• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Feel about what? That you called a $776M deal a $1B deal? :p

You should know that no govt. project ever comes in at budget. If they are asking for $.776B up front it will be well over $1B by the time it is done.:D

This is WAY under budget---at the price they're talking about, they're lucky if they could even construct a "backbone" for the system .Look at New York's Open Sky project with a 2 billion dollar price tag.. You mean to tell me projected cost for a state wide system is LESS than a world wide system?????

Jtrs

JTRS has been around as a project for a long time. It covers the entire spectrum of RF emitted by the DoD, which is one of the big problems they've had over the years. JTRS is trying to be all things to all people, and so far has ended up being nothing to anybody. Ever hear of scope creep, or requirements creep? Good luck to Lockheed, because they're going to need it.

I believe JTRS will be the end to milcoms. Full encryption ftl! Maybe not full encryption, but an evolution of encryption being deployed.

I had a huge debate with N_jay on JTRS. :lol:

So basically what I have learned is that such a system has been thought of for at least twenty years. It will use current equipment. Like p25, /\/\oto type II, etc and the NSA had a (or still does) have issues with how the use of encryption is deployed. The current stuff is hardware based where the new stuff would be software based.
