TGGRS Overview

What is TGGRS?
TGGRS is a situational awareness (SA) radio suite that
is able to communicate through various data links while
still maintaining a light and lean quality for deployment.
TGGRS includes line-of-sight (LOS) and beyond line-ofsight (BLOS) radios controlled by a single laptop loaded
with an array of software to control the radios and pass
data to any network it’s connected to.
Full TGGRS functionality enables the deployed operator
to transmit/receive SOF and CAF air/ground locations,
sensor points of interest, chat, and video into any
connected C2 network that needs SA to reduce
fratricide and shorten the kill chain.

Why TGGRS
 Current operations lack a persistent RF gateway
 TGGRS will enhance M2M targeting and increase
battlefield SA
 TGGRS is flexible enough to meet most AFSOF
ground and air missions
 TGGRS utilizes existing AFSOF assets and requires
minimal user training
 TGGRS is tested and ready to support combat
operations NOW
