Boeing Joint Tactical Radio System, Ground Mobile Radios Program Completes System Integration Testing

HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif., Oct. 26, 2010 -- Boeing [NYSE: BA] announced today that it has completed system integration testing on the Joint Tactical Radio System, Ground Mobile Radios (JTRS GMR) program.

"Boeing and its team completed system integration testing and supported several government demonstrations this summer that used the secure, multichannel networking capabilities of JTRS GMR," said Ralph Moslener, JTRS GMR program director for Boeing. "The demonstrations included transmitting data in a 900-square-kilometer mobile network and acting as a wideband networking node on an Apache helicopter. Throughout the events, JTRS GMR demonstrated its ability to serve as the secure communications backbone for Army modernization."

This year, JTRS GMR supported the entire 2010 Brigade Combat Team Modernization testing cycle, which culminated in the Limited User Test in September.

"The JTRS GMR team is focused on completing security certification and preparing to deliver this advanced communications capability to the Army," said Moslener.
