NetVIPRTM – A Pioneering New Military Communications Network

BAE Systems Digital Intelligence | August 20, 2022

BAE Systems has unveiled its latest deployable networking product, NetVIPRTM, which provides intelligent and secure military communication networks linking everything from small reconnaissance drones to combat vehicles, fighter jets, aircraft carriers or military commands. The modern, multi-domain battlefield that comprises land, sea, air, space, cyber and electronic warfare is hugely contested and it is vital that militaries maintain control of their communications in this challenging environment. NetVIPRTM uses the full spectrum of communications infrastructure to avoid being solely reliant on satellites or fixed infrastructure which are often targeted by adversaries, so will be much more able to sustain a communications network through a myriad of offensive challenges. NetVIPRTM is made up of a series of nodes and each node in the secure network is able to add, access and move data. This means that even if some nodes are damaged in warfare, the rest automatically re-route to maintain optimum network speed and flow of information, making it highly resilient. Traditional military networks rely on hardware being set up and then maintained by specialists. As NetVIPRTM uses software to perform functions usually carried out by hardware it can be updated from remote locations instead of the frontline, providing uninterrupted network access and data transmission. This ‘plug and play’ approach works with communications hardware found in most military platforms. Over the past two years, BAE Systems has demonstrated NetVIPRTM’s capability on a range of equipment, integrating it with existing military radio systems. The team has also demonstrated the network management interface, enabling military users to configure and monitor the NetVIPRTM network. Dave Sullivan, development lead of NetVIPRTM explained: “Building deployable communications networks in an operational battlespace is a complex challenge. NetVIPRTM is a software solution providing an intelligent, flexible and secure network that can be deployed from Command Headquarters all the way down to uncrewed air vehicles or other new autonomous platforms.” About BAE Systems Digital Intelligence: BAE Systems Digital Intelligence is home to 4,800 digital, cyber and intelligence experts. We work collaboratively across 16 countries to collect, connect and understand complex data, so that governments, nation states, armed forces and commercial businesses can unlock digital advantage in the most demanding environments. Launched in 2022, Digital Intelligence is part of BAE Systems, and has a rich heritage in helping to defend nations and businesses around the world from advanced threats.
