Raytheon to integrate Persistent’s Wave Relay MANET tech into specific platforms

NEW YORK. Persistent Systems and Raytheon officials entered into a five-year agreement, in which Raytheon will incorporate Persistent’s Wave Relay MANET technology into Raytheon’s family of manned and unmanned systems and sensors.

Engineers have begun the integration process across a number of Raytheon platforms, officials say.

“Over the next 5 years, the battlefield will experience a transformational infusion of autonomy, collaborative behaviors, swarming, and artificial intelligence. A scalable, dynamic, peer-to-peer communication system with edge computing will provide the foundation on which these technologies will be built,” says John Hobday, of Raytheon Advanced Concepts.
