Raytheon completes second-phase system demo

Defence contractor Raytheon has proved its tactical networked communications capabilities using the Enhanced Position Location Reporting System – Extended Frequency – International (EPLRS-XF-I) during a second-phase field demonstration in support of India’s modernisation efforts.

System performance during the April 2010 demo was marked by 2Mbps across distances exceeding 30km, using stationary as well as mobile nodes.

It provided for simultaneous voice, video and data communication for a battlefield-surveillance solution, supplying a secure, wireless network system in static and mobile operating environments where the network infrastructure did not initially exist.
