Troops Will Have Wi-Fi On Any Future Battlefields


While not an explanation of how it’s achieved, Defense Tech discusses something you’ll be interested in knowing about – Secure Wi-Fi technology that’s now available in “the fast-moving world of battlefield communications”.

“The 1st Armored Brigade Combat Team, 3rd Infantry Division,” Defense Tech reports, “successfully piloted the Wi-Fi capability during decisive action training at the national Training Center on Fort Irwin, California, which concluded in November, according to an Army press release.

“Each time the brigade command post relocated on the battlefield, the Wi-Fi tech made it possible for critical network and mission command systems to come online in minutes, rather than hours when soldiers had to wire a command post for network connectivity.”

Maybe it’s not actually having the Internet in battle, but it sounds like a helpful advance in military technology nonetheless.
