US Navy selects Raytheon to provide joint tactical terminal radios

MARLBOROUGH, Mass., 21 Sept. 2012. The U.S. Navy was seeking secure radios that are combatable with the common interactive broadcast (CIB) waveform, they found their solution in Raytheon Co. (NYSE: RTN). In an $8.7 million modification to a previously awarded contract, Raytheon will be providing the U.S. Navy with joint tactical terminal senior (JTT-Sr) radios that are compatible with the CIB waveform.

The radios receive and broadcast threat data from a variety of national and tactical sensors to joint service host platforms. The information, which is 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 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, and was recently certified by the Joint Interoperability Test Command and endorsed by the National Security Agency.

The JTT-Sr is the flagship of a 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. Now, JTT-Sr, one of the earliest fielded multi-channel, multi-waveform software-defined radios, provides this communication link.  

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