Exelis Updates SpearNet Radio For September Software Release

ITT Exelis has updated its handheld radio systems to increase data transfer speeds and work during network slowdowns, the company announced Monday.

The SpearNet systems atransfer voice, data and video through an ad hoc network system.

Existing users will perform upgrades through a software download starting in late September.

Exelis said the new system moves data at a rate two-to eight-times faster than other models.

The McLean, Va.-based firm added that SpearNet’s developers have also added a roaming feature to provide connectivity in the event of a network failure.

The radios also have built-in military characteristics such as jamming resistance such as encryption.
