented funding estimates for the time period of 2011 through 2017 depicts the Army will invest a cumulative $X billion toward tactical networks.
• Fusing operations and intelligence at the tactical edge remains a high priority capability gap.

CEO’s Perspective

1. Adherence to technical standards is essential within DoD tactical networks market. The successful integration of emerging technologies within this market depends on common technical standards.

2. DoD tactical networks are migrating toward wireless commercial tools. Size, weight, and power (SWaP) constraints as well as a new culture of technical-savvy military are contributing to a tactical network industry evolution.

3. Significant effects of sequestration, if any, would be felt within the first year of the projected ten. Army leadership has identified the network as their number one modernization priority and plans to manage cuts accordingly.

Definitions

• The enclosed research reviews program funding and contract activity for US DoD tactical networks. Tactical networks for the purpose of this research are defined as highly mobile network systems associated with battalion-size level units and below.
• The tactical network market as defined by this research effort includes complete systems or capabilities and is segmented by military departments. Other aspects of tactical networks such as individual components, antennas, data links, software, cybersecurity, and batteries are not detailed within this review.
• The base year used for this research is 2012 because it is the most current and complete time frame of published government contract data. All years referenced within this research are based on a fiscal calendar versus the conventional calendar year.
• Forecasts are based on government open source documents and do not include classified programs as those are considered sensitive information not accessible to the public.
• Program funding and contract spending values do not always align year to year because of a combination of administration costs, multiyear contracts, and technology use across segments.

Key Questions This Study Will Answer

• Is the defense tactical network market growing, will it continue to grow, and at what rate?
• Are existing competitors meeting DoD’s technical requirements for each of the military department unique mission?
• How will sequestration budget cuts affect the overall DoD tactical networks market?
• Are current tactical networks equipped to overcome cyber attacks or is there additional development required?
