Raytheon Wins First-ever Public Safety LTE contract, Will Deploy 15-Site Communications System

Raytheon (NYSE: RTN) has won the first competitive public safety longterm evolution contract in the U.S.

For the $8.7 million award, Raytheon will design, configure and install a 15-site 4G LTE communications system over the next 21 months to serve Adams County, Colo., and the adjacent Denver community.

The system will give public safety users access to next-generation broadband capabilities such as streaming video, remote data access and information sharing. It will join a nationwide LTE network that will provide data services to first responders.

Raytheon won funds through an ARRA-2009 stimulus grant and won the first contract under the U.S. Commerce Department‘s Broadband Technology Opportunities Program. The National Telecommunications and Information Administration is managing the grant.

“As an industry leader, Raytheon is fully committed to providing the best solution for each customer,” said William Iannacci, director of Raytheon’s civil communications solutions business unit. “We teamed with IPWireless, a recognized LTE market leader and the first to produce LTE user equipment for first responders. LTE is positioned to meet both current and future regional communications objectives for first responders for years to come.”
