Raytheon Selected as Network Systems Integrator for Army Expeditionary Warrior Experiment
Raytheon has been selected as the network systems integrator for the Army Expeditionary Warrior Experiment.
This experiment will integrate more than 25 technologies from more than 20 different companies and government agencies to operate on a single integrated backbone network.
Raytheon will provide the integration capability to establish the network and join a variety of communication devices, command and control applications and sensor platforms. Raytheon’s MAINGATE solution is the backbone of the network, which will link together unattended ground sensors, unmanned ground vehicles and unmanned aircraft systems.
“As the Army’s modernization efforts evolve, Raytheon continues to provide unsurpassed connectivity to support real-time advantage,” said Jerry Powlen, vice president, Raytheon’s Integrated Communications Systems. “We are providing simultaneous support of multiple full-motion video channels; robust, detailed situational awareness; command and control; chat; voice nets and call groups; and on-the-move access to web 2.0 applications.”
More than 150 soldiers will be participating in the AEWE, which will include 14 different missions. The three-week experiment will take place in early 2010 at the Fort Benning, Ga., Maneuver Battle Lab.
