Leading the development of open standards for highly mobile, directional, high-data-rate, ad hoc, mesh communications networks

DirecNet® is a multi-vendor task force that enables more effective and affordable solutions through a collaborative government-industry environment. Its focus is on the development of an open, non-proprietary communication waveform standard that:

  • Ensures high levels of affordability and interoperability
  • Encourages technical innovation benefiting overall performance
  • Provides feedback to government on technology maturity and technology insertion
  • Provides an industry body input to government working groups
  • Offers scalability so that work groups can be added to support specific government focus areas

The DirecNet Task Force enables linking of fixed and mobile platforms via self-organizing networks sharing near real time information throughout the Battlespace.
