A team led by Boeing submitted its bid last week to design and develop the Airborne and Maritime/Fixed Station Joint Tactical Radio System (AMF JTRS) for the U.S. Department of Defense. Boeing’s team includes Harris, L-3 Communications, Rockwell Collins, BBN Technologies, Milcom Systems Corporation and Northrop Grumman. Contract award is anticipated later this year. Boeing said its system offers a low-cost, low-risk solution based on successful demonstrations that showcased interoperability between JTRS radios and radios currently used by joint forces. Boeing said its system will provide the military with software-defined radios that feature Internet-like capabilities, allowing air, land and sea assets to communicate in a network-centric environment.
