Raytheon's Secure Satellite Comm Link Production Reviewed by Navy; Scott Whatmough Comments

RaytheonLogoRaytheon Company‘s Navy multiband terminal which provides secure communication links to satellites, has finished full rate production review by the Navy.

According to a Raytheon statement, the company has already delivered 75 of the 350 terminals to be installed on Navy ships, subs and shore stations over the life of the 15-year program.

“Our Navy terminals can withstand the harshest of environments at sea while maintaining constant contact with the satellite,” said Scott Whatmough, vice president of Integrated Communication Systems in Raytheon’s Network Centric Systems business.

According to the statement, the terminals will give the U.S., Canada, the Netherlands and the U.K. up to five times the bandwidth with lower size, weight and power than the legacy systems they will replace.
