Raytheon Awarded $45.5 Million for Sensor Netting Technology

TEWKSBURY, Mass., Oct. 16, 2007 /PRNewswire/ -- Under a $45.5 million contract for sensor fusion and advanced networking technology, the Department of Defense (DoD) is purchasing the Raytheon Solipsys Tactical Component Network (TCN®) technology.

"TCN provides a critical warfighting capability in the form of a sensor netting framework to achieve a single integrated picture and joint interoperability," said Mark Trenor, president of Raytheon Solipsys. "TCN also provides a path forward for a joint framework to support an interoperable 'plug-and-fight' architecture, which is needed by the warfighter today."

This award follows a similar procurement by the Missile Defense Agency earlier in the year in support of Ballistic Missile Defense System initiatives. As part of this latest award, Raytheon Solipsys is also providing run-time licensing of its Tactical Display Framework visualization product at no cost across all DoD and Missile Defense Agency programs.
