Raytheon Introduces Seamless Airborne Communications Among Manned/Unmanned Aircraft
The engineers at Raytheon BBN Technologies have been working diligently and feverishly on technologies that will enable seamless communication in hostile environment between next-gen manned and unmanned aircraft. Having won two contracts worth a total of $9 million dollars, Raytheon BBN Technologies is hard at work under the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency's Dynamic Network Adaptation for Mission Optimization (DyNAMO) program in order to deliver new networking solutions. The goal of the DyNAMO program is to share information between pilots of different types of aircraft, with different sensor suites for a more comprehensive view of the entire battle space. Vice president for Raytheon BBN Technologies' Networking and Communications unit, Jason Redi revealed the plan for the Raytheon team citing that the team must develop two new capabilities with the first be able to adapt radio parameters in reaction to changing needs and conditions and the second is to develop an efficient way to share information across the board between networks that are currently incompatible.
This will allow current and future airborne networks to easily communicate with each other and enable the applications operating them to share relevant data. The Raytheon aircraft manufacturing company has more than 61,000 employees worldwide with a reported $23 billion in sales for the fiscal year of 2015. Raytheon prides itself on being a technology and innovation provider that specializes in a myriad of areas such as civil government, defense and cyber security solutions.
