DALLAS /PRNewswire/ -- Over the next few months, Samsung and the U.S. Army's Communications Electronics Research & Development Engineering Center (CERDEC) will evaluate WiBRO (the South Korean version of Mobile WiMAX, also known as 802.16e) technologies at the command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (C4ISR) on-the-move experimentation facility located at Ft. Dix, NJ. Experimentation and analysis will focus on leveraging commercially available WiBRO technologies in a mobile military environment in lieu of the customary commercially fixed infrastructure. WiBRO was designed to allow users to move between base stations while placement of these base stations remains at strategic (i.e., best coverage for customers) locations. Engineers will characterize the performance of the WiBRO products in an environment consisting of both mobile users and mobile base stations. Technologies such as WiBRO are attractive to the Army to provide an affordable wireless technology to the warfighter in a relatively short period of time.
CERDEC is the Army's information technologies and integrated systems center. Its Command and Control Directorate, Intelligence and Information Warfare Directorate, Night Vision and Electronic Sensors Directorate, and Space and Terrestrial Communications Directorate work together to develop and integrate C4ISR technologies that enable information dominance and decisive lethality for the networked warfighter.
