Boeing selects Calytrix CNR for DOTC
Boeing has chosen the Calytrix Technologies Comms Net Radio (CNR) group of products for use as the main communications network of the UK Defence Operational Training Capability (DOTC) (Air) System.
The CNR will provide a fully integrated communications backbone with high-level architecture support; advanced signal propagation, degradation and jamming; reconfigurable operator radio interfaces; real-time audio variation; tactical chat services; and full remote management.
Shawn Parr, CEO of Calytrix Technologies, said: ‘This multi-year product and development contract, along with the recent  enterprise sales of CNR to the ADF [Australian Defence Force] under JP9711-1 reiterates the importance of advanced radio communications in the training environment and the benefits that CNR delivers.’
Boeing will use the CNR to create realistic training services to the RAF and other defence aircrew.
