Raytheon Shows Off Radio System Capabilities at Recent Army Exercise

Raytheon Company recently showed its tactical networking system’s capabilities at two major U.S. Army exercises, the company announced Friday.

According to Raytheon, its Mobile Ad hoc Interoperability Network GATEway MAINGATE radio system works by integrating heterogeneous groups of radios into a network in order to provide multiple channels of real-time video, situational awareness, chat and other applications.

It is composed of a high-throughput radio system that runs off of Next Generation Mobile Ad Hoc Networking Waveform. The company said there are currently more than 100 MAINGATE radio systems in service today.

At the recent Army exercise, which took place at Fort Benning, Ga., soldiers were able to receive real-time video feeds from multiple unmanned aerial vehicles along with other high-bandwidth data services.

In addition, MAINGATE also managed to provide 10 times more network capacity and supported four times more nodes than competing radios.
