MARLBOROUGH, Mass., March 19, 2012. Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN) has been awarded a contract by the Defense Information Systems Agency to continue supporting a global research, test and evaluation computer network used by U.S. and coalition forces.
The Combined Federated Battle Laboratories Network (CFBLNet) allows for the testing of new multinational information-sharing capabilities before they're transitioned to the operational networks used worldwide to support Combatant Command operations.
Raytheon has been providing installation, integration and engineering services to CFBLNet for more than a decade, as the network evolved from a temporary system supporting a single testing event to a year-round multinational system supporting a variety of coalition events in multiple security domains. The newly awarded contract extends that support for another five years.
CFBLNet is a backbone that supports initiatives like the annual Empire Challenge and Coalition Warrior Interoperability Demonstration, which showcase information-sharing technologies developed to fill operational capability gaps.
