Raytheon is developing new technologies to allow the next generation of manned and unmanned flying vehicles to communicate seamlessly, even in hostile environments.
Under two contracts totaling $9 million, Raytheon will deliver new networking solutions as part of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency's (DARPA) Dynamic Network Adaptation for Mission Optimization program, or DyNAMO, the company said in a statement Monday.
The goal of DARPA's DyNAMO program is to allow pilots of different types of aircraft, with different sensor suites, to easily share information for a comprehensive view of the battlespace.
"Our team will develop two new capabilities," said Jason Redi, vice president for Raytheon BBN Technologies' Networking and Communications unit. "First, we will adapt radio parameters in reaction to changing information needs and conditions, so current and future airborne networks can communicate with each other. Second, we will create an efficient way to share information across and between networks that are currently incompatible so that applications operating on them can share relevant data."
Raytheon is providing precision munitions for firepower, a smart bomb rack that can be maintained on the fly and an advanced landing system to ensure successful missions for the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter. “Raytheon has been involved since Day One,” said Tom Copeman, vice president of business development for the company's Air Warfare Systems product line
