CAMBRIDGE, Mass., 27 July 2016. Engineers atRaytheon BBN Technologies, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Raytheon Company (NYSE:RTN) in Cambridge, Massachusetts, are working on technologies to enable next-generation manned and unmanned aircraft to communicate seamlessly, even in hostile environments. Raytheon BBN Technologies won two contracts totaling $9 million to deliver new networking solutions under the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency's Dynamic Network Adaptation for Mission Optimization (DyNAMO) program.

The DyNAMO program’s goal is to enable pilots of different types of aircraft, with different sensor suites, to easily share information for a comprehensive view of the battle space.

"Our team will develop two new capabilities. First, we will adapt radio parameters in reaction to changing information needs and conditions, so current and future airborne networks can communicate with each other," explains Jason Redi, vice president for Raytheon BBN Technologies' Networking and Communications unit. "Second, we will create an efficient way to share information across and between networks that are currently incompatible so that applications operating on them can share relevant data."

Raytheon Company, with 2015 sales of $23 billion and 61,000 employees, is a technology and innovation provider specializing in defense, civil government, and cybersecurity solutions. With a history of innovation spanning 94 years, Raytheon provides state-of-the-art electronics, mission systems integration, C5ITM products and services, sensing, effects, and mission support for customers in more than 80 countries.
