Raytheon will be supplying the Air Force with its D-RAPCON system, which it refers to as an "air traffic control system in a box." D-RAPCON is transportable, providing the ability to support enroute surveillance and control capability for use by military aircraft in remote areas. 
 

The Department of Defense reports that the D-RAPCON systems are scheduled to be delivered by December 2016.
