Raytheon to incorporate Persistent’s MANET technology

21st May 2018 - 14:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Persistent Systems has entered into a five-year partnership with Raytheon to incorporate its Wave Relay mobile ad hoc networking (MANET) technology into Raytheon's family of manned and unmanned systems and sensors, the company announced on 16 May.

Persistent's Wave Relay MANET system transmits and receives data, video, voice and other applications. It can continuously adapt to fluctuations in terrain and other difficult environmental conditions to maximize connectivity and communication performance. The Wave Relay proprietary routing algorithm allows users to incorporate vast numbers of meshed devices into the network in which the devices themselves form the communication infrastructure.

Integration has already started across a number of Raytheon platforms.

Herbert Rubens, CEO of Persistent, said: ‘Persistent's vision is to empower the soldier via the network. The real winner today is the soldier on the ground. As industry leaders, such as Raytheon, incorporate Wave Relay technology into their systems and sensors, the soldiers gain massively increased capability without having to carry any additional weight.

‘The advanced systems that Raytheon is developing will improve situational awareness, protect our soldiers and make them more effective.’
