TTNT Training | Tactical Targeting Network Technology Training Course Hands-on

TTNT Training, Tactical Targeting Network Technology Training covers all aspects of Department of Defense (DoD)’s TTNT waveforms for use in air-to-air networks of high-speed aircraft at 1755–1850 MHz which is currently used and shared by commercial LTE/LTE-A cellular users.

Tactical Targeting Network Technology (TTNT) represents a secure, robust and low latency IP-based TDL waveform delivering the fastest adhoc mesh network to the tactical edge.

TTNT’s low latency and on-demand ad hoc IP networking allows aircraft, UAVs, ships and ground vehicles to automatically enter and exit the network without pre-planning. The masterless self-healing networking capability ensures that even if a platform node is lost or leaves the area, the network remains active for all the other users.

Department of Defense (DoD) is planning to relocate TTNT from 1755–1850 MHz to 1755–1850 to 2025–2110 MHz band in the next couple of years.
