Raytheon Wins Contract to Build the Global Aircrew Strategic Network Terminal for US Air Force
Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN), the only provider of fielded Advanced Extremely High Frequency (AEHF) satellite communications terminals that provide survivable, secure, jam-resistant communications to the U.S. military, has submitted a proposal to build the Global Aircrew Strategic Network Terminal (GASNT) for the U.S. Air Force.
GASNT is a nuclear command and control system that will use both Extremely High Frequency (EHF) and AEHF waveforms to provide protected communications in difficult environments. The terminal provides wing command posts and mobile support teams with survivable communications to send and receive alerts, called Emergency Action Messages.
GASNT will enhance the existing system by delivering increased capacity and capability.
