Networking On-The-Move (NOTM) is a transformational Command and Control capability for all elements of the Marine Air Ground Task Force (MAGTF). Networking On-The-Move specifically targets urgent United States Central Command (CENTCOM) requirements but the program is envisioned to address broader requirements in an incremental approach. Leveraging expertise and lessons learned from developing Mobile Modular Command and Control (M2C2) systems operating in OPERATION ENDURING FREEDOM (OEF) since 2009, Networking On-The-Move is an Urgent Statement of Need (USON) based rapid acquisition and fielding program providing robust Command and Control on-the-move utilizing wideband satellite communications and terrestrial data links. Consisting of four subsystems: Point of Presence Vehicle Kit (POP), Staff Vehicle Kit (SV Kit), Staff Kit (SK), and Tactical Entry Point (TEP) Modem Kit (TMK), Networking On-The-Move provides access to three network enclaves, Secret Internet Protocol Router Network (SIPRnet), Non-Secure Internet Protocol (IP) Router Network (NIPRnet) and Mission Specific while incorporating Full Motion Video (FMV), Voice Over Internet Protocol (VOIP), and other data centric capabilities integrated onto Marine Corps tactical vehicles. Networking On-The-Move Staff Kits comprise ruggedized laptops with a full suite of Joint Tactical Common Operational Picture (COP) Workstation (JTCW) software to access the Common Tactical Picture and tactical data systems extending Command and Control capabilities from the rear Combat Operations Center (COC) to units on-the-move at the tactical edge.
Networking On-The-Move extends Command and Control capabilities from rear Combat Operations Centers to commanders and their staff while they are on-the-move and beyond line of sight in tactical vehicles. Wideband satellite communications and redundant transmission paths enable mobile forces, across the MAGTF to collaborate, access information, and to exchange voice, video, email, chat, and common operational picture information in a dynamic environment while on-the-move and at the halt.
ACAT IV (M) program initiated via USON, Program Initiation Milestone/Date: MS C/12 JAN 12. Last ADM: Fielding Decision dtd 22 FEB 13 NOTM AAV Fielding Memorandum dtd 8 JUL 14. NOTM HMMWV/M-ATV variants commenced fielding at I MEF in MAR 13, with fielding to I, II, and III MEF completed. NOTM AAV fielding completed with USON FOC achieved 19 SEP 14. A LOC was received in October 2014 requiring an increase in the AAO from 56 to 140 NOTM systems. PO is working to contract production of remaining systems. In the future, NOTM will include additional platforms (air, ITV) as well as military SATCOM improvements.
