Host
In this mode the Gateway Manager acts as a tactical terminal. It

receives data from the host via the 1553 bus or NTDS/ATDS and
routes the data to remote computers via modem or Ethernet.
When receiving data from remote computers the Gateway Manager sends the data to the host computer. If no remote computers are available, the
Gateway Manager can play back recorded files and send data to the host.

In this mode the Gateway Manager acts as a JTIDS host. It
generates terminal input messages from recorded files or
from remote computers and sends them to the terminal. The
Gateway Manager can initialize the terminal and query terminal status.

status and data received from the live terminal are sent to the virtual
terminal Gateway Manager. The virtual terminal Gateway Manager then reformats the data as Terminal
Output Messages and sends them to the host computer. Using virtual terminal and virtual host Gateway Manager enables a host computer to control a terminal remotely.

Link 16 Bus Monitor
In this mode the Gateway Manager passively captures all messages on the 1553 bus and sends them to remote computers.
Captured messages can be recorded for future analysis and

In Line-of-Sight/Beyond Line-of-Sight mode the Gateway
manager connects local participants to remote participants in a tactical network. It receives local data from Link 16 terminals via
the 1553 interface. For Beyond Line-of-Sight range extension it sends and
accepts data via satellite radio using STJ or JREAP protocols.

T
oday’s network-centric
warfare demands connectivity and access to realtime information and Northrop
Grumman’s Gateway Manager
tactical router delivers, providing
warfighters with the capability
to direct the right information to
the right place at the right time.
It enables flexible tactical data
communication among participating units ranging from local
operations to a remote connectivity.
Adaptable, scalable, dependable,
and with the inherent economy
provided by COTS hardware, the
system is designed to provide
situational awareness to operational participants at all levels of
the command structure.
The Gateway Manager provides
adaptable connectivity for a formidable array of data communications. It connects local operations to the Global Information
Grid as required by today’s joint
and international forces operations.
Proven in tens of thousands of
hours in operations and exercises, the Gateway Manager has
been used on programs including
Battlefield Airborne Communications Node (BACN), C-130 Real
Time Information in the Cockpit (RTIC), Mobility Air Forces
Dynamic Re-tasking Capability
(MAF DRC), and Roll-On Beyond
Line-of-Sight Enhancement
(ROBE).
Northrop Grumman continues
to evolve the Gateway Manager,
adding new capabilities that can
be applied to existing systems,
making it the tactical router not
only for today, but for the future.
Northrop Grumman’s Gateway
Manager supports most tactical communications, including:
• Link 22
• Link 16
• Link 11/11B
• Distributed Information
Systems (DIS)
• Satellite TADIL J
• MIL-STD-3011 (JREAP)
• STANAG 5602
• MIL-STD 6020 data
forwarding
• GPS
Simple Operation Enables Powerful Communications Management
Northrop Grumman’s Gateway Manager runs on a Windows-based operating system, enabling managing and routing of tactical communications through a familiar
human/machine interface. Its many user-friendly windows provide critical information regarding the configuration
and effectiveness of tactical communications, and enable control of the communications process.
MESSAGE FILTER:
CONNECTIVITY STATUS:
Gateway Manager uses a powerful message filter capability to
control data flow and display filtering. Users can filter messages
by Network Participation Group (NPG), Transmit/Receive, JTIDS
Unit Number, Track Number, Label/SubLabel, Category, Point
Type, Geographic Location, and many other parameters.
Gateway Manager displays, in an intuitive format, real-time
connectivity status between Gateway Manager and remote
computers.
LINK 16 MESSAGE TEXT:
Gateway Manager keeps track of all incoming and outgoing
messages. Users can filter messages by using the Message
Filter and Source Filter. In addition, users can color code messages based on Label/SubLabel. All messages can be logged to
a text file for post-event analysis and training.
GPS SIMULATION:
When connected to a GPS receiver, Gateway Manager uses GPS
navigation data to generate its own Precise Participant Location
and Identification, or PPLI, message. If no GPS is present, Gateway Manager can simulate movement by extrapolation. Gateway
Manager supports Trimble GPS, Magellan GPS and any NMEA
0183 compliant GPS receiver.
INITBLOCK EDITOR:
Gateway Manager’s powerful InitBlock Editor feature allows users
to view and modify initialization data on the fly. Users can modify
Primary Track Number, Network Time Reference, Position, Power
and other defined fields.
NETWORK CONFIGURATION:
Gateway Manager’s flexible and modular design enable users
to communicate with many remote systems. Currently, Gateway Manager supports numerous hardware and interfaces and
protocols.
JREAP CONTROL:
Gateway Manager implements MIL-STD 3011 Appendix A, B and
C. Gateway Manager can generate and receive Management
messages including: Operator Text, Echo, Round Trip Timing,
Common Time Reference, Remote Filter, Latency, Special Event
and Secondary Track Number.
TRACK DISPLAY:
Gateway Manager’s situational awareness display allows the
user to monitor tactical traffic in real time. Users can filter what
they want to see and use the search features to quickly locate
a track. Gateway Manager also supports a moving map feature.
Gateway Manager is compatible with the Portable Flight Planning
Software (PFPS). When connected to PFPS, Gateway Manager
gives users the ability to see Link 16 tactical data overlaid on top
of the Falcon View application.
Northrop Grumman’s
Gateway Manger supports the
industry’s most widely used
protcols.
