Raytheon has received an $8.7 million modification to a previously awarded production contract to provide the U.S. Navy with Joint Tactical Terminal Senior (JTT-Sr) radios that are compatible with the new Common Interactive Broadcast (CIB) waveform and contain the latest security, hardware and software enhancements.

The radios receive and broadcast near real-time threat data from a variety of national and tactical sensors to joint service host platforms.

The information, disseminated over Integrated Broadcast Service (IBS) networks, provides surveillance reports and tracking in support of theater-based tactical situational awareness needs.

The radios also provide critical ballistic missile defense support for cuing target acquisition systems and broadcasting missile detection warnings.

"The Raytheon JTT-Sr provides full compatibility with all legacy IBS tactical networks as well as the new CIB waveform," said Tom Shepherd, senior program manager for Tactical Communication Systems at Raytheon's Network Centric Systems business.

"The recent full certification by the Joint Interoperability Test Command and security endorsement by the National Security Agency (NSA) make it the first terminal certified in support of the planned upgrades to IBS."

The JTT-Sr is the flagship of a long legacy of intelligence dissemination terminals that Raytheon has provided to the military for more than 25 years.

Raytheon began intelligence dissemination terminal development in 1985 with the Commander's Tactical Terminal. And now, JTT-Sr, one of the first fielded multi-channel, multi-waveform software-defined radios, provides this critical communication link.

Raytheon recently completed upgrades to the JTT-Sr required to meet new security requirements and incorporate the next generation communication waveform at its Largo, Fla., facility.
