On 16th May, Persistent Systems, LLC – the developer, manufacturer, and integrator of the patented and secure Mobile Ad Hoc Networking (MANET) system, Wave Relay®, announced that they have signed a 5-year contract with Raytheon. The scope of the contract is integration of the MANET technology into the Raytheon’s family of manned and unmanned systems and sensors.
Persistent Systems is headquartered in New York City since 2007 and is a worldwide communications technology company. Its CEO, Herbert Rubens, said about the concluded deal that “Persistent’s vision is to empower the soldier via the network. The real winner today is the soldier on the ground. As industry leaders, such as Raytheon, incorporate Wave Relay® technology into their systems and sensors, the soldiers gain massively increased capability without having to carry any additional weight. The advanced systems that Raytheon is developing will improve situational awareness, protect our soldiers, and make them more effective.”
Wave Relay® enhances connectivity and communication performance through quick and continuous adapting to the fluctuations in a given terrain and other environmental conditions.
It was also revealed from the company that integration of the system has already been started.
John Hobday, of Raytheon Advanced Concepts, emphasized, “Over the next 5 years, the battlefield will experience a transformational infusion of autonomy, collaborative behaviors, swarming, and artificial intelligence. A scalable, dynamic, peer-to-peer communication system with edge computing will provide the foundation on which these technologies will be built.”
