BAE Systems furthers development of the JC4ISR radio

WAYNE, N.J., 29 May 2006. The Joint Tactical Radio System Technology Laboratory (JTeL) has certified the initial operating environment for BAE Systems' multi-band JC4ISR radio as compliant to the Department of Defense's Software Communications Architecture 2.2 specifications. JC4ISR stands for Joint Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance.

WAYNE, N.J., 29 May 2006. The Joint Tactical Radio System Technology Laboratory (JTeL) has certified the initial operating environment for BAE Systems' multi-band JC4ISR radio as compliant to the Department of Defense's Software Communications Architecture 2.2 specifications. JC4ISR stands for Joint Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance.

The JC4ISR radio will enable military forces to communicate better and more widely in a combat arena.

"BAE Systems leads the development of the JC4ISR radio, which will increase our ability to move from a few commanders communicating on the move to formations communicating on the move," says Col. Angel Colon, the U.S. Army's manager for the Warfighter Information Network-Tactical (WIN-T) program.

The JC4ISR radio is an integral element of WIN-T, the Army's future-generation network. The mission-critical system will be optimized for offensive and joint operations, allowing theater commanders to perform multiple missions. General Dynamics leads the WIN-T industry team.

The JTeL laboratory uses the BAE Systems Joint C4ISR and Advanced Joint C4ISR Node platforms to perform operating environment and waveform certifications. The core framework was developed using CMMI Level 5 software engineering processes and is targeted for use in JTRS products.
