Raytheon is developing new technologies that will allow the next generation of manned and unmanned aircraft to seamlessly communicate, the company said Monday.
Under two contracts totaling $9 million, Raytheon BBN Technologies will deliver networking solutions that will allow communication, even in hostile environments, Raytheon said in a statement.
The work is part of the Pentagon's Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency's Dynamic Network Adaptation for Mission Optimization program, also known as DyNAMO.
That program's goal is to allow pilots of different aircraft types, with different sensor suites, to easily share information to provide a full view of the battle space, Raytheon said.
Raytheon seeks to develop two new capabilities as part of the deal.
It will adapt radio parameters in reaction to changing information needs and conditions, so that current and future airborne networks can communicate.
It will also work to create efficient ways to share information across and between networks that are currently incompatible, Raytheon said, in order to foster the sharing of relevant data.
