Raytheon has introduced a new software that aims to help help modernize the way the U.S. Army gathers intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance data from the battlefield.
The company said Tuesday its portable Force Multiplier Tactical Edge Node is designed to integrate and simplify the features of the service's existing Distributed Common Ground System ““ Army network.
FoxTEN is capable of installing future modifications and new applications, as well as accommodating more information sources, Raytheon said.
Additionally, analysts can use the software to store critical data in a hard drive while in areas that lack or have limited connectivity.
Greg Hansel, business development manager for mission support and modernization at Raytheon, said analysts can connect FoxTEN to a laptop while in a high mobility multipurpose wheeled vehicle or a Stryker to process, exploit and disseminate critical intelligence.
The Army will assess the Raytheon software in November during the Network Integration Evaluation in El Paso, Texas.
