Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN) announced a fall release of its Raytheon Advanced Tactical System 2.0, which leverages the Google Android™ mobile platform to bring intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) data to the warfighter. The 2.0 release will provide enhanced capabilities with interactive communications providing secure situational awareness, full motion video, buddy tracking and secure chat features.
"Our latest release significantly enhances ISR information sharing between Edge users and major ISR databases such as Distributed Common Ground System (DCGS) enterprises, allowing users to quickly access intelligence data in real time from anywhere in the world," said Mark Bigham, vice president of Defense and Civil Mission Solutions for Raytheon's Intelligence and Information Systems business.
Raytheon Advanced Tactical System, launched in April 2009, delivers multimedia content faster, in less time to warfighters and provides a common mobile device for tactical situations. Field trials for the 2.0 release were completed in April 2012. The Raytheon Advanced Tactical System 2.0 enhancements include:
The Raytheon Advanced Tactical System device disseminates vital intelligence data via the DCGS Intelligence Backbone (DIB) architecture system. Information is shared instantly and securely on the DIB and is searchable to mobile device users and other DIB users. Raytheon has demonstrated how the device provides the warfighter the ability to make decisions in seconds and minutes, rather than hours
