Raytheon's MAINGATE Radio completes testing at AEWE

MARLBOROUGH, Mass., Jan. 14, 2012. Raytheon Company's (NYSE: RTN) Mobile Ad hoc Interoperability Network GATEway (MAINGATE) radio system provided tactical networking capabilities at two major U.S. Army exercises, giving soldiers reliable battlefield information.

During the recent Army Expeditionary Warrior Experiment (AEWE) at Fort Benning, Ga., MAINGATE provided the backbone for wideband networking. It also performed as an alternative to the cancelled Ground Mobile Radio program during the Network Integration Evaluation (NIE) at Fort Bliss, Texas. During the testing, MAINGATE simultaneously provided multiple channels of real-time video, situational awareness, chat and other applications.

Soldiers at the squad level received multiple unmanned aerial vehicle video feeds and other high-bandwidth data services from the battalion to the tactical edge. MAINGATE provided capacity for reliable connectivity among cellular networks, hand-held radios and the Warfighter Information Network - Tactical (WIN-T) system. It also allowed soldiers to integrate information across battle command systems and sensors.


MAINGATE is comprised of a high-throughput radio that uses the Next Generation Mobile Ad Hoc Networking Waveform and a gateway that enables battlefield connectivity. MAINGATE is a mature, off-the-shelf system in production today, with more than 100 units currently deployed in theater.
