Raytheon has received a contract from the U.S. Army to demonstrate its software offering that works to help deployed warfighters gather and access data on the battlefield.
FoXTEN is a mobile intelligence platform that can be loaded onto a commercial laptop and can run at low-transmission speeds, the company said Wednesday.
“Our soldiers need real-time access to intelligence and surveillance data, and FoXTEN is designed to get that information to and from the most remote edges of the battlefield,” said Todd Probert, vice president of mission support and modernization at Raytheon’s intelligence, information and services business.
Probert added that the platform has an open architecture that allows the service to upgrade and incorporate new capabilities.
Raytheon said the Army will carry out in the next year several operational tests of FoXTEN, which may be considered by the service as a future mobile element of the Distributed Common Ground System.
