Raytheon used an unclassified waveform to transmit sensitive data through military communications satellite terminals during a recent demonstration for the U.S. Air Force.
The company demonstrated the approach for the Air Force’s Design for Affordability and Risk Reduction program, Raytheon said Tuesday.
Scott Whatmough, vice president of integrated communication systems at Raytheon’s space and airborne systems business, said the platform is designed to help the military address security issues.
According to the company, the tactical waveform works to support Q-, X- and Ka- band terminals.
The technology is also built with anti-jam and intercept capabilities for forward deployed forces and remotely piloted aircraft.
