"BAE and its partners [..] have yet to design the new system"
And the MoD thinks it is going to have its new toy in 2026 ?
Without overcharges ?
I think I'll be reading about this project's delivery date before, and after, 2026.
The UK military is set to get a new tactical wide-area network from BAE Systems just in time for the decommissioning of the old one from BAE Systems, for which BAE Systems will bank £89 million ($113 million) for its efforts. Details regarding the new battlefield network, dubbed "Trinity," are scarce from both the Ministry of …
unless they are repackaging existing kit there is no way 89M pays for custom radios
all you can do is essentially recenter the frequency around Military frequency allowances and even then 89M wont pay for all the actual engineering to be done...
all they will end up with is supply chain full of china/APAC based vendors rebadged with no clue that the kit is being used for military use...
intresting would be the split in fee's between BAE to Kellogg since those "consultants" don't have any RF experience they just talk a good game
"Trinity is a land based, tactical wide area network and in that sense is not to [sic] dissimilar to a space based wide area network," Mark Todd, BAE Systems Digital Intelligence head of products told The Register.
So in essence, whenever aspiring to have a global reach, not at all dissimilar to those paramilitary overground undertakings of Universal Virtual Force with Immaculately Resourceful Assets which one has to assume will be targeting them as hostile frenemies with their irregular and unconventional volunteer armies.
It is not gonna be easy, nor cheap, ensuring that little lot doesn't blow everything up at most every future turn.
We need to go to war.
Spending all this money and then never using it for a war is a complete waste.The more wars you have, the more cost effective the tech is. You can do it by dead bodies or countries invaded. Maybe not countries invaded. 200 years later they will be demanding 12x your GDP in compensation.
I mean, we don't even know that it works. They might have shipped duff gear and hoped for the best. We should at least have one war to make sure it worked, before giving them another contract.
We need to go to war. .... Spending all this money and then never using it for a war is a complete waste. ..... Tron
Only the perversely corrupt and bereft of future advantageous creative benevolent intellectual property support warmongers relying on the ignorance of the masses to not notice and remedy their intelligence deficit with the honest truth about the fake news machine supplying false trails and tall tales that enrich a self chosen very few to the detriment of everyone and everything else.
The following few short sentences originating here and entitled ........WHY WOULD THEY WANT TO SOLVE IT? .... tell IT and AI and every man and his dog like it really is, and clearly identifies who and what is to blame and shame and ripe ready for current extinction from future events ‽ ‽
The entire world is nothing but a racket. Just call it a war and the funding is never ending. Why would any politician or general ever want peace? Their funding would stop. Why would Big Pharma and their media co-conspirators ever want to cure cancer or any disease created by other mega-corporations? Their riches would evaporate.
The war on terror must never be won, because the Department of Homeland Security and all the parasites that live off that bloated cow need your money. Joe Rogan points out the same narrative when it comes to homelessness. Bureaucrats and departments in all these Democrat shitholes don’t want to solve the homelessness problem. They would be out of jobs. Everything is a racket.
So no one picked up on the final comments
The seemingly contradictory "...but Todd did tell us that BAE would keep delivering Falcon while Trinity development continued."
"Trinity is designed... as an extension to Falcon," Todd said."
Which implies it requires Falcon if it is an extension. So maybe just a shift to a different IP routing protocol, or an IP4 to IP6 upgrade.
