MCKINNEY, Texas, May 29 (UPI) -- A Raytheon-led team announced it has been selected to demonstrate its Ground Soldier Ensemble technologies for the U.S. Army.
U.S. company Raytheon says its team, which includes Black Diamond Advanced Technology and CHI Systems Inc., was selected by the Army Tank-automotive and Armaments Command's Contracting Center to conduct the demonstration.
Under the $11.8 million deal Raytheon will provide a Ground Soldier Ensemble technology demonstration. Officials say the GSE is a dismounted soldier tactical situational awareness and communications network solution for troops during operations.
"Raytheon's GSE will provide decisive tactical awareness to the infantry brigade combat team soldier through real-time display of networked battlefield information," Glynn Raymer, Raytheon Network Centric Systems Combat Systems vice president, said in a statement.
"In essence, GSE can make a fully networked theater of operations possible by finally linking the most important element, the dismounted soldier."
