Raytheon has success with EPLRS

FORT BENNING, Ga., March 3 (UPI) -- Raytheon announced it has reached a milestone after successfully demonstrating a tactical wireless network for the U.S. Army.

U.S. company Raytheon said that during the recent Expeditionary Warrior Experiments demonstration for the U.S. Army's Experimental Force, its Enhanced Position Location Reporting System supported a seamless wireless network.


Raytheon officials said the tactical wireless network integrated with the company's EPLRS technology, provided end-to-end connectivity of voice, data and video connection between soldiers, unmanned systems and vehicles.
