Raytheon Completes Acceptance Testing for the United Kingdom's Royal Air Force

FALLS CHURCH, Va., Sept. 21, 2005 /PRNewswire/ -- Raytheon Company has successfully completed flight trials and acceptance testing for the EXTRACT System, an airborne reconnaissance system aboard a special airborne reconnaissance aircraft for the United Kingdom's Royal Air Force.

The company provided airborne reconnaissance systems, ground based analysis systems and a rear crew trainer and will provide continued contractor logistic support for the new system through 2013.

The reconnaissance system Raytheon developed consists of an airborne payload that examines routine radio and radar emissions while providing electronic combat support to military commanders. This upgrade provides enhanced automated capabilities to respond to current and future threats.

"Raytheon has more than 30 years of experience providing airborne reconnaissance systems. We are extremely pleased that these capabilities can be leveraged within the European theater," said John Nannen, vice president of Tactical Intelligence Systems for Raytheon Intelligence and Information Systems.

Derek Whittaker, the U.K. Ministry of Defence (MOD) project manager, stated: "A project of this complexity is not without its problems, but the Raytheon engineers, project managers and senior management have to be congratulated in the manner in which they have all worked closely with the U.K. MOD to provide a system that in some respects far exceeds the original expectation. The completion of the acquisition phase of the contract is a laudable milestone and could only be accomplished in an atmosphere of co- operation, openness and trust between all parties, which has been clearly evident during the crucial acceptance process."

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...
The hierarchical architecture that distributes "compute" within the network specially at the edge can enable new services by harnessing emerging technologies.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
