TCG BOSS solution for TDL testing, simulation, and training will be supplied to 10 ANG sites
Curtiss-Wright’s Defense Solutions Division announced it had been selected by the Air National Guard (ANG) to provide Tactical Data Link (TDL) test and training solutions in support of the DoD’s Joint All Domain Command and Control (JADC2) program. Under the contract for which Atlantic Diving Supply (ADS) is acting as prime contractor, Curtiss-Wright will provide the ANG with its TCG BOSS (Battlefield Operations Support System) TDL testing, simulation, and training solution. TCG BOSS will be used to accelerate the implementation of TDLs, such as Link 16. The TDLs serve as the communications backbone of the JADC2 program throughout the ANG. TCG BOSS will also be used to train ANG personnel on the correct and optimal usage of TDLs during peacetime and conflict. The lifetime value of the contract, which began in May 2023, is estimated to be $3.5 million. It is scheduled to run through 2026.
This contract represents the first significant upgrade to ANG training centers in recent years and the first time that TCG TDL solutions have been selected to support this ANG program.
