Persistent Systems has finished deliveries under a $5.4M contract to develop secured communications for the U.S. Army’s manned-unmanned teams.

The company said Tuesday it helped the Army’s Command, Control, Computers, Communications, Cyber, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance Center fortify an existing mobile ad hoc networking firmware.

The 18-month effort aimed to boost the firmware’s resiliency against hackers and jamming threats targeting manned-unmanned teams.

Rahul Pandya, programs manager at Persistent Systems, said the company’s updated MANET technology is made to help users keep up with near-peer electronic warfare and cyber threats.

Persistent also worked with General Dynamics to develop the GVR5 dual-band MANET radio based on work under the contract. GVR5 brings Persistent’s MANET technology to the communications of combat vehicles.
