Tactical Targeting Network Technology Training, TTNT Training

TTNT Training, Tactical Targeting Network Technology Training covers all aspects of Department of Defense (DoD)’s TTNT waveforms for use in air-to-air networks of high-speed aircraft. Tactical Targeting Network Technology (TTNT) represents a  secure, robust and low latency IP-based TDL waveform delivering the fastest ad-hoc mesh network to the tactical edge patented by Rockwell Collins.

TTNT’s low latency and on-demand ad hoc IP networking allows aircraft, UAVs, ships and ground vehicles to automatically enter and exit the network without pre-planning. TTNT still relies on application and mission planning. The masterless self-healing networking capability ensures that even if a platform node is lost or leaves the area, the network remains active for all the other users. Department of Defense (DoD) and FCC have relocated TTNT from 1755–1850 MHz to S-band.

Tactical Targeting Network Technology (TTNT) is a proprietary waveform technology based on the Joint Airborne Network-Tactical Edge (JAN-TE) capabilities derived from
the Time Sensitive Target Networking Technology (TSTNT) requirements of the Tactical Data Link Transformation (TD-L) Capability Document (CDD): need for a high throughput, anti-jam, low latency, quick net join, waveform for IP connectivity to the Global Information Grid for fast movers.
