      A "Warfighter's Internet" recognizes that next-generation warfare will take place in an information-rich environment, with highly mobile forces who are dependent on beyond line-of-sight (BLOS) communications. Connectivity is required to provide them information, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) products, command and control (C2) messages, logistics support, and fire support. This technology also has direct application to the Test and Evaluation (T&E) community by providing the geographical extension of the range boundary via mobile BLOS communications.
