Raytheon has been awarded an initial $14 million contract through the U.S. government to supply 650 Enhanced Position Location Reporting System, or EPLRS, networked data radios to the Department of National Defence of Canada.

"Providing our international partners with EPLRS is an important milestone in coalition interoperability efforts," said Jerry Powlen, vice president, Network Centric Systems' Integrated Communications Systems.

"With EPLRS, military forces can leverage extensive on-the-move networking capabilities for enhancing situational awareness and command and control capabilities when supporting joint missions with U.S. forces."

With more than 16,000 radios currently fielded across all four U.S. Armed Services, EPLRS provides the largest integrated tactical data network for today's highly mobile fighting force. The Canadian version of EPLRS is fully interoperable with U.S. systems.

It also offers extended networking capabilities from a wider range of frequency channels, providing additional situational awareness to soldiers. EPLRS systems are deployed on a variety of vehicular and airborne platforms.
