Airborne high-frequency radio to be developed by RaytheonNews
September 04, 2019
FORT WAYNE, Ind. Raytheon will develop and qualify a high-frequency radio under a $36 million Project Agreement through an Other Transaction Agreement (OTA) with Consortium Management Group.
The OTA is on behalf of Consortium for Command, Control, and Communications in Cyberspace, in support of requirements from the U.S. Air Force Life Cycle Management Center.
The new radio will provide beyond line-of-sight, long distance communications for aircrews, according to claims made by the company.
The Raytheon-FlexRadio team is one of two recipients for this development program. After the 31-month period of performance, one team will be named to move on to production.
