Boeing receives Joint Tactical Radio System service support contract
The Boeing Company announced today that it has received a two-year, $21.4 million contract from the US Navy for the Joint Tactical Radio System (JTRS) Enterprise Network Manager Software in Service Support (JENM SwISS) program.
JENM SwISS is an indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity contract with a total program value of up to $54.8 million if all options are exercised.
Under the terms of the contract, Boeing Phantom Works will draw on its tactical network management and program management expertise to deliver technical support, maintenance and upgrades for the JENM software. The program will integrate existing JTRS waveform network management systems into a single user-friendly, plug-and-play environment for network planning and monitoring across the JTRS networks.
The Department of the Navy, Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center, Pacific awarded the JENM SwISS contract on behalf of the Joint Program Executive Office for the Joint Tactical Radio System (JPEO JTRS), Network Enterprise Domain (NED) Program Office
"We will rely on our experience in developing secure, networked mobile communications systems and our understanding of the complexities involved in managing them across battle space domains," said Alex Lopez, vice president for Advanced Network and Space Systems (AN&SS), a division within Boeing Phantom Works. "By using service-oriented architecture concepts, we will help the JTRS Program Executive Office implement a unified, secure network management tool for JTRS."
Boeing has invested many years and millions of dollars into Internal Research and Development (IR&D) in the area of Network Management for tactical warfighters in the battlefield. Networks are critical in a wireless environment where the enemy constantly tries to intercept and disable them. Boeing's Network Management concepts have been prototyped and field tested, serving as the baseline for the JENM architecture.
"As JTRS radios continue to be developed, the JENM SwISS program will ensure effective JTRS enterprise network management," said US Navy Cmdr. Mark Kempf, JENM product manager, JTRS NED.
In addition to serving as prime contractor for JENM SwISS, Boeing remains the prime contractor for the JTRS Ground Mobile Radios program and led the development of the Wideband Networking Waveform under contract to the JTRS NED program.
