Raytheon’s Networking Waveform Added to DoD Radio Library; Jeff Miller Comments

Raytheon’s next generation mobile ad hoc networking waveform was admitted to the Defense Department’s joint tactical radio system library, the company announced Thursday.

Jeff Miller, director of tactical communications systems, said companies now have the ability to port the company’s waveform into their radios.

This is the first time a waveform not developed under either the JTRS program or a legacy program has been accepted into the library, the company said.

The Waltham, Mass.-based company said the waveform powers the mobile ad hoc interoperability network GATEway and enables live video streams from drones and virtual information transfers.

U.S. forces have used the system for more than two years and the company developed the system with the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency over the last 12 years.

Raytheon recently won a Defense Information Systems Agency contract for engineering services on a global information sharing network.
