VIENNA, Va., 9 Oct. 2009. Shared Spectrum Company (SSC), a provider of Dynamic Spectrum Access (DSA) wireless technology, and Raytheon's Network Centric Systems are teaming to use SSC's DSA software on the Raytheon Enhanced Position Location and Reporting System -- eXtended Frequency (EPLRS-XF) radios.

The Raytheon EPLRS-XF is a software-programmable, wireless networking system that provides fast, reliable, tactical data communication with wideband-frequency operation. SSC's DSA software suite includes beyond state-of-the-art spectrum sensing and sharing algorithms and innovative policy-based software controls.

"We look forward to working with Raytheon to provide dynamic spectrum access as a key feature available to our military," remarks Thomas Stroup, CEO of SSC. "DSA will ensure a new level of communications reliability to soldiers in challenging spectrum environments."

"The EPLRS-XF radio gives the warfighter high-speed, on-the-move video and data exchange capabilities for a broad range of applications," says Jeff Miller, director, Tactical Communications Systems, Network Centric Systems. "Insertion of DSA technology further improves EPLRS-XF impact and enhances our networked communications capabilities to deliver the most advanced solutions to our troops."
