Raytheon will provide a critical communications solution for the Department of Defense's Joint Tactical Radio System. JTRS is the next generation of radios for the U.S. military. Raytheon will be a subcontractor on the $766 million JTRS Airborne, Maritime and Fixed contract, which was awarded to Lockheed Martin in March 2008.

The AMF domain will provide network and interoperable communications for more than 160 platform types, including fixed and rotary wing aircraft, submarines and surface ships, and fixed stations worldwide.

Raytheon will co-lead the design, development and manufacture of the joint airborne radio of the JTRS AMF communications simulation efforts, and the company will design, develop and manufacture ancillary products for the system including power supplies and filters.

Raytheon will also lead the Army aviation platform piece of the contract with responsibility for overall integration of the communications systems on all Army aviation platforms.

"We have more than 40 years of experience solving the military's communications challenges," said Jerry Powlen, vice president, Raytheon Network Centric Systems' Integrated Communications Systems. "Applying our systems integration experience and building on our communications expertise to deliver this solution assure our troops have the very best capability."
