Raytheon Submits Proposal for Air Force AEHF Comm System; Scott Whatmough Comments

096_raytheonRaytheon Co. has submitted a proposal to the U.S. Air Force to build the global aircrew strategic network terminal, according to a company statement.

Scott Whatmough, vice president of integrated communication systems for Raytheon’s network centric systems business, said the company is well positioned to provide the Air Force with reliable, efficient and cost effective terminals to handle one of the country’s most important communication needs.

According to Raytheon, the network terminal is a nuclear command and control system that will use extremely high frequency and advanced extremely high frequency (AEHF) waveforms for protected communications in challenging environments.

The terminal is meant to provide wing command posts and mobile support teams with survivable communications called emergency action messages for sending and receiving alerts.

Raytheon will attempt to enhance the current system and deliver increased capacity and capabilities with the new terminal.

A contract award for the communications project is expected in June.
