BAE Phoenix Radio Net Undergoes Army Trials; Christopher Ager Comments - top government contractors - best government contracting event

Bae systems logo_ExecutiveBizBAE Systems has tested a mid-tier networking radio system that is designed to help U.S. Army personnel transmit video, data and voice communications during combat operations.

The over-the-air trials were part of a cooperative research and development agreement with the Army’s Communications-Electronics Research Development and Engineering Center, BAE said Monday.

Christopher Ager, director of networked communications at BAE, said the company’s Phoenix system includes anti-jam technology and worked in rough terrain at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, N.J.

The Phoenix software-defined radio family works to operate on the government-owned Wideband Networking Waveform and Soldier Radio Waveform for tactical communications.

Phoenix systems also work to integrate with single-channel ground and airborne radio system installed in the service’s ground combat vehicles, according to the company.

BAE says it plans to test anti-jam wideband radios on up to 30 network nodes over the coming months.
