Raytheon Company has successfully demonstrated networked communications for a battlefield surveillance solution using the Enhanced Position Location Reporting System-Extended Frequency-International (EPLRS-XF-I) with 2Mbps capability. This was shown during a second-phase field demonstration in support of Indian military's modernisation drive.

System performance during the April 2010 demo was marked by a highly reliable 2Mbps � the first time this has been demonstrated with EPLRS internationally � across distances exceeding 30km, using stationary as well as mobile nodes. It provided for the simultaneous voice, video and data communication, yet in an easy-to-use, simplified architecture.

"Working with Precision Electronics Limited of Noida, India, we have shown Bharat Electronics Limited and the Indian Ministry of Defence that the EPLRS family of radios provides a tailored, low-risk netted communications solution to meet specific MoD requirements," said Brian McKeon, vice president, Raytheon Network Centric Systems Integrated Communications Systems.

The demonstration featured networked communications for a battlefield surveillance solution. The versatile communications unit supplied a secure, wireless network system in static and mobile operating environments where the network infrastructure did not initially exist.

EPLRS is a widely used tactical wireless networks today, with more than 25,000 units fielded across the U.S. armed services, Canada and Australia. The XF-I system uses boasts of an advanced EPLRS waveform available for communications, critical position location information and effective electronic counter-countermeasures. It provides a robust, self-healing network that automatically adapts to network changes, including in difficult urban environments.
