Next-generation Networking Technology for Seamless Airborne Communications

  • Goal is for manned and unmanned aircraft to readily share information despite hostile environments

Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN) is developing new technologies to allow the next generation of manned and unmanned flying vehicles to communicate seamlessly, even in hostile environments. Under two contracts totaling $9 million, Raytheon BBN Technologies will deliver new networking solutions as part of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency's Dynamic Network Adaptation for Mission Optimization program, or DyNAMO.  

The goal of DARPA's DyNAMO program is to allow pilots of different types of aircraft, with different sensor suites, to easily share information for a comprehensive view of the battlespace.


"Our team will develop two new capabilities," said Jason Redi, vice president for Raytheon BBN Technologies' Networking and Communications unit. "First, we will adapt radio parameters in reaction to changing information needs and conditions, so current and future airborne networks can communicate with each other. Second, we will create an efficient way to share information across and between networks that are currently incompatible so that applications operating on them can share relevant data."

Raytheon BBN Technologies is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Raytheon Company.
