Boeing provides first Tactical cross-domain capabilities for Predator, Reaper

Boeing has completed the first delivery of its tactical cross-domain technology, eXMeritus HardwareWall, to General Atomics Aeronautical Systems Inc. for integration into the Ground Control Station of the Predator/Reaper Remotely Piloted Vehicle.

The delivery is part of a contract from GA-ASI that includes additional deliveries of HardwareWall and associated information assurance and engineering support.

eXMeritus HardwareWall improves the ability of intelligence analysts and war fighters to securely access videos and imagery from the MQ-1Predator and MQ-9 Reaper.

“Our customers acknowledge that one of the most important challenges today is the need for better collaboration on mission planning and execution,” said Jonathan Moneymaker, director, Boeing Intelligence Systems Group. “Our solution provides fast, secure transfer of real-time Predator information, enabling greater collaboration and information sharing across multiple secure networks.”

This contract is part of the U.S. Air Force’s GCS Modernization Program. Predator and Reaper provide tactical and strategic intelligence to operational commanders worldwide.

The cross-domain capability is based on technology from Boeing eXMeritus HardwareWall that enables the secure transfer of information among networks operating at different security levels. eXMeritus HardwareWall is one of only a select number of technologies listed on the Unified Cross Domain Management Office Baseline, a list of validated solutions already certified and accredited by sponsoring agencies.

Boeing Intelligence Systems Group provides the subject matter expertise, technical excellence, and operational experience required to support the horizontal integration of the U.S. Intelligence Community by providing services and support for global situational awareness, content management and knowledge capture. Boeing’s solutions support the seamless integration of military and intelligence missions via the use of open standards and commercial technology.
