Ex­elis has com­pleted the in­te­gra­tion of its Global Net­work On The Move Ac­tive Dis­tri­bu­tion (GNOMAD) sys­tem into the first US Army Stryker ar­mored fight­ing ve­hi­cle dur­ing the re­cent Army Ex­pe­di­tionary Warfight­ing Ex­per­i­ment (AEWE), held at Fort Ben­ning in Ge­or­gia, US. Equipped with a fully on-the-move ca­pa­ble satel­lite an­tenna and RF com­po­nents, the GNOMAD is a satel­lite com­mu­ni­ca­tions (SAT­COM) on-the-move (OTM) sys­tem, and pro­vides a ro­bust com­mand, con­trol, com­mu­ni­ca­tions and in­tel­li­gence (C3I ) ca­pa­bil­ity that cur­rently sup­ports US de­ployed forces on other plat­forms. Specif­i­cally, the sys­tem de­liv­ers a com­bat­proven, re­li­able, easy-to-use, mod­u­lar off-theshelf commercial com­mu­ni­ca­tions sys­tem that fully in­te­grates into a broad spec­trum of ar­moured com­bat ve­hi­cles, such as high mo­bil­ity multi-pur­pose wheeled ve­hi­cle (HMMWV), mine re­sis­tant am­bush pro­tected (MRAPs), MRAP all-ter­rain ve­hi­cle (MATVs), SUVs, as well as mil­i­tary plat­forms of all types and sizes. Hav­ing sup­ported the 4th In­fantry Di­vi­sion dur­ing de­ploy­ment to Iraq in a va­ri­ety of ve­hi­cle types and used in sup­port of do­mes­tic emer­gency op­er­a­tions, GNOMAD is also pro­vid­ing di­rect sup­port to forces in South Korea, Afghanistan and other Mid­dle East­ern ar­eas of op­er­a­tions.
