Rifleman Radio Offers Secure Networking For Military

We have a Joint Tactical Fighter program, and now comes along the Joint Program Executive Office Joint Tactical Radio Systems (JPEO-JTRS) that is hard at work developing the Rifleman Radio which aims to offer secure networking capabilities to our troops on the ground. Coming in a rugged design that is lightweight, it boasts push-to-talk functionality and built-in GPS, in addition to doubling up as a hands-free headset. The device is able to hook up to its proprietary network automatically, where this network is able to expand and contract as though it has a life of its own, depending on the radios added or subtracted. Sounds like the perfect tool for squad leaders and team leaders to keep in constant communication with their subordinates.
