Raytheon’s vehicular soldier radio system links 37 different types of U.S., coalition radios

Raytheon has connected 37 different types of radios from U.S. military and coalition partners on its vehicular soldier radio system while providing a robust and integrated backbone for on-the-move tactical communications.

The system, featuring Raytheon’s Next Generation Mobile Ad hoc Network Waveform, will be tested at the next phase of the U.S. Army’s Network Integration Evaluation in both lab and field environments this fall.

Raytheon’s Mobile Ad hoc Interoperability Network Gateway radio, with an industry leading 10 megabits per second capacity and 128-node scalability, allows for timely and reliable interoperability with coalition partners for sharing voice, text and full-motion video across the battlefield. The unmatched 10 megabits per second capacity allows soldiers to view at least 27 videos at the same time.

“Connecting our coalition partners on a single network is significant because each country typically has its own unique radio,” said Jeff Miller, director of Tactical Communication Systems for Raytheon’s Network Centric Systems business. “Raytheon solves this long-standing problem and will test its open, non-proprietary waveform used in MAINGATE to show that we can provide an unprecedented on-the-move communications capability for our allies.”

MAINGATE with NMW will be tested as part of the NIE 13.1 Coalition/Joint Participation at Aberdeen Proving Ground, Md., and White Sands Missile Range, N.M. MAINGATE has been deployed in theater for two years, enabling interoperability with coalition partners.

NMW has recently been provided to the U.S. Department of Defense’s Joint Tactical Radio System library, strengthening Raytheon’s position as a provider of wideband Ground Mobile Radio solutions.
