Joint Tactical Radio System

The Joint Tactical Radio System (JTRS) was planned to be the next-generation voice-and-data radio used by the U.S. military in field operations.

However, the project was cancelled in October 2011 by the United States Undersecretary of Defense, stating that:

Our assessment is that it is unlikely that products resulting from the JTRS GMR development program will affordably meet Service requirements, and may not meet some requirements at all. Therefore termination is necessary.

The funding for the project was allowed to expire in March 2012.

Famous quotes containing the words system, radio and/or joint:

    ... in America ... children are instructed in the virtues of the system they live under, as though history had achieved a happy ending in American civics.
    Mary McCarthy (1912–1989)

    Denouement to denouement, he took a personal pride in the
    certain, certain way he lived his own, private life,
    but nevertheless, they shut off his gas; nevertheless,
    the bank foreclosed; nevertheless, the landlord called;
    nevertheless, the radio broke,

    And twelve o’clock arrived just once too often,
    Kenneth Fearing (1902–1961)

    I learned from the git-go in the joint to get in touch with the soft, nurturing side of myself, the feminine side.
